The Atlanta Braves vs. the Phillies should be a classic today-Thursday with NL East title on the line. Media release: The Braves and Phillies are two National League East rivals chasing the same prize this week at Truist Park.
The teams open a three-game series on Tuesday night in Atlanta, with the Braves holding a 2 1/2-game lead in their quest for a fourth consecutive NL East title. The Phillies, meanwhile, have their backs against the wall as they try to win their first division title since 2011. The Braves’ magic number is at five, meaning any combination of five Braves wins and Phillies losses would give Atlanta the title. FanGraphs gives the Braves an 87.3 percent chance to win the division; the Phillies have a 12.7 percent chance.
The earliest the Braves can clinch is Thursday, but only if they sweep the series. The Phillies, on the other hand, need to sweep the series to give themselves a fighting chance. Because even if they win twice in Atlanta, they will be two back in the loss column with only three regular-season games to play.
- Tonight at 7:20: Phillies’ RHP Zack Wheeler (14-9, 2.79 ERA) vs. RHP Charlie Morton (13-6, 3.53 ERA). Wheeler is an NL Cy Young Award candidate, leading the Majors in innings, strikeouts, complete games, shutouts, batters faced and WAR, according to Baseball-Reference. Morton has posted a 2.95 ERA over his past 18 starts. He has also allowed three or fewer runs in three of four starts against Philadelphia so far this year.
- This week: Home vs. Phillies through Thursday; all games 7:20 p.n.. Friday-Sunday: Home vs. Mets, 7:20 p.m. Friday and Saturday; 3:20 p.m. Sunday.
