Los Angeles Dodgers vs Atlanta Braves Match Preview
Max Muncy has enjoyed a high level of success in limited action against the Atlanta Braves, and the Los Angeles Dodgers second baseman put his team in position to clinch a road series victory Saturday with late-inning heroics. With the Dodgers trailing 3-2 in the seventh inning Friday, Muncy crushed a three-run homer to vault Los Angeles to an 8-3 victory and give him five homers, 12 RBIs and a .324 average in 11 career games against Atlanta.
In a matchup of the two teams with the best records in the National League, the Dodgers extended their dominance of the Braves by improving to 18-6 in regular-season meetings since 2016 by scoring six runs on five hits and three homers in the final three innings. Cody Bellinger slugged his NL-leading 41st homer of the season as the Dodgers went deep four times, giving them a major-league record five consecutive games with four or more homers. Atlanta outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. moved within one stolen base of recording a 30-homer, 30-steal campaign by swiping his NL-leading 29th base, but the Braves - whose lead in the NL East over Washington was sliced to 4 1/2 games - lost yet another player to injury when outfielder Ender Inciarte injured his right hamstring scoring a run in the second inning. Outfielder Matt Joyce, who figures to see increased playing time with Inciarte likely going to the injured list, went 1-for-4 with two RBIs and is hitting .333 in 13 starts this season.

Pitching Matchup: Dodgers LH Hyun-Jin Ryu (12-2, 1.45 ERA) vs. Braves RH Mike Foltynewicz (4-5, 6.24)
Ryu has established himself as the frontrunner for the NL Cy Young Award with a masterful season, leading the league in ERA, WHIP (0.93) and ranking second in strikeout-to-walk ratio (7.11). The 32-year-old missed one start earlier this month with neck stiffness, but returned from the injured list Sunday against Arizona and gave up five hits with one walk and four strikeouts over seven shutout innings. Ryu, who is 3-2 with a 2.22 ERA in 11 road starts, pitched a four-hit shutout May 7 against the Braves and fired seven shutout innings against them in Game 1 of last year’s NL Division Series.
Foltynewicz has provided hope he has rediscovered himself after a six-week stint in the minors, picking up wins in his first two starts since being recalled while striking out 14 over 11 1/3 innings. The 27-year-old gave up four runs on eight hits with two walks and seven strikeouts in six innings Sunday at Miami, after holding Minnesota to three runs on five hits with two walks and seven strikeouts in 5 1/3 frames on Aug. 6. Foltynewicz gave up five runs on five hits (including two homers) with four walks in six innings to lose to the Dodgers on May 8, and allowed five runs in six innings across two starts in last year’s NLDS.
