Braves vs Phillies Betting Outlook

The Angels jumped on the Braves for five runs in the top of the first inning Sunday and Atlanta never recovered. Ronald Acuna Jr. had two hits in a losing effort and drove in his team’s only run.

The Braves got some bad news before the game when they learned outfielder Adam Duvall will miss the remainder of the season as he requires surgery to repair a torn tendon sheath in his left wrist. First baseman Mike Ford was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett.

Fried is having another fine season for the Braves. Suarez, though, is quietly pitching better than he has all season and makes the Phillies an intriguing underdog choice.
