Charlie Morton vs. a Miami bullpen game

Last series before the All-Star Break. Braves are still not very good, Marlins still have more WAR-wins. My very limited goal for this game: don’t let Charlie Morton allow a zero-out, three-run homer to a lineup a third time through. You’d think that’s not a very lofty goal, but the Braves have failed it two Morton starts in a row, so...

Also, Anthony Bass has been by far the Marlins’ worst reliever this season, so getting him first with the top of the lineup seems like a scoring opportunity the Braves really shouldn’t waste.

Stay tuned.
