Preview: Aaron Nola, Phillies go for third straight win tonight at home against the Atlanta Braves
The Philadelphia Phillies will look to keep things rolling tonight after taking game one of four against the Atlanta Braves last night at Citizens Bank Park.
Aaron Nola (9-12, 3.38 ERA) gets the ball for Philadelphia, going up against Jake Odorizzi (5-5, 4.04 ERA).
Last night’s win was a big one on the national FOX broadcast in what felt like a playoff atmosphere down at The Bank. The trio of Ranger Suarez, Zach Eflin, and Jose Alvarado held the Braves lineup to just six total hits on the night, restoring order to the a Fightins pitching staff that has struggled over the past few weeks.
Ranger Suarez dominated Atlanta early on, going six innings and striking out four, while Eflin and Alvarado held down the last three innings to earn a gutsy 1-0 win.
With both the Phillies and Brewers winning last night, the magic number for Red October currently sits at 10 games with 13 to play. Even after a tough stretch, the Phillies remain in control of their own destiny.
