Philadelphia Phillies DFS Notes
Aaron Nola surrendered six runs over six innings on Thursday in a win over the Pirates. This was a weird one, folks. Nola gave up six hits, including a pair of home runs, but managed to pick up a victory after the Phillies stormed back with 12 unanswered runs after the third inning. He recorded eight strikeouts and only handed out one free pass. The 28-year-old righty will carry a bloated 4.64 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 219/37 K/BB ratio across 174 2/3 innings (31 starts) into a road tilt against the Braves on Wednesday night in his final regular season outing.

The 27-year-old right-hander earned his 13th win of the season and lowered his ERA to 3.12 over 158 2/3 innings. He'll take on the Phillies in Atlanta for his final start of the regular season next week.
