Atlanta Braves beat Phillies 2-1 behind solid start from Julio Teheran

Back off a cold road trip filled with delays and postponements, the Braves were back home at SunTrust Park to start the week. The Atlanta Braves (9-6) hosted the Philadelphia Phillies Monday night in National League East action, and a solid pitching performance turned out to be the difference in a 2-1 win for the […] Atlanta Braves beat Phillies 2-1 behind solid start from Julio Teheran - Tomahawk Take - Tomahawk Take - An Atlanta Braves Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Teheran outduels Nola, Braves take Game One over Phillies

Teheran outduels Nola, Braves take Game One over Phillies

Julio Teheran strikes out nine in his first win of the season Pitchers duels are always a blast to watch, and we were treated to one on Monday night in Atlanta. In his best start of 2018, Julio Teheran out-pitched a solid Aaron Nola and nailed down his first victory of the young season. His nine strikeouts were his highest total since October 2, 2016, when he K’d 12 against Detroit. Teheran had his breaking pitches working to his advantage, and threw strikes early in the count - getting 17 of 24 first pitch strikes. He managed to keep the bottom part of the Phillies’ lineup...

NO-dubel! Braves 2, Phillies 1

His mental gaffe in the fourth loomed large in this one We can talk about how good Aaron Nola was tonight. Six innings of two run baseball when it was clear he didn’t have his best stuff is why even when Jake Arrieta is fully ready, Nola will continue to be the ace of this staff. We can talk about how with runners on base, the team went cold, going 0 for 7 on the game. Compare that with their season average of .284/.388/.509 in those situations, and you can see how this game was very winnable. Instead, this game, unfortunately was decided by a mental gaffe by Odubel Herrera. Now, that...

Discuss here as the division rivals go toe-to-toe Nearly half of the 19 scheduled Braves-Phillies games in the 2018 season take place by the end of April. Tonight, we will gather around the campfire and behold the fourth. This evening’s game - and truthfully, the entire series - should be an interesting one. Not only is Julio Teheran vs. Aaron Nola an intriguing matchup, but each team is still trying to decipher which of the high points from the first 14 games are legitimate, and which will fall by the wayside as the season continues. Will the Braves continue to get unexpected...

Game Thread 4/16: Phillies at Braves

We’re back to Aaron Nola as the rotation churns through another cycle. In a rotation like the Phillies’, in which there are two legitimate frontline starters in Jake Arrieta and Aaron Nola, the other spots are filled by question marks and developing stories. It can feel like jumping from stone to stone across a river, but with the way this team has been playing over its six game win streak, it seems like far less of the case. Nick Pivetta looked strong and promising in his last start, Vince Velasquez managed to throw 33 pitches in the first two innings but still lasted almost seven...

Some Braves won’t keep hitting like this. Ozzie Albies just might

Fourteen games in, the Braves have been pretty good overall and very good when wielding the warclub. (Old-time sports writing for “swinging the bat.”) They entered Monday’s game against the Phillies second among National League teams in runs, batting average and slugging percentage; they were first in on-base percentage and OPS. Given that they ranked in the top 10 in two of those categories – batting average (fourth) and OBP (ninth) – last season, this constitutes improvement.

Phillies Stat Notes — early team stats show improvement in most areas

A quick review of where the Phillies rank in various team stats to date. The Phillies have the 4th best record in the NL so far, and while they rank higher in scoring runs (3rd) than in allowing them (7th), both of those rankings are skewed somewhat by the two blowouts they’ve been involved in (losing 15-2 to Atlanta, and beating the Marlins 20-1). Standings The Phils head to Atlanta leading the Braves by one game in the standings. By either runs per game (5.86), or wRC+ (119), the Braves have had the best offense in the NL so far in the early going. ...

Braves return home to host the Fightin’ Phils Starting tonight, the 8-6 Braves will host the 9-5 Phillies for their second series in three weeks. The two emerging teams have both played solid baseball since their first meeting, where a Peter Bourjos slide kept the Braves from sweeping the series. Despite a catastrophic bullpen implosion on Saturday afternoon, the Braves have played far better this season than many expected. After Sunday’s game was cancelled on account of inclement weather, the Braves closed the door on a 4-4 road trip against Colorado, Washington, and Chicago - three...
