After the Philadelphia Phillies had a stunning visit to the Atlanta Braves doubles with a total score of 13-2 on Sunday, the Philadelphia Phillies will turn to Ace Aaron Nola to change their luck in Monday’s four-game final.
Nola, who is 0-1 with a 3.97 ERA, will make his third start of the season. Wednesday against the New York Yankees was remarkably great, reaching a career-high level with 12 strikes in six innings.
Nolai has an impressive 10-5 career score with an ERA of 2.94 out of 18 starts against the Braves.
After a stellar 2018 season in which Nola finished third in the Cy Young National League vote, he slipped a bit last season. Using two starts this season, it seems that Nola is restoring the shape of the ’18 season.
“I felt like I had games like that last year,” Nola said.
“I think the main thing was that my changes were quite consistent. That was what I had in ’18 and a couple of games last year, but I think it was a different element. ”
Phillies manager Joe Girard said he had always fallen in love with Nolu before coming to Philadelphia. Watching his ace perform first-hand only reinforced that view.
“He was excellent against a very difficult team,” Girardi said of Nola’s game against the Yankees. “It’s a shame it was just his second start and we had to kick him out. But he was as good as I saw him.”
Nola will need more offensive support than the Phillies provided in sweeping the double garden. In the second game, first of all, he fought hard in the attack with four hits, two by Rice Hoskin, with the result 8-0. Blue Jackets are moving forward with

Freddie Freeman also added three second-game wins to the rising Braves, who are looking for their third fair victory.
The Braves will pass the ball to southpaw Sean Newcomb, who is 0-1 with a 6.57 ERA.
This will be Newcomb’s fourth departure. On Wednesday, Newomb gave up five wins and two runs in a 4 2/3 game, beating the Toronto Blue Jays in Atlanta 2-1.
Newcom, who is 2-1 with ERA 3.16 in 11 games against the Phillies, including four starts, has yet to miss five innings in the game this season.
“Obviously I want to go out and go over five (innings) and start better, but of course there has been progress,” Newomb said.
“Drift is improving, and these were my first three starts in a year and a half. It was a small correction. But I think I started clicking again to use the whole repertoire, “said Newomb.
Brave manager Brian Snitker believes his southern paw will continue to improve.
“It was gratifying from Newcastle,” Snitker said. “It simply came to our notice then. So hopefully he will come up with something. “
