Ynoa will be making his fourth start since returning from the injured list.
After successfully snapping a three-game losing streak, the Atlanta Braves will try to make it two straight wins Friday night when they continue their series against the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field. A two-run home run by Adam Duvall gave Atlanta a 6-5 lead Thursday night and the bullpen held strong to secure the win. The Braves will enter play Friday with a 71-62 record and a two game lead over the Philadelphia Phillies in the NL East standings.
Huascar Ynoa will make his fourth start since returning from the injured list on August 17. He has been solid over his previous three starts allowing 10 hits and five runs while striking out 16 hitters in 17 1/3 innings. He allowed three hits, three walks and two runs over six innings in his last outing against the Giants.
The Rockies will go with right-hander Antonio Senzatela who is in the midst of his best stretch of the season. Senzatela allowed just two hits and struck out five over seven scoreless innings in his last start against the Dodgers. He has allowed a total of 13 hits and three earned runs over his last 20 innings. Senzatela has pitched better at home posting a 3.89 ERA 12 starts at Coors Field versus a 4.56 ERA away from home.
Ozzie Albies worked out on the field prior to Thursday’s opener but sat out his second straight game. He appeared to be moving well and barring any setbacks, could return to the lineup Friday.
Friday’s game is scheduled to get underway at 8:40 p.m. ET and can be seen on Bally Sports Southeast.
