Pivetta continued his hot start by dismantling the Cincinnati Reds, going seven innings giving up two earned off of five hits while striking out seven and walking zero. It was a gem for Pivetta who only needed 103 pitches to get through seven.
His impressive stat line now sits at 10.26 K/9, 1.08 BB/9, 0.00 HR/9, 2.70 ERA and the most impressive stat line of them all, a 1.32 FIP. Even though it is still very early, he is pitching some solid baseball at this time in spite of the fact that he has been a tad unlucky with a .326 BABIP.
Although Philadelphia is only slashing .223/.306/.398 in the last week, they have been making those hits count smacking 20 extra-base hits and 37 RBI. They currently own a BB:K ratio of 63:134.
Foltynewicz took the loss in his third start against the Washington Nationals. He traveled five innings giving up two earned off of five hits while striking out three and walking two. After striking out Washington eight times in his previous start, he could only induce three this time, which is understandable as Washington had that familiarity factor.
It was another typical outing for Foltynewicz who usually taps out between five and six innings while giving up a couple of runs. He owns a solid stat line as he’s producing strike outs (10.57 K/9) while keeping the walks to a minimum (2.93 BB/9), and has been stingy with giving up runs owning a 2.93 ERA and 3.58 FIP.
Atlanta’s lineup has been in a little slump slashing .245/.332/.402 in their last five games while hitting 19 extra-base hits and only 19 RBI (10 RBI came from just one game). Their discipline at the plate has been solid owning a BB:K ratio of 60:113.

Free Philadelphia Phillies vs. Atlanta Braves MLB Prediction: Atlanta edges out Philadelphia
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Braves -112 & UNDER the Total
The Braves just had a cold road trip and they should be feeling good coming back to play in the warm confines of their home field. The Phillies have been hot winning eight of their last nine, but that was against bottom-feeders like Cincinnati, Miami and Tampa Bay.
This should be a close contest, but I like Atlanta’s bullpen edge over Philadelphia’s. I also expect this to be a low scoring contest.
