Phillies have now dropped three in a row and have fallen back 3.5 games in the NL East race.
Braves, on the other hand, have a 3.5 game lead as the Marlins and Phillies are tied for second place in the East.
Aaron Nola got clobbered in his start on Friday for four runs in three innings after giving up a couple of long balls to Travis D’Arnaud and Marcel Ozuna
Bryce Harper sat on Friday but will be back in the lineup on Saturday as it was just for rest. Phillies are the second-best team in the MLB at scoring runs averaging over 5.43 runs per game.
Zack Wheeler will be on the mound for the Phils looking for his team-leading fourth win of the season. Wheeler is 3-0 with a 2.81 ERA to start the year.
Braves bats came to life on Friday doing damage against Aaron Nola.
Marcell Ozuna has been a great offseason acquisition for the Braves as he leads the team in home runs with eight on the year after adding another on Friday off Nola. Braves are averaging 4.96 runs per game as a team which ranks 9th in the league.
Robbie Erlin is still in search of his first win as he will take the mound on Saturday. Erlin is 0-0 on the season with a 5.14 ERA. He filling in for the injured Mike Soroka which is some big shoes to fill for the runner up rookie of the year.
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 once again and looks like Wheeler is on the mound tonight so I have to back the Phils. Bryce Harper will be back in the lineup and he is giving the NL MVP a run for their money this season as he leads the team in RBI’s and average so he’s stating his case.
