The Phillies take on the Braves at Turner Field Friday evening in a battle of the bottom feeders.
The Phillies have lost four of their last five games, while the Braves have actually won two games in a row but have lost five of their last seven games.
The Phillies have Vince Velasquez on the mound who has been great. His record is 8-2 with a 3.34 ERA and 1.29 WHIP.
Tyrell Jenkins is on the rubber for the Braves and he has not been good but has shown promise. His record is 0-2 with a 6.17 ERA and 1.89 WHIP. He’s just 24 and getting his chance up in the Bigs.
The Phillies score the second least amount of runs in the Majors, just ahead of the Braves.
They average just 3.5 runs per game and are at the bottom 20 percent of the league in most offensive statistical categories.
They have scored just one run in their last two games but did score four runs in four of their last five games prior to these last two poor outings.
The Phillies have an average runs against, giving up 4.6 runs per game, putting them 17th in the majors.
Vince Valesquez is a big reason why that runs against is where it is, as his record and ERA are outstanding.
He was poor against the Pirates in his last start, giving up four runs over six innings but that’s hardly a bad start.
Besides that outing, he has given up two or less in every outing since June 3rd.
The Braves have struggled to score all season and are the worst in the league.
They managed to put up nine runs in their last game against the Twins but besides that, they have scored just 17 runs in their prior six games.
They are by far the worst offensive team in the league.
Tyrell Jenkins is better than his ERA suggests. Most of that poor ERA comes from his most recent outing against the Rockies in Colorado.
Besides that, the kid has been pretty good. He allowed just two over six innings against the Reds prior to the Rockies.
He gave up just one against these very Phillies on July 6th but the Phillies still won 4-3.

Free Philadelphia Phillies vs. Atlanta Braves MLB Prediction:
Both teams are terrible at producing runs so I can’t give either team the scoring edge here.
This comes down to the better pitching and this one goes to the Phillies.
They are better as a team and Valesquez has been consistently excellent this season, while Jenkins is hoping for a bounce back game.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Phillies ML
This one is likely to be extremely low scoring considering both teams can’t really score and the pitchers are both capable of pitching a good game.
