    Atlanta Braves (8-4) @ Philadelphia Phillies (6-6) 4/14-4/17



    @



    Atlanta Braves @Philadelphia Phillies



    Monday, 4/14 7:00 PM

    Ervin Santana, RHP (1-0, 0.00 ERA/1.68 FIP/2.35 xFIP) vs Roberto Hernandez, RHP (1-0, 4.35 ERA/3.57 FIP/2.09 xFIP)



    Santana gave up only three hits in eight scoreless innings during his Braves debut, a 4-3 win against the Mets on Wednesday. His first 20 pitches against New York were strikes, setting a Major League record.


    He allowed seven hits, four runs, one walk and one home run Wednesday in a loss to Milwaukee. He struck out nine Brewers, picking up eight with his changeup. The nine strikeouts were the second most of his career.
    Tuesday, 4/15 7:05 PM

    David Hale, RHP (0-0, 2.89 ERA/4.15 FIP/5.30 xFIP) vs Cliff Lee, LHP (2-1, 5.50 ERA/2.41 FIP/2.95 xFIP)



    Hale struggled to command his sinker as he allowed four earned runs and lasted just 4 1/3 innings against the Mets on Thursday. His sinker could prove to be a valuable weapon in the offensive-friendly Citizens Bank Park.


    Lee allowed eight hits, three runs and struck out eight in six innings Thursday against the Brewers. Lee didn't get the run support he needed, and therefore had to take an early exit as the Phillies needed a pinch-hitter.

    Wednesday, 4/16 7:05 PM

    Julio Teheran, RHP (1-1, 2.84 ERA/4.71 FIP/5.10 xFIP) vs David Buchanan, RHP (0-0, 0.00 ERA/0.00 FIP/0.00 xFIP)



    Despite struggling to get a feel for his slider, Teheran has notched three straight quality starts to open 2014. Teheran owns a 5.79 ERA against the Phillies in four career outings that include three starts.


    4/13/2014: Buchanan was removed from his Triple-A start after just one inning on Sunday, which suggests that he could be A.J. Burnett's replacement this Wednesday, Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Thursday, 4/17 1:05 PM

    Alex Wood, LHP (2-1, 1.89 ERA/4.39 FIP/3.33 xFIP) vs Jonathan Pettibone, RHP (0-0, 1.80 ERA/4.38 FIP/2.86 xFIP)



    Wood has eclipsed the 100-pitch mark in back-to-back starts but managed to give up only three earned runs in 12 innings between the two outings. He has surrendered leadoff homers in the first inning of two of his three starts.


    Pettibone, who opened the season with Triple-A Lehigh Valley, made his 2014 debut Saturday in a victory over the Marlins, allowing two runs (one earned run) on eight hits and one walk while striking out five in five innings.

    Tough matchup with Hale and Lee but I'm sure glad we missed the return of Cole Hamels. He is one pitcher I hate facing and wish was a Brave.

    I'll take series wins all year. And sweeps angainst the Nats. And I was just being facetious in my last reply to yours about being first about BJ. I wasn't mad. Looks like we may have both been wrong. Maybe Chipper worked his magic on another hitter. He needs to be hired on as a consultant. Just hang out at the home games and keep an eye out on everyone.

    BJ has looked much better the last couple of games. If someone else gets hot while J. Upton and Freeman is still sizzling, we could go on another one of our patented 12-1 run.

    Is it just me or has EOB stopped swinging at every off-speed pitch in the dirt? This would be great.

    Gattis goes about every other at-bat, one taking the off-speed, away pitches, one hacking at them. Overall, he looked good over the weekend though. I can't say enough good things about B.J.'s swing the last half week.

    Back-to-back-to-back. Been awhile since we did that.
