The Phillies hitters have been an unmitigated disaster this season, considering the team currently ranks 27th overall in runs scored.
The roster doesn’t have a hitter with double digit homeruns this year, as Tommy Joseph leads the Phils with 9.
Aaron Altherr has been a pleasant breakout surprise, with 8 HR, 28 RBI and a .283 average.
Taking the mound is youngster Aaron Nola, the former top pick who currently has a 5.06 ERA and a 1.44 WHIP this season in 6 starts.
He’ll face a tough test in the new hitter friendly Sun Trust Field in Atlanta, even despite facing a Freeman-less lineup.
As mentioned, the Braves will remain without their best hitter leading up to the All-Star Break, though the acquisition of Matt Adams has helped offset some of the loss production.
Adams now has 5 HR and a .268 average in 56 ABs and provides some lineup protection to Matt Kemp. Kemp leads the team with 30 RBI on the year.
Atlanta is somehow 2nd in the NL East with a 24-30 record.
Jaime Garcia has performed well this year, entering the matchup with a 3.18 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP in 10 starts.
Garcia has become the de facto ace of the Braves’ staff with Julio Teheran struggling, and will look to pick up win #3 on the year to even his record, despite having 6 Quality Starts already.
