Citizens Bank Park and the Philadelphia Phillies host the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday.
For lack of a better word the Atlanta Braves have fallen off the map and I don’t know what they will do as the year nears an end. Once again the Braves had nothing going in a 5-0 loss at Philadelphia on Tuesday for their 11th loss in 12 contests. Ryan Weber took the loss with two runs plated over six frames with Daniel Burawa gave up three more. The Bravos managed seven hits and three walks with all their hits being singles. The Braves send Julio Teheran to the hill for his third start of the year against the Phillies. Teheran was outstanding in a 5-2 loss at Washington with a run allowed on five hits and four BB in six frames.

The Philadelphia Phillies might want to finish the season strong but they have been heading in the wrong direction. The slumping Phillies had dropped seven of eight before Aaron Nola shut down the Braves offense. Nola tossed seven scoreless frames to up his record to 6-2. The Phils logged nine hits with Odubel Herrera breaking open a 2-0 game with a three run homer while Cesar Hernandez scored twice.David Buchanan is being recalled from the minors to oppose the Braves on Wednesday. On the season Buchanan has gone 2-7 with an ERA of nine over ten starts.
Atlanta are 0-8 in their last 8 Wednesday games and are 12-40 in their last 52 road games while going 13-41 in their last 54 overall. The over is 7-1 in Philadelphia’s last 8 vs. National League East and the Phillies are 3-9 in their last 12 Wednesday games while going 3-9 in their last 12 home games. If the Braves are going to win one Teheran has the potential but Atlanta is a black hole for betting…
