The Atlanta Braves and the Colorado Rockies will both be gunning for a victory on Wednesday when they meet at Coors Field.

Right hander Mike Foltynewicz will take the mound for the Braves to start this game. Foltynewicz is 10-7 this season with a 4.29 ERA.

It’ll be Jon Gray toeing the rubber for the Rockies in this contest. Right hander Gray is 4-2 with a 4.92 ERA so far this season.

Foltynewicz has lasted four innings or fewer while losing two of his last three starts but recorded a career-best 11 strikeouts in the win during that span. The 25-year-old already has set a career high for victories and won six decisions in a row in one stretch prior to the recent inconsistency. Foltynewicz is 0-2 with a 3.20 ERA in five career appearances (three starts) against the Rockies and has been rocked by DJ LeMahieu (7-for-9) while shutting down Arenado (0-for-7) and Charlie Blackmon (1-for-9).

Gray did not factor in the decision against Miami in his last outing, when he gave up three earned runs and eight hits over 5 2/3 innings. The 25-year-old is 3-0 with 3.00 ERA in four turns at home this season and 10-3 with a 4.70 ERA in 23 career outings at Coors Field. Gray went 1-0 with a 0.64 ERA in two starts against the Braves last season.

Oddsmakers currently have the Rockies listed as 179-moneyline favorites versus the Braves, while the game’s total is sitting at 11.

The Atlanta Braves have halted their lengthy skid at Coors Field and look to follow up with another win on Wednesday in the third contest of their four-game series against the Colorado Rockies. Atlanta snapped its 11-game slide in Denver by capitalizing on a rare miscue by Nolan Arenado on Tuesday to record a 4-3 victory.

Arenado, a four-time Gold Glove third baseman, made a throwing error with two outs in the eighth inning to allow Brandon Phillips to score the tiebreaking run. The victory was only the third for Atlanta in its last 16 overall meetings with the Rockies, who are tied with Arizona for the two National League wild-card berths. Arenado, who has committed five errors on the campaign, hit his 27th homer for Colorado, which also saw Mark Reynolds and Trevor Story go deep despite losing for the sixth time in eight games. Nick Markakis homered for Atlanta, which has won just six of its last 22 contests.

Colorado lost its last outing, a 4-3 result against the Braves on August 15. Bettors who backed the Braves at 172 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (7) sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.

Atlanta was a 4-3 winner in its last match on the road against the Rockies. They won as +172 underdogs, while the total score of 7 made winners of UNDER bettors.
