Phillies dropped two games in a doubleheader against the Blue Jays on Thursday after commanding a lead early in both of the games.
Braves on the other hand, are coming off a day of rest before opening a three-game set at home against Philly.
Philadelphia has been great at hitting this season, but where they have their faults is with their rotation. Zack Wheeler and Aaron Nola are 5-1 combined while the rest of the rotation is 1-5 on the year.
Bryce Harper has been tearing the cover off the ball hitting over .350 on the season. JT Realmuto leads the ball club in home runs with eight on the season. As a team, the fightin’s are averaging 5.58 runs per game which ranks 1st in the MLB.
Aaron Nola will be back on the mound for the Phils in this matchup going for his third win of the season. Nola is 2-1 with a 2.05 ERA in five starts this season.
Braves reclaimed first place in the NL East today without even playing as the Phillies dropped two games in a doubleheader. They have the opportunity to take a commanding lead over the NL East if they can claim a couple wins in this series.
Dansby Swanson is showing the world why he was a first overall pick as he’s coming into form this season. Swanson leads the Braves with 16 RBI’s and is also the club leader in average with .303. As a team, Atlanta is averaging 4.96 runs per game which ranks 10th in the MLB.
Max Fried is back on the mound and is now the suedo ace thanks to the season-ending injury to Mike Soroka. Fried is 3-0 with a 1.24 ERA in five starts in 2020.
Free Philadelphia Phillies vs. Atlanta Braves MLB Prediction:
Phillies seem like they can only get a win when Nola or Wheeler is on the mound and they are lucky he starts on Friday so they can try to catch up in the NL East race. They fell out of first place on Thursday and will try to reclaim that position on Friday. Give me the Phillies to get out early on lefty Max Fried.
