Mike Foltynewicz will make his second start of the season on Sunday for the Atlanta Braves as they look to snap a long nine-game losing streak at Turner Field. The Braves dropped a 7-2 decision in the series opener on Friday against Zack Grienke. Atlanta was unable to solve Shelby Miller on Saturday in a 4-2 defeat.
Foltynewicz struggled in his season debut allowing eight hits and four runs including three first inning home runs in a loss to the Mets. It was Foltynewicz's first big league start since he was shut down due to a blood clot last September.
The Diamondbacks will counter with lefty Patrick Corbin who is 1-3 with a 4.91 ERA this season. Corbin pitched well out of the gate for Arizona but has struggled of late allowing 14 earned runs over his last 17 innings.
As a team, Atlanta is hitting just .206 against left handed pitchers this season.
