The Phillies will face a much better team in Atlanta than the previous 2 teams they’ve faced

The Phillies have have performed extremely well and a past 2 weeks but their opponents haven’t been that good, so it is hard to tell whether the Phillies were playing extra good or just good against bad teams.

The increase in offense was much welcomed because the Phillies started out near the bottom of the MLB in that category. On team batting average the Phillies are in 21st place out of the 30 MLB teams which is an improvement from where they were.

With the six game streak,  the Phillies have found themselves in second place in the NL East at 9-5 right under the New York Mets. The Mets have been playing fantastic baseball and are sporting a 12-2 record so far in this early part of the season.

The Braves are just following the Phillies in the standings so far at 8-6 so far. The Braves wrapped up a series with the Cubs that had yesterday’s game rained out in Chicago. Atlanta started out strong, but has taken a couple of steps back lately.

Tonight’s starter for the Braves, Julio Teheran has started out with a high ERA in 3 starts, here is how his career has been with the Atlanta Braves:
