Tommy Hanson and Ricky Nolasco are both talented young righthanders, but the edge in this matchup goes to Hanson and the Braves against the Marlins.
The Atlanta Braves and Florida Marlins conclude their three-game series when Tommy Hanson matches serves with Ricky Nolasco in a matchup of righthanders at Land Shark Stadium in Miami tonight.
Hanson enters tonight's contest with 10 wins in his 15 career team starts. He's also in super-sharp KW form with only four walks and 27 strikeouts in his last four efforts. That span includes pitching the Braves past the Fish in Atlanta a couple of weeks ago when he worked seven and struck out seven in a 4-3 win.
Nolasco checks in at 1-3 with a 5.50 ERA in his last four team starts and 2-7 with a 5.29 ERA in his career team starts in this series. With that look for Atlanta to come up big here this evening. We recommend a 1-unit play on Atlanta with Hanson versus Nolasco.
