My Prediction: The Braves continued their 2011 dominance over the Rockies last night with a 7-4 win. That makes the Braves 5-0 this year after sweeping a 4-game series from the Rox prior to the All-Star Break. Ubaldo Jimenez has not gone more than 6 innings against the Braves in 6 of his 7 starts. The other start was a no-hitter last year in Atlanta. Brandon Beachy will be making his first career start against Colorado. He has been very solid this year despite allowing 9 homeruns in 67 innings. Beach has a sparkling 1.80 ERA and 0.80 WHIP in 5 road starts this year. The Braves are hot right now and are only 2.5 games behind the Phillies in the N.L. East. This is good value for a team that is 27-20 on the road this year. Colorado is only 24-25 at Coors. Take the Braves.
