The Braves are going to win the NL East. Atlanta is currently 90-56 and are 9.5 games ahead of the Nationals. The team has used a stellar offense to lead them to success. The Braves have the second most runs in the National League with 783.
The offense is led by Ronald Acuna Jr, Freddie Freeman, and Josh Donaldson. Acuna Jr. is hitting .283 with 38 homers and 34 stolen bases. Freeman is hitting .305 with 38 homers and 117 RBIs. Donaldson has added 37 homers and 88 RBIs.
On the mound for the Braves is Julio Teheran. Teheran is 10-8 with a 3.31 ERA this season. He is allowing the opposition to only hit .224.
The Phillies are in must-win mode at the moment.
The team stands at 75-69 and are two games behind the Chicago Cubs for the second NL Wild Card spot. Before the season the Phillies were seen as a playoff team with the signing of Bryce Harper.
While the Phillies haven’t had issues scoring, their pitching has been a mess. Philadelphia has allowed 710 runs, the fourth most in the NL. Drew Smyly (6.20 ERA), Jerad Eichoff (5.71 ERA), Vince Velasquez (4.95 ERA), and Nick Pivetta (5.52 ERA) have disappointed.
Philadelphia will call on Drew Smyly to start the series finale on Thursday. Smyly has struggled going 4-6 with a 6.20 ERA. Over his last two outings he has been stellar allowing one run in 12.1 innings.
