Preview: Cubs at Braves
Gracenote
May 16, 2018

The series between the Atlanta Braves and the visiting Chicago Cubs has already seen a little bit of everything - and it’s only one game old. After a wild series opener, the Braves hope to bounce back from a frustrating loss when they host the Cubs for the second of three games Wednesday.


Chicago scored two runs in the ninth to claim a 3-2 victory Tuesday in a game marred by replay controversy. Two bang-bang plays went against the Braves in the fifth inning, costing Atlanta two runs. It was the second consecutive one-run game between the National League contenders, as Atlanta won 6-5 in a make-up game at Chicago on Monday. The season series is tied at two games apiece.

TV: 7:35 p.m. ET, WGN (Chicago), FS Southeast (Atlanta)


PITCHING MATCHUP: Cubs RH Tyler Chatwood (3-3, 3.35 ERA) vs. Braves RH Brandon McCarthy (4-2, 5.58)

Chatwood has issued at least five walks in five of his seven starts, which has prevented him from pitching deeper into games. The 28-year-old has been effective, though, allowing two or fewer runs in five of his seven outings and winning his last three decisions. Chatwood is 2-2 with a 5.60 ERA in seven games (five starts) against Atlanta.

McCarthy has been hit hard in his first two starts this month, allowing 14 runs and 23 hits over 8 1/3 innings. The 34-year-old surrendered two home runs Friday at Miami and was charged with six runs and 11 hits over five frames in his second straight loss. McCarthy has an excellent track record against the Cubs, going 2-1 with a 1.11 ERA in five games (four starts).


WALK-OFFS

1. Braves 1B Freddie Freeman is 7-for-13 with two doubles versus Chatwood.

2. Cubs C Willson Contreras is 11-for-22 with nine extra-base hits and 11 RBIs over his past six games.

3. Atlanta SS Dansby Swanson (wrist) took batting practice on the field Tuesday and is on track to play a rehab game Thursday, and could possibly be activated Friday against Miami.


PREDICTION: Cubs 6, Braves 4

Preview: Astros at Angels
Gracenote
May 16, 2018

Jose Altuve hasn't looked much like a three-time batting champion lately, but he delivered a big hit when his team needed it the most Tuesday to keep the Houston Astros in first place in the American League West. After showing signs he is ready to break out of a rare slump, the reigning AL MVP will try to lead the Astros to a series victory Wednesday when they visit the Los Angeles Angels in the rubber match of their three-game set.

Altuve, who reached base three times in Tuesday's 5-3 victory, delivered a go-ahead, three-run double to snap out of a 2-for-18 funk and give Houston a one-game edge atop the division standings over the Angels. Josh Reddick, who sparked the rally with a leadoff double and recorded two key assists from right field prior to the comeback, also scored an insurance run in the ninth as the Astros improved to 15-7 on the road this season and 16-9 against the AL West. Since beginning the season by winning 13 of its first 16, Los Angeles is 12-14 - including 3-3 in the middle of its 11-game homestand. Justin Upton remained hot in May, however, connecting on a two-run blast off Gerrit Cole in his first at-bat to run his totals for the month to seven homers and a majors-best 21 RBIs.

TV: 9:40 p.m. ET, AT&T SportsNet - Southwest (Houston), FS West (Los Angeles)

PITCHING MATCHUP: Astros RH Justin Verlander (4-2, 1.21 ERA) vs. Angels RH Garrett Richards (4-1, 4.08)

Verlander is winless over his last three turns after going 9-0 in his first 11 regular-season starts as an Astro, mostly as a result of being given one run of support over that span. The 2011 AL MVP fell to 0-2 in three May outings despite posting a 0.90 ERA following Friday's loss to Texas in which he yielded one run over six innings. Upton is 1-for-12 against Verlander, who earned his last victory versus the Angels on April 25 when he permitted two runs in seven frames.

Richards did not factor into the decision for the first time in five trips to the mound Thursday against Minnesota, giving up all of his runs across 5 1/3 innings on a three-run homer to Brian Dozier. The 29-year-old Oklahoma product enjoyed his finest outing of the season six days earlier when he tossed 6 2/3 scoreless frames in a victory at Seattle. Richards was dominant in two starts versus the Angels last season but failed to win either time despite allowing one run and fanning 10 over 11 innings.

WALK-OFFS

1. The Angels (1.91) and Astros (2.05) boast the AL's top ERAs from their respective rotations this month.

2. Los Angeles DH Albert Pujols went 1-for-4 on Tuesday, breaking his tie for 30th place on the all-time hits list with Al Kaline (3,008) and moving within two of Wade Boggs (3,010) for 29th.

3. Houston SS Carlos Correa has not committed an error in his last 52 games, one shy of the longest streak by an Astro shortstop since Adam Everett in 2006.

PREDICTION: Astros 4, Angels 1
