Mike Foltynewicz was good on Monday but Nick Pivetta was even better. Pivetta shut the Braves out for seven innings and the Philadelphia ‘pen preserved his work.
The win was Philly’s third in the four games those two starters have squared off against each other this year. The Phillies crept within a half-game of the Braves for first-place in the NL East and have a chance to overtake them on Tuesday.
Luiz Gohara hasn’t started a game this season but he has been dominant in just seven innings out of the bullpen, giving up two hits and a run in seven innings.
The young lefty from Brazil did start five games last season, including one against the Phillies when he went seven innings and gave up one run, striking out nine.
He doesn’t have a ton of starting experience but when you watch him, it’s clear he has the type of stuff that will be dominant if and when he harnesses it consistently. It might just be a matter of getting the opportunity.
The Phillies send a man to the mound who has plenty of starting experience, either to finish a sweep or win a rubber match, depending how Tuesday’s game goes.
Jake Arrieta got knocked around over the weekend in St. Louis. He only lasted three innings and gave up five runs on four hits and a couple of walks.
Arrieta hasn’t started a game against the Braves since 2016. He was good in that outing but the Braves were a much different team.
