The Braves enter this game on a four-game winning streak having won the first contest of the series 3-1 on Tuesday night. ATL got a big night from the Kung Fu Panda, Pablo Sandoval, who had 3 hits against his former team. Charlie Morton also pitched well, allowing 0 ER with 9 Ks to pick up the win. The Red Sox have dropped back-to-back games, but there’s reason to believe they could bounce back against Smyly. Boston as a team bats .275 against lefties this season and most of their power bats — Xander Bogaerts, JD Martinez, Alex Verdugo — bat from the right side. Rookie Bobby Dalbec has actually raked against lefties with 4 HRs and 10 RBI in 46 ABs.
