The Atlanta Braves and Philadelphia Phillies face off on Friday in an MLB showdown at Citizens Bank Park. On Thursday it was the Phillies that were able to secure the 1-0 victory.
The Phillies come into this game with an 82-67 record overall and they have won two games in a row. Three games ago against Toronto, they scored 11 runs, but still lost by seven. The Phillies' offense is averaging 4.66 runs per game which is seventh best in the league. Kyle Schwarber is having a big season hitting 40 home runs and driving in 85 RBIs.
On the other side of this matchup is the Braves who sit with a 93-57 record overall but they have lost two games in a row. Over the last two games they have given up only four runs, but they have scored only two runs, and that isn’t good enough. The Braves offense is averaging 4.87 runs per game which is 3rd in the league. Ronald Acuna Jr was scratched from the last game with back stiffness and it’s unclear his status for this game.
On the mound for the Braves is Jake Odorizzi who sits with a 5-5 record and an ERA of 4.04. In his last start against the Phillies he went 4.2 innings giving up two hits and one run.
On the mound for the Phillies is Aaron Nola who sits with a 9-12 record and an ERA of 3.38. In his last start, he went seven innings giving up seven hits and four runs.
The Phillies are 4-1 in Nola’s last five home starts. The under is 6-0 in the Braves last six games overall. The under is 6-0 in the Braves last six games against a right-handed starter. The under is 5-0 in Braves last 5 when their opponent scores 2 runs or less in their previous game.
There was only one run scored on Thursday, and runs will be hard again in this game. Nola sits with an ERA of 3.38 and the Braves offense has been more inconsistent the last few weeks. Odorizzi gave up only one run in his last start, and this game is going to be lower scoring. Back the under to cash here.
