After being swept by consensus underdog Kansas City two games to none in interleague play, struggling Atlanta looks to get on track tonight vs. Philadelphia. Overall, the Braves have dropped six-of-eight as their once healthy NL East lead thins.
Leaky bullpen action and inconsistent bats have plagued Atlanta’s last eight starts. This evening staff ace and All Star Mike Soroka (10-2, 2.46 ERA) takes the mound seeking redemption after losing his last outing vs. Washington. That night the Nationals collected nine hits and four runs through six innings off Soroka. More so, Atlanta’s offense again failed as the Braves lost 3-5 against the Nationals.
Philadelphia, in a losing July 4 effort, found success during Soroka’s four worked innings. The Phillies gathered nine hits and four runs from Soroka before falling 12-6.
Since winning four straight after the All Star break Atlanta has lost its edge at a time division rivals such as Philadelphia have heated up.
The Braves are nearing must-win territory during this three game NL East series.
Having won six-of-eight, including three consecutive, Philadelphia looks to cut into the Braves’ 5.5 game lead tonight.
The Phillies swept Detroit during a recent two-game interleague set to place their confidence high before this evening’s matchup. A week of rest in early July has rejuvenated the once underachieving Phillies as the club continues strong two-way execution vs. all competition levels.
Meanwhile, Philly leads its 2019 series 5-4 against Atlanta – though the Braves owned the series’ last two contests in style outscoring Philadelphia 21-8 for consecutive wins.
Entering today’s tilt, however, Philadelphia holds all the momentum. And as shown by several post All Star underdog wins, momentum in baseball is vital.
Jake Arrieta (8-7, 4.40 ERA) holds an early season win over Atlanta. Arrieta mastered the Braves’ lineup March 31 while spinning six innings of three-hit, one-run ball as Philly cruised 5-1.

With Atlanta regressing to early-season form and Philadelphia re-gaining momentum, the intangibles certainly favor a Phillies club battling for its playoff life.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Phillies SU
Arrieta has already proven himself against this Braves’ lineup. Further Philly is playing much better baseball than Atlanta currently. Even though odd post All Star break outcomes are the norm in baseball, it’s hard to pick against Philly coming into this one. Philadelphia’s worth the underdog chalk.
