Game Thread: Phillies vs Braves 5/20/16

I can smell first place

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports


Phillies (24-17) at Braves (10-30)

Citizens Bank Park

7:05PM EDT on CSN

Aaron Nola (43-2) 2.89 ERA

PHILLIES: Nola has been nothing if not consistent in 2016. He’s gone at least six innings in all but one start and allowed three runs or less in all but two. In his latest gem, he spun seven innings of one-run ball against the Reds.

Matt Wisler (1-3) 3.14 ERA

BRAVES: Wisler has looked more like a front-line starter as he has pitched into the eighth inning in each of his past three starts. The promising right-hander will be facing the Phillies for the second time in 10 days.
