Atalanta have been poor this season 16-36 and far, and playing against a Right hand pitcher
(like tonight) they haven't been very good (10-24) this season, but then have the LA Dodgers been a lot better, a bit but not a lot, the dodgers have been performing bellow expectations but even so better then the Atalanta, but they have failed to perform good at home (13-12 this season) and both teams come to this game with the same problem - lack of confidence and lack of fire power from their batters!
So with both teams batting quite poorly (0.205 vs 0.207) in the last 7
games - OBP of 0.277 vs 0.265 and in OBP even atalanta have been betterin the last 7 games so they are getting more hits, I wouldn't say the difference tonight will be in the batting department.
The main difference will come from the starting pitcher - in this department Atalanta will show on the mount a pitcher in a much better shape and morale.
Theran (Atalanta) is a very decent pitcher, and has
been performing in thelast 3 games and also on the road quite admirably (ERA of 1.8 a nd WHIP pof 0.800) very impressive indeed - the most impressive thing about theran is the amount of SO he is able to obtain in a game, 2 games ago against Milwaukke he got 12 SO in 7 innings - superb!
The last 8 games Theran has been performing at a very high
standard and he has the consistence to give me the confidence he will do that tobight. On the other mount we will have Maeda (LA dodgers), he is a very decent pitcher also, but he going through a bit of a slump - last 3 games he has an ERA of 5.14 and a WHIP of 1.143, true he hasnb't been fortunate because most of the hits he allowed turned into runs, but when you SO so little and alllows a decent number of BB's you can expect that.
Maeda will last about 5 innings in the field and then the bull pen will start his job - Maeda come from a good game against the Mets, but he isn't a consistent pitcher, so I am not that confident on him. the bulpen will not change the game much this evening, although the LA Dodgers have a better bullpen 2.39 vs 3.69 of ERA, they will have about 4 innings with the bullpen against probably about 2 innings for Atalanta's bullpen, so the impact will be minor, for me this is a good game fr Atalanta to win and to win with a few runs margin.
