    Philadelphia Phillies (62-74) @ Atlanta Braves (72-65) 9/1-9/3




    @





    Philadelphia Phillies @ Atlanta Braves





    Monday, 9/1 1:00 PM

    Cole Hamels, LHP (7-6, 2.59 ERA/3.04 FIP/3.19 xFIP)vs Julio Teheran, RHP (13-9, 2.90 ERA/3.55 FIP/3.77 xFIP)



    Hamels left the mound frustrated Tuesday in a victory over the Nationals, but he has had little to be upset about this season. He is having one of the best years of his career, although his record doesn't show it.


    Since allowing more than five runs in consecutive starts, Teheran has surrendered a total of three runs over his past three starts. He's allowed one earned run or less in each of his three starts against the Phillies this year.

    Tuesday, 9/2 7:10 PM

    Kyle Kendrick, RHP (7-11, 4.97 ERA/4.63 FIP/4.40 xFIP)vs Mike Minor, LHP (6-8, 4.70 ERA/4.35 FIP/3.64 xFIP)



    Kendrick allowed four runs in six innings Wednesday against the Nationals. He has a 10.00 ERA (30 earned runs in 27 innings) in the first inning this season, which is the highest mark in baseball since 2011.


    When struggles led to a skipped start in early August, Minor regained a feel for his pitches and now has replaced his inconsistent changeup with a more effective sinker he's used to post a 2.22 ERA in his past four starts.


    Wednesday, 9/3 12:10 PM

    David Buchanan, RHP (6-7, 4.03 ERA/4.23 FIP/3.97 xFIP)vs Ervin Santana, RHP (13-7, 3.53 ERA/3.29 FIP/3.35 xFIP)



    Buchanan pitched very well Friday against the Mets, allowing four hits, one run, one walk and striking out three in six innings. He threw just 64 pitches in those six innings but was lifted for a pinch-hitter in a tie game.



    The veteran is 3-1 over his last five starts, with a 3.26 ERA, and has been an innings-eater all season, having pitched at least six in 23 of 26 starts. He's 2-1 in four starts vs. the Phillies -- 1-1, 4.50 at Turner Field.

    A tricky series here. Got two Brave killers going on the hill and two afternoon games. Nats got the dodgers so..it would be nice if we scrap out a sweep.

    And big ups to Alex Wood. Said it before but he's truly my favorite pitcher on this staff. It's sad how he literally has to pitch a shut out just to get a win. 8 IP, 12 K's..wow. Baller.

    Phillies have been rolling lately. We have too for that matter. We need this series badly.

    Just 7 pitches for JT to get through the 4th...it's definitely welcomed.

    Cole hamels has already walked 4...and we have already left 14 men on base. J-hey has stole 3 bases walked twice, Boni has gotten on base, Freeman has gotten on base....but J-up and CHris have left 8 men on base. Completely killing us.

    We've gotten our chances..as usual we've just sucked it up.

    And again, Hamels is only around 60 something pitches...he can easily still go 7 with some of our ******** at-bats we're putting up.

    Laird alone is saving this bottom of the 4th...working hamels at least.

    Laird is hurt up there...don't think he'll be finishing this one.

    At least was able to get Hamels over 70.

    JT is sharp up there...but naturally he's losing while Hamels is "effectively wild."

    This has one of those makings of a shut out loss for us..

    After an 11 pitch at-bat from Brown...Ruiz and Asche go down on like 3 pitches combined..so that helps keep JT's efficiency.

    IT would help if emilio would stop swinging at that head high pitch..no chance of hitting it. 2nd time he's struck out on it..

    Good news, Hamels is over 90 through 5..bad news...he's still got a no hitter..and you can damn well bet they are going to leave him as long as he can go to get it. He honestly shouldn't be able to finish 7 but we're the braves soooo..yea.
