The MLB is back in action today as the Philadelphia Phillies will face with the Atlanta Braves in game two of their three-game series at the SunTrust Park in Atlanta, Georgia. The Phillies will start this game with Nick Pivetta and on the other side, the Braves will counter with Mike Foltynewicz.
Philadelphia Phillies Form
The Phillies did not start the season well, as they lost the first game 1-4. Many of their fans were unhappy about the early performance, however, it seems that their luck has changed as the Phillies won their last six games in a row which placed them on the 2nd place in the National League East. The Phillies have outscored their foes by 4.44 runs per game during that nine-game stretch.
On the offensive side of the, the Phillies are in very good as they are ranked on the 5th place in scoring, putting up 5.64 runs per game, while also ranking 21st in hitting at .230 and 15th in homers with 16. On the mound, they have been a bit above average as they enter this game ranked 12th in the league in ERA at 3.52, while also ranking 8th in WHIP at 1.23 and 19th in K’s with 121.
Atlanta Braves Form
The Braves have have started the season well, yet they were demolished by the Cubs with a score of a 14-10, despite the fact that they had a 10-2 lead in the game. The disappointment is bigger since the Braves were leading 10-2 lead and a 10-5 lead heading to the bottom of the 8th, yet they have allowed nine runs in that inning which cost them the game.
On the offensive side of the game. Atlanta has been in a very good form as they are placed on the 3rd spot in scoring, putting up 5.86 runs per game, while also being placed at the 5th spot in hitting at .270 and 14th in homers with 16.
The Phillies did not started the season well, but they were quick to bounce back and tu turn around their season. On the other side, the Braves are a good offensive team and I think that they will give a hard time to Pivetta. However, I think the offensive firepower of the Phillies that has averaged 8.22 runs per game over their last nine games will prove to be a way to strong for the Braves. I go for the Phillies in this one.
