The Philadelphia Phillies have played well at times with the season winding down but consistency has still been elusive. The Phillies want to play well over the closing days of 2017 and took a step in that direction with a 2-0 victory at the division rival Atlanta Braves on Sunday afternoon that put an end to a three game skid. Phils starter Nick Pivetta upped his record to 7-10 with five hits and a base on balls through six innings of work before three relievers tossed an inning each. Philadelphia managed seven hits and a pair of bases on balls with Maikel Franco blasting a solo homer while Aaron Altherr doubled in Cesar Hernandez. The Philadelphia Phillies send Aaron Nola to the bump for the series opening start against the Washington Nationals. Nola has won back to back outings after a 6-2 win versus the San Francisco Giants with both runs given up on five hits and a pair of BB over seven frames.
