Camargo leads effort in loss
Atlanta fell by a count of 6-5 Tuesday night at Philadelphia to drop to 90-56 overall and 43-28 on the road. Johan Camargo led the way for the Braves offensively as he went 2-for-3 with a home run, a double, a walk and two runs scored. Freddie Freeman was 3-for-4 wiht a run and an RBI. Ronald Acuna Jr. ended the contest 3-for-5 with a run scored. Max Fried took the loss as he allowed five earned runs on seven hits with five strikeouts and one walk over five innings. Dallas Keuchel will start tonight for Atlanta as he enters with a 7-5 record, 3.47 ERA and 1.32 WHIP plus 73 strikeouts over 90 2/3 innings.
Dickerson hits pair of HRs
Philadelphia broke a 4-4 tie in the bottom of the third inning and held on for a 6-5 victory Tuesday night at home against Atlanta. Corey Dickerson led the Phillies offense as he finished 2-for-4 with two home runs and three RBIs. Bryce Harper ended the contest 2-for-4 with a solo homer. J.T Realmuto and Scott Kingery both ended the contest 1-for-3 with a solo home run plus a walk. Blake Parker picked up the win in relief as he gave up one hit with four strikeouts and no walks over two scoreless frames. Hector Neris notched the save as he struck out one in a perfect inning of work. Zach Eflin gets the start tonight for Philly as he comes in with an 8-11 record, 4-31 ERA and 1.34 WHIP plus 112 strikeouts over 140 innings pitched.
MLB Betting Trends
The Braves are 5-0 in their last five Wednesday games. Atlanta is 5-0 in the last five Keuchel starts.
The Phillies are 2-7 in the last nine Eflin starts. Philadelphia is 1-4 in its last five games versus a left-handed starter.
Keuchel is a frustrating matchup for any team looking to launch home runs as he is a heavy groundball pitcher. With the Phillies playing inconsistent baseball much of the season and using their top bullpen guys last night, I think Keuchel outduels the also inconsistent Eflin here as the first-place Braves return to the winning column.
