This movie is getting old. Mike Foltynewicz and Nick Pivetta will face one another on Monday for the fourth time this season.
The first matchup came on March 30 in the first series of the season, a game Philadelphia won on the road in 11 innings. Nick Pivetta left the game after four innings, down a run. Foltynewicz left an inning later with the game tied.
Neither starter figured in the decision in the second matchup, another extra-innings win for Philadelphia in Atlanta.
Both guys did pitch well, though. Pivetta gave up five hits and no walks in five innings and Foltynewicz walked four but only gave up one run and struck out eight in six. Both gave up a run.
Ronald Acuna Jr. was in the lineup on April 28 in Philadelphia and the Braves finally won a game in the matchup, 4–1 behind a Nick Markakis home run and another six stellar innings out of Foltynewicz.
He gave up three hits and one run, striking out six. Pivetta, meanwhile, labored through five innings, giving up six hits and walking three.
So this will be Foltynewicz’s chance to even the series. Depending on how Sunday’s games go, Philadelphia could either be playing for first-place or in first-place already.
Atlanta is a big favorite in the rubber match against Florida and Philadelphia takes on St. Louis. Both teams must travel after their game, though.
