The Braves send Ervin Santana to the hill to right the ship and get the Braves back on their winning ways. Santana will face off against Phillies starter Kyle Kendrick who has a much higher road ERA than home ERA. This bodes well for the Braves except for the fact that Kendrick actually has an identical home/road FIP suggesting his road struggles have been mostly just bad luck. Regardless he is much worse than Cole Hamels. The Braves should be able to have some success against Kendrick though the Braves best hitter as of late Evan Gattis is out of the lineup. Tommy La Stella though is batting fifth for the first time in his career so the Braves should score 20 runs pretty easily (just look at that sexy swing).
