The Atlanta Braves look to win their second series of the 2016 season, as they take on the Philadelphia Phillies for the third and final time tonight.

The Braves take the field after earning five runs off of ten hits in their 5 – 1 win last night. In an effort to continue this momentum, the home team is expected to send out the23-year-old right hander Aaron Blair, while the Phillies will rely on Vince Velasquez to drive the team into second place within the NL East Division.
The last time Velasquez took the field, it was against the Miami Marlins who were able defeat the young up-and-comer with four runs on seven hits, in just six innings.
Meanwhile, the Braves will test their luck with a winless Blair, who has yet to face the Phillies so far in his 0-2 major league career.
What to Expect in Tonight’s Game
- Although Blair surrendered three runs in the 7 – 2 loss against the Diamondbacks, a lot of the pressure he faced can be attributed to the number of defensive miscues offered by his surrounding teammates. If the outfield is able to protect their respective spaces, fans can expect to witness the first break-out performance of the rookie’s career.
- Blair is currently considered to be Major League Baseball’s 52nd-best prospect of the 2016 season.
- Every single one of the Phillies’ past seven wins have been earned by only one run. If the Braves’ defense can keep Philadelphia’s power hitters at bay, their chances for winning increase significantly.
- Velasquez has successfully struck out 44 batters in only 37 innings so far this season.
