On a 17-2 tear to virtually cement the NL East as October awaits, Atlanta is pushing once- unapproachable Los Angeles for home field through the National League playoffs.
With this success, it can be said no team made smarter trade deadline choices than the Braves.
Featuring a solidified bullpen, Atlanta has won nine-consecutive, granting fewer than five runs in each of their last six starts. Fueled by recent head-to-head success vs. LAD, the new-look Braves have left Washington, Toronto, CHW, the Mets, Miami, and yes, the Dodgers in their wake.
Mike Foltynewicz looks to keep Atlanta’s freight train momentum alive tonight as he makes his 18th start this season.
After a rocky 2019 beginning, Foltynewicz (5-5, 5.28 ERA) owns four-straight winning decisions and the Braves are 9-0 in the former All Star’s last nine outings. In his last five starts, Foltynewicz sports a 2.96 ERA.
Further, through six innings of one-run ball June 16, Foltynewicz aided Atlanta’s 15-1 romp of Philadelphia.
The Braves are 6-3 in their nine most recent contests vs. Philadelphia.
Jockeying for wildcard position as the regular season fades, the fightin’ Phills have been up-and-down of late. Currently trailing the final NL playoff spot by three games, Philadelphia ended a mini losing streak by blanking NYM 5-0 Saturday.
Minus Bryce Harper (hand injury), the Phillies used timely offense from Cesar Hernandez (2 RBI), Corey Dickerson (2 RBI) & J.T. Realmuto (3 hits, 1 RBI) to protect SP Drew Smyly’s work and earn a crucial divisional win vs. the plunging Mets.
That same intensity is needed today against the laser-focused Braves as both Milwaukee, Arizona and the Cubs block Philadelphia’s postseason path.
Tonight’s starting Phillies ace Aaron Nola (12-4, 3.63 ERA) saw his streak of quality outings erased last week by Pittsburgh. Through four innings, Nola allowed five runs as Philly dropped an 8-5 encounter.
To reclaim form, Nola will seek his fourth win this season against Atlanta: Philadelphia is 4-0 in 2019 when Nola opens against the Braves. The former All Star has mastered Atlanta from every angle over the spring and summer to give the Phillies a psychological edge entering tonight’s NL East showcase.

Free Atlanta Braves vs. Philadelphia Phillies MLB Prediction:
The Braves are giving their best when performances matter most. That stated, all good things must end. Look for a determined Philadelphia team, behind its top pitcher who is unbeaten in four outings vs Atlanta this year, to deliver.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Philadelphia Phillies SU & Under the Total
Again, Nola’s presence and successful knowledge of Atlanta will pay dividends tonight. Expect the 26-year-old to handcuff the Braves’ offense as Philly adds just enough run support off Foltynewicz to eke an upset win.
