The Atlanta Braves and the Philadelphia Phillies will both be gunning for a victory on Sunday when they meet at Citizens Bank Park.

The Braves will pin their hopes on the pitching of right hander R.A. Dickey in this game. Dickey has a 6-7 record and a 4.24 ERA this season.

It’ll be Vince Velasquez toeing the rubber for the Phillies in this contest. Right hander Velasquez is 2-6 with a 5.49 ERA so far this season.

Dickey has provided stability to Atlanta’s rotation, but the 42-year-old knuckleballer looks to rebound after losing his past two decisions. He lasted only 3 2/3 innings Monday at Arizona, surrendering four runs on five hits with five walks, five days after the Chicago Cubs tagged him for four runs on seven hits. Dickey had been masterful in the weeks leading up to the All-Star break, including a win over the Phillies on June 8 in which he allowed one run with eight strikeouts in seven innings.

Velasquez missed six weeks with a right elbow strain and returned after the All-Star break, going 0-1 with a 5.00 ERA with a no-decision at Miami on July 18 and a loss to Houston on Monday. The 25-year-old lasted only three innings against Houston, allowing four runs on six hits with three walks – giving up two homers. Velasquez is 0-1 in three career starts against the Braves, giving up eight earned runs on 18 hits in 19 innings with 18 strikeouts.

Oddsmakers currently have the Phillies listed as 125-moneyline favorites versus the Braves, while the game’s total is sitting at 9.

Despite owning the worst record in the majors, the Philadelphia Phillies seem to save their best play for the National League East-rival Atlanta Braves. The Phillies rallied from two runs down in the late innings Saturday and knocked off the visiting Braves 4-3 in the 11th, giving Philadelphia its seventh victory in nine tries against Atlanta going into Sunday’s home contest.

Philadelphia center fielder Odubel Herrera tied the game with a solo homer in the ninth, and is batting 12-for-25 with two homers and four RBIs in his past eight games. The Braves have lost nine of their past 12 games in Philadelphia and are 1-6 in their past seven contests overall. Atlanta right fielder Nick Markakis is 4-for-7 through the first two games of the series, and is five hits shy of becoming the 10th active player to reach 2,000 career hits. The Braves bullpen allowed three runs on six hits in 5 2/3 innings Saturday, its ERA swelling to 6.55 in July.

In their last action, Philadelphia was a 4-3 winner on the road against the Braves. Bettors on Philadelphia at -113 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (7) sent UNDER bettors home happy as well.
