Braves vs. Phillies MLB Pick – September 12th

The Philadelphia Phillies were unable to put two wins last night. After defeating the Braves by a close score of night, the Phillies were not able to parlay that into a winning streak. The Atlanta bullpen and dallas Keuchel put a wall up to the Phillies’ bats. The Phillies generated only 5 hits on this day.
Keuchel allowed 3 hits in 6 innings, whereas the bullpen allowed just two. Atlanta are going to be a more team in the postseason when their full potential is met by the spinning. Fried, Soroka, and Teheran is going to be tough to match. Everybody else in the NL East and the Phillies found out just how hard it’s to top the Braves.
Atlanta enter Thursday with a listing of 91-56 plus a 9.5-game lead to the branch. Having a strong second-half at September, the Braves could have a chance at grabbing the Dodgers to the No. 1 seed in the National League. The Dodgers appeared way too laid back last night, after clinching the NL West. They let the Orioles to blow them out. The Dodgers were much even better off not showing up.
I don’t know the whole popping bottles due to winning a championship, however. It’s rather meaningless, especially for a team like the Dodgers where it is World Series or bust. In any case, the Dodgers did not take last night critically and it ended up resulting in a loss.
Do this many occasions down the stretch and the Braves might sneak up on them and steal the National League. Julio Teheran is up in the turning to the Braves, although the Phillies will opt for Drew Smyly. Head below for our free Braves vs. Phillies pick.
Betting odds offered by
Drew Smyly is coming from a functionality against the Mets at Queens. He allowed only 4 hits and no runs over 7 innings of work. Prior to that match, he was sharp with 4 strikes and 1-run permitted against the Reds. There is certainly nothing wrong with efforts like this. What is wrong is he has been in his career. Sure, Smyly is capable of putting games like this. But there his side in which he appears useless out there.
The last time Smyly had two standout performances, he was hammered to the mountain in his second trip. Smyly allowed no runs and 4 hits contrary to the Giants to allow 5 earned runs contrary to the White Sox on August 4th. He jumped to follow up that with 9 earned runs allowed in his two starts. His most recent work doesn’t reflect his figures using the Phillies and Rangers in 2019. The was a wreck with all the Rangers, posting an 8.42 ERA in 13 appearances on the bulge. He has been able to deliver his ERA down together with the Phillies, but it still stands at 6.20 on the season.
Smyly hasn’t cared for pitching in Philadelphia. He’s been good on the street, but fighting in Citizens Bank Park. Smyly has posted an ERA of 2.60 on the street, though that amount increases to a 5.56 ERA at home in Philadelphia. In his past 10.2 innings at house, Smyly has allowed 9 earned runs. In his last 15.2 innings, he’s allowed 14 earned runs, so it has not been a great style for him in front of the home audience.
When there’s any caution within this game because of him, it’s to stay away from Josh Donaldson. He has been mauled by donaldson for a .474 BA and 3 home runs in 19 at-bats. Teheran heads into Washington feeling great, having submitted an ERA of 1.50 ERA and 0.94 WHIP in his past 3 games. He’s allowed just 3 earned runs in his last 25 innings on the mountain. Note that Teheran has enabled 2 or fewer runs in 11 out of the last 13 outings. Thursday night the Braves are in a position to notch another victory.
