The Atlanta Braves and the Oakland Athletics will both be trying to pick up a win on Friday when they battle at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum.

Mike Foltynewicz will be the starting pitcher for the Braves on this day. Right hander Foltynewicz is 5-5 this season with a 4.10 ERA.

Starting this game for the Athletics will be Sonny Gray. The right hander has a 4.45 ERA to go along with a 3-3 record this season.

Foltynewicz extended his unbeaten streak to five starts last Friday, recording his second victory during the stretch after allowing one run and four hits in five innings against Milwaukee. The 25-year-old native of Illinois has given up fewer than three runs four times during his streak and six times over his last nine outings, going 5-1 over that span. Foltynewicz made his only career appearance against Oakland in relief, walking two batters and striking out another on Aug. 27, 2014 while with Houston.

Gray ended his five-start victory drought on Sunday at Chicago, as he limited the White Sox to two runs – one earned – and four hits over seven innings. The 27-year-old from Tennessee issued just one walk after handing out a total of seven free passes in his previous two turns. Gray lost his only career start against the Braves on Aug. 16, 2014, when he yielded four runs and eight hits in 5 1/3 frames at Atlanta.

Oddsmakers currently have the Athletics listed as 160-moneyline favorites versus the Braves, while the game’s total is sitting at 8½.

The Atlanta Braves had their consecutive series wins streak halted in San Diego but hope to begin another one when they visit the Oakland Athletics on Friday for the opener of their three-game set. Atlanta had won four straight series before dropping two of three to the Padres, including a 6-0 decision in Thursday’s rubber match.

The Braves registered only four hits in the setback, with Ender Inciarte notching a double to run his hitting streak to 11 games. Oakland returns home from a 4-2 road trip that concluded with back-to-back losses at Houston. The Athletics also struggled to record hits Thursday, producing only five in a 6-1 setback. Oakland hopes to have Yonder Alonso back in the lineup as the 30-year-old Cuban, who is third on the team with a career-high 17 home runs, missed Thursday’s loss after fouling a ball off his right knee a day earlier.

Oakland lost its last outing, a 6-1 result against the Astros on June 29. Bettors who backed the Astros at -209 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (7) sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.

The Braves were a 6-0 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Padres. That made winners of bettors who got San Diego at -138 on the moneyline, while the total score (6) was good news for UNDER bettors.
