Phillies vs Braves

Citizens Bank Park

1:35PM EDT on CSN

Jake Thompson (1-4) 7.86 ERA

PHILLIES: Thompson struggled mightily in his first four starts, going 1-3 with a 9.78 ERA. But then he allowed two runs in seven innings last week against the Nationals, giving him a boost of confidence heading into the season’s final month.

Julio Teheran (4-9) 3.12 ERA

BRAVES: Teheran snapped a string of eight straight winless starts in Tuesday’s 7-3 victory over the Padres. He looked more like himself in his third outing off the disabled list, allowing two runs on six hits while striking out eight.
