|Doc's MLB 10* Run Line Game of the Year|
10-Unit Play. Take #957 Atlanta (-1.5 rl)over NY Mets (7:10 p.m. Thursday, August 2)
Mike Foltynewicz has hit a rough patch where he has lost three out of his last five starts but I think he will have better luck facing the Mets. Foltynewicz dominated the Mets in his only start against them this season on June 12th in an 8-2 win when he allowed zero runs over five innings yielding just two hits while striking out six. The Mets are a complete mess right now and are without Todd Frazier, Jay Bruce, Yoenis Cespedes who are injured and they traded Asdrubel Cabrera to the Phillies before the trade deadline. The Mets have some solid starting pitchers but Jason Vargas is not one of them. Vargas hasn't lasted more than 5 innings in any of his starts for the Mets this year and in two starts against the Braves this season his ERA is 5.59, with Atlanta batting .317 off him in 9.2 innings while swatting 3 home runs. These teams are headed in opposite directions and I like Atlanta to pick up the win tonight.
Best of Luck - Doc's Sports
