Oakland Athletics v Atlanta Braves
Oakland Athletics v Atlanta Braves Game 1

A two-game series between the Oakland Athletics and the Atlanta Braves starts Tuesday night. Both teams are coming off a win. With the Braves near the top of the league and the A's near the bottom, it will be an interesting contest between teams in contrasting situations.

"Heading West" - Athletics

The Athletics are last in the American League West. They are far behind all the other teams in the division. Terrible home and away records have left them 37 games behind the division-leading Houston Astros. Now already out of the race, they should look to play more freely and without pressure. It will be extremely difficult to dismantle a team like the Braves.

Atlanta has been brilliant and well-balanced on all fronts. They have immense firepower in their belly as well as seasoned pitchers, showing all the other teams why they are the defending champions. The Braves are currently on a 7-3 run and will aim for a clean sweep against the Athletics. Above them are only the New York Mets.
