The Phillies are 7-2 in Nola’s last nine Thursday starts and 1-4 in his last five versus the NL East. Philly is 0-5 in Nola’s last five starts and 0-5 in his last five on grass.

Meanwhile, the Braves are 35-16 in their last 51 in game three of a series and 13-3 in Soroka’s last 16 starts versus the NL East. Atlanta is 8-3 in Soroka’s last 11 home starts and 21-9 in his last 30 starts.

Nola had a bit of a rocky appearance the last time he faced the Braves, with four earned in 6.0 innings. He’s 0-2 in his last five starts but does have three quality outings in there.

As for Soroka, he’s got a couple of somewhat “blah” outings over his last three, but did post a quality start his last time up. This should be a great game and I’m staying away, but I’m leaning toward the Braves here.
