Philadelphia Phillies vs Atlanta Braves Prediction

Suarez really struggled in his last start, but he still sits with an ERA of 2.27, and he’s going to really step up again here. The Braves' offense has been inconsistent, and they are going to really struggle to get going here. Schwellenbach gave up four runs in his last start, and he sits with an ERA of 5.68. The Braves won’t have the offense to keep up, and the Phillies will get the job done. Back the Phillies.
