The Philadelphia Phillies are feeling good about themselves as they head into Atlanta to take on the Braves as they are coming off a series sweep against the Tampa Bay Rays. It was an excellent performance by the powerful lineup which scored 21 runs in the three games series.
On the mound for the Phillies will be Vince Velasquez who is finding his key pitch lately. Velasquez showed that his changeup can be a dangerous out pitch for him in a dominant 6 2/3-inning, seven-strikeout performance in his last outing against the Rays.
The Atlanta Braves are ready to start getting consistent once again as they have yet to win a series in the last two attempts. They started off the season very well but now are winning and losing on back to back nights.
On the mound for the Braves will be Brandon McCarthy who seems to be back to his normal ways. McCarthy made a quick recovery from the partially separated left shoulder ailment that limited him to five innings against the Nationals on Wednesday. The veteran has been effective, but is still looking to gain consistency with his slider.
