PITCHING MATCHUP: Braves RH Mike Soroka (9-1, 2.42 ERA) vs. Padres RH Cal Quantrill (2-2, 4.83)

Soroka resumes his quest for NL Rookie of the Year after pitching a scoreless inning in Tuesday's All-Star Game as he entered Saturday tied for fifth place in wins and would be fourth in ERA if he had enough innings pitched in order to qualify. The 21-year-old, who has limited opponents to a .220 batting average and .567 OPS while posting a 1.05 WHIP during the first half, gave up four runs and nine hits in 4 2/3 innings on July 4 against Philadelphia. Soroka beat the Padres on April 29, allowing one run and four hits with eight strikeouts in six frames.

Quantrill will be making his eighth start and 12th appearance of his rookie season, after giving up three runs and five hits with a walk and four strikeouts over 4 1/3 innings against San Francisco in his return to the rotation on July 3. The 24-year-old was moved to the bullpen after posting a 5.23 ERA over his first six starts and has gone 1-0 with a 1.59 ERA in four relief appearances. Quantrill lost to the Braves in his major-league debut on May 1 at Atlanta, surrendering two runs and six hits in 5 2/3 innings of a 5-1 setback.

Atlanta is 6-2 in the last eight meetings.  We do believe they should be higher priced so this one does scare us off a bit.

Ideally we would be all over the Braves had Soroka been coming off a loss or no decision.
