A winning streak will be on the line for the Los Angeles Dodgers on Thursday when they battle the Atlanta Braves at Dodger Stadium.

The Braves will give the ball to starter Mike Foltynewicz in this one. Right hander Foltynewicz is 7-5 this season with a 3.84 ERA.

Meanwhile, it’ll be Brandon McCarthy who starts for the Dodgers. Right hander McCarthy is 6-3 with a 3.37 ERA so far this season.

Foltynewicz is riding an eight-start unbeaten streak during which he has recorded four victories and allowed more than two runs only twice. One of those two instances occurred on Saturday, when the 25-year-old native of Illinois gave up three runs on eight hits and three walks in 5 1/3 innings of a no-decision against Arizona. Foltynewicz, who hasn’t lost since May 27 at San Francisco, will be facing Los Angeles for the first time in his career.

McCarthy is in the midst of an unbeaten streak of his own but has picked up just one win during the five-start stretch. The 34-year-old Californian escaped with his third consecutive no-decision at Miami on Friday after surrendering four runs and seven hits in 4 2/3 innings. McCarthy lost his only career start against Atlanta on June 6, 2014, when he yielded three runs and nine hits in 6 1/3 frames.

Oddsmakers currently have the Dodgers listed as 205-moneyline favorites versus the Braves, while the game’s total is sitting at 8½.

The Atlanta Braves face the unenviable task of trying to cool down the Los Angeles Dodgers when the clubs begin a four-game series at Dodger Stadium on Thursday. The National League West-leading Dodgers are riding an 11-game winning streak and have captured 31 of their last 35 contests – the best stretch in franchise history since the 1899 Brooklyn Superbas put together an identical string.

Los Angeles rolled to a rain-shortened 9-1 triumph over the White Sox in Chicago on Wednesday to complete a two-game sweep and improve to a major league-best 66-29 – the franchise’s best record after 95 games since the 1942 Brooklyn Dodgers went 67-28. Enrique Hernandez went deep twice, Chris Taylor and Corey Seager combined to go 6-for-8 with two homers, five RBIs and five runs scored and Justin Turner recorded a pair of hits to raise his league-leading batting average to .372 as the Dodgers moved 37 games above .500 for the first time since 1974. Atlanta begins an 11-game road trip after being swept by the Chicago Cubs in a three-game home series during which it was outscored 17-6. Ender Inciarte has recorded four multi-hit performances over his last six contests after going 2-for-4 with a solo homer in Wednesday’s 8-2 setback.

The Dodgers were a 9-1 winner in their most recent outing on the road against the White Sox. That made winners of bettors who got Los Angeles at -185 on the moneyline, while the total score (10) was good news for OVER bettors.

The Braves were a 8-2 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Cubs. That made winners of bettors who got Chicago at -125 on the moneyline, while the total score (10) was good news for OVER bettors.
