Atlanta has been on a mixed streak recently, securing victories in three of the last five games, including back-to-back wins against the Philadelphia Phillies. Offensively, the Braves are led by Marcell Ozuna, who boasts a .295 batting average and a .566 slugging percentage. The Braves' batting average stands at .243, placing them 16th in the league, while slugging percentage is 12th at .406. 

Defensively, Atlanta excels with a team ERA of 3.43, ranking 2nd in the league, and they've allowed the fewest home runs, only 76. Charlie Morton will need to continue his solid performance to keep the Diamondbacks' hitters at bay and help the Braves secure another victory on the road.

On the other hand, Arizona enters the game after a strong series against the San Diego Padres and the Los Angeles Dodgers, winning four out of the last five games. Christian Walker has been a key player for the Diamondbacks, with a .268 average and a .513 slugging percentage, while Corbin Carroll has also been productive with 15 home runs and 24 RBIs. The Diamondbacks have a higher team batting average at .255, ranking 6th, and an on-base percentage is 5th at .325. 

However, pitching has been a concern, with a team ERA of 4.65, placing them 29th. Zac Gallen, with his impressive 3.06 ERA, will be crucial in countering Atlanta's offense. The Diamondbacks will need the bullpen to step up and provide solid support to ensure they can capitalize on home field advantage.
