Sunday: Patrick Corbin (1-3, 4.91 ERA) vs. Mike Foltynewicz (0-1, 9.82 ERA)
All eyes will be on the first game of the series. Arizona’s supposed ace Zack Greinke will take on Aaron Blair—a key piece in the trade for Shelby Miller. Miller and his former teammate Julio Teheran will face off the following night in another intriguing matchup. The Braves’ Kelly Johnson and Freddie Freeman hold a career .444 and .400 batting average against Miller respectively, while Diamondbacks slugger Paul Goldschmidt owns a measly .083 batting average against Teheran.
