Why the Phillies can pay on the MLB linesPhiladelphia may have been caught looking ahead to this interleague series in getting outscored 16-6 in the last three games at Cincinnati. The Phillies had won three in a row prior to their losing streak, and they should be primed to rebound with All-Star Aaron Nola (12-3, 2.42 ERA) on the hill. The 25-year-old righty has not earned a win since July 9 but has not pitched poorly in his last two starts, allowing five runs and nine hits in 11 innings with three walks and 10 strikeouts. Nola is 4-3 on the road this year with a 2.86 ERA but has limited opposing batters to a .190 average in 11 outings away from home. Why the Red Sox can pay on the MLB linesBoston is the best team in baseball right now, and it is not even close. Whether the Red Sox can maintain this sizzling pace remains to be seen, but they are a force to be reckoned with for the time being.Opposing Nola will be former AL Cy Young Award winner David Price (11-6 http://www.diamondbacksfanproshop.com/au...med-jersey , 4.17), who is coming off one of his best starts of the season. Carlos Osorio/Associated PressThe 32-year-old southpaw blanked the Detroit Tigers for 6.1 innings on July 20, scattering four hits with one walk and five strikeouts. Price did throw 14 pitches in a suspended game on Wednesday to follow it up, but that should not affect him here.Smart betting pickBoston has dominated interleague play over the past year, going 18-2 in its last 20 games against NL foes. Coincidentally, one of the two losses came at Philadelphia 1-0 on June 15, 2017.

Atlanta’s magic number for winning the National League East was reduced to four.Article continues below ...Veteran right-hander Julio Teheran (9-8, 3.97) will start for Atlanta (85-68) opposite Pivetta as the Braves try to put the Phillies (78-74) on the verge of elimination.Philadelphia used seven relievers after slumping starter Vince Velasquez pitched just three innings to start the series, and the bullpen cracked late, giving up the tie-breaking run in the seventh and four more runs in the eighth as the Phillies fell to 6-12 in September.Pivetta hasn’t won since Aug. 7 and has lost his last four decisions, pitching just 13 1/3 innings in his three September outings.On a more positive note, though, the 25-year-old Pivetta beat the Braves three times as a rookie in 2017 while posting a 2.12 ERA and was solid against them early this season http://www.diamondbacksfanproshop.com/au...ray-jersey , going 1-1 with a 3.43 ERA in four starts.The Phillies also continue to point to Pivetta’s swing-and-miss stuff. He fanned eight in five innings against Miami last Sunday, but was done in by a two-run homer from Pete O’Brien.“I think the only hard-hit ball that comes to mind for me was the home run to O’Brien,” manager Gabe Kapler said afterward. “Other than that, the curveball was working well, the fastball was working well, had a lot of life to it, obviously, getting tons of swings and misses on it. Looked like he was going to roll and just ran into a little bit of a buzz saw there.”Teheran had appeared back on track after an up-and-down season until he had a shaky outing in a loss to Washington last Saturday.The two-time All-Star allowed six walks and was pulled after four innings despite giving up just three hits and two runs while striking out seven.Walks have been Teheran’s downfall all season. Opponents are batting just .198 against him, but he has surrendered 79 walks in 163 1/3 innings.The 27-year-old from Colombia made his fourth consecutive start on Opening Day for the Braves this season, but his spot in a potential playoff rotation is far from a certainty.“I haven’t thought about that Jeff Mathis Jersey , but it is what it is,” Teheran said after the loss to the Nationals. “We still need to finish strong. I’ve got a couple outings to go. I’ve been feeling good my last couple outings. It’s getting there. You’re going to have difficult games. But I feel like I’ve been doing better now.”Teheran was 1-0 with a 4.91 ERA in three April starts against the Phillies and is 9-6 with a 3.55 ERA in 22 career games, including 21 starts, against them.Outfielder-first baseman Rhys Hoskins is 5-for-10 with three doubles against Teheran, while first baseman Justin Bour went 7-for-18 with a homer while with Miami before joining the Phillies.Braves center fielder Ender Inciarte has gone 8-for-17 against Pivetta, but first baseman Freddie Freeman is just 2-for-15.
