The Atlanta Braves and the Philadelphia Phillies will meet on the field at Citizens Bank Park on Monday in a battle of division rivals.

The Braves will trot Mike Foltynewicz out to the mound in this one. Right hander Foltynewicz has a 9-5 record and a 3.82 ERA this season.

Meanwhile, it’ll be Nick Pivetta who starts for the Phillies. Right hander Pivetta is 3-6 with a 5.73 ERA so far this season.

Foltynewicz has established himself as Atlanta’s ace in his third season with the Braves, matching his career high in wins while shaving nearly one-half run off his ERA from a season ago. Since the start of June the 25-year-old is 6-0 with a 3.33 ERA in 10 starts, surrendering two runs or fewer seven times as the Braves are 9-1 in those outings. Foltynewicz struck out nine in six innings as Atlanta beat Arizona on Tuesday.

Pivetta earned his first major-league victory against Atlanta in his fifth career start, giving up three runs on six hits over five innings on June 5. But the 24-year-old rookie has struggled at times since, giving up 11 homers in 51 innings while posting a 6.00 ERA. He surrendered five runs on six hits in six innings of a loss to Houston on Tuesday, striking out seven while issuing only one walk.

Oddsmakers currently have the Braves listed as 121-money line favorites versus the Phillies, while the game’s total is sitting at 8½.

The Atlanta Braves are happy to wrap up a four-game series at the Philadelphia Phillies on Monday, given how they have struggled against the team with the fewest victories in the majors. The Phillies made it three wins in a row in the series Sunday by earning a 2-1 victory and, while Philadelphia is 38-64 on the season, it has defeated Atlanta eight times in 10 tries in 2017.

The Phillies are playing their best baseball of the season, averaging 5.8 runs per game in the past 11 contests, and getting Freddy Galvis’ walk-off single to right Sunday one night after Ty Kelly game-winning single in the 11th. The Braves, who conclude a three-city, 11-game road trip Monday, have stranded 29 runners through the first three games of the series. Atlanta dropped to 1-7 in its past eight games and the offense is anemic, averaging just 3.3 runs per game in that stretch while scoring more than three runs twice. The Braves are 3-10 in their past 13 games at Philadelphia dating back to May 2016, with four losses there this season coming by one run.

Last time out for Philadelphia, they were a 2-1 winner as they battled the Braves on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Phillies at -133 were rewarded, while the 3 combined runs moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.

Last time out for Atlanta, they were a 2-1 loser as they battled the Phillies on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Phillies at -133 were rewarded, while the 3 combined runs moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.
