The fans at Citizens Bank Park will be treated to a game between the Atlanta Braves and the Philadelphia Phillies when they take their seats on Wednesday.

The Braves will pin their hopes on the pitching of right hander Julio Teheran in this game. Teheran has a 8-11 record and a 4.96 ERA this season.

It’ll be Mark Leiter Jr. toeing the rubber for the Phillies in this contest. Right hander Leiter Jr. is 2-3 with a 3.86 ERA so far this season.

Once considered the ace of Atlanta’s rotation, Teheran seeks a strong finish to the most inconsistent season of his career. Two of his last three starts – both against Colorado – have provided glimmers of hope as the 26-year-old allowed only two runs and nine hits over 14 1/3 innings, but he surrendered four and eight versus the Reds in between those two outings. Teheran has struggled in two starts against the Phillies this season, losing both while allowing 13 runs and 14 hits in 9 2/3 frames.

Leiter carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning in his last start and exited with five strikeouts and one hit allowed in seven scoreless innings Sunday against Miami. He struggled in his previous outing eight days earlier, allowing eight runs – four earned – and seven hits across five frames in a loss at San Diego. The 26-year-old Leiter has bounced between the rotation and the bullpen, posting a 3.18 ERA in five starts compared to a 4.50 ERA in 16 relief appearances.

Oddsmakers currently have the Braves listed as 110-moneyline favorites versus the Phillies, while the game’s total is sitting at 9.

The Philadelphia Phillies get an extra opportunity Wednesday to continue beating up on the Atlanta Braves as they host a doubleheader after Tuesday’s scheduled contest was postponed due to rain. The rainout provided the Braves a one-day reprieve to try and figure out some way to beat their National League East rivals, who have defeated Atlanta in all eight meetings at Citizens Bank Park this season and 12 of their 14 overall matchups.

Philadelphia rookie Rhys Hoskins saw his home-run streak snapped at five games in Monday’s series-opening 6-1 victory but provided a go-ahead RBI double. The top of the Phillies’ lineup has feasted on Atlanta pitching this year, as leadoff hitter Cesar Hernandez is batting .333 while Freddy Galvis owns a .321 average. Atlanta is a major league-worst 12-27 since reaching .500 on July 17, thanks to a pitching staff that has allowed 55 home runs and 152 walks while posting a 5.18 ERA in that stretch. Brandon Phillips enters the doubleheader one hit shy of 2,000 for his career and looks to extend his hitting streak to 14 games.

Philadelphia won its last outing, a 6-1 result against the Braves on August 28. Bettors who backed the Phillies at -145 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (7) sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.
