Flowers powers Braves

Atlanta held on for a 3-1 road win Wednesday night at Philadelphia to improve to 91-56 overall and 44-28 on the road. Tyler Flowers provided the offense as he finished 1-for-4 with a home run and three RBIs. Matt Joyce was 1-for-3 with a walk and a run scored. Ozzie Albies ended the contest 2-for-5.

Julio Teheran will start tonight for the Braves as he enters with a 10-8 record, 3.31 ERA and 1.29 WHIP plus 154 strikeouts over 163 1/3 innings. 

Harper reaches base three times

Philadelphia fell by a score of 3-1 at home Wednesday night to drop to 75-70 overall and 42-33 at home. Bryce Harper paced the Phillies as he went 1-for-2 with two walks and a run scored. Scott Kingery was 0-for-4 with the lone RBI. Cesar Hernandez finished 1-for-3 plus a walk. Zach Eflin took the loss as he gave up three unearned runs on three hits with five strikeouts and three walks over 3 2/3 innings.

MLB Betting Trends

Atlanta

The Braves are 58-27 in their last 85 games overall. Atlanta is 16-7 in the last 23 Teheran starts.

Philadelphia

The Phillies are 5-1 in the last six Smyly starts. Philadelphia is 7-3 in its last 10 games following a loss.

Prediction:

While the Braves are basically a lock to make the playoffs, the Phillies' chances are only at 3.6 percent. Needless to say, they need a win here. Smyly has rough overall numbers, but he's definitely pitched better with the Phillies than the Rangers. Teheran has had a pretty good season, but I like the plus money on the hosts. Take Philly on getaway day for the Braves.
