Phillies vs. Braves game thread, 9/20

Atlanta goes for the sweep in game three, with Julio Teheran matching up against Aaron Nola.

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

Well, the Atlanta Braves are one game away from sweeping the Philadelphia Phillies in this three-game set at Turner Field, and I still have no idea how to feel about that. Of course, it's always nice to beat National League East rivals, but at the same time No. 1 pick fever is raging and we all know who Atlanta's last No. 1 pick was.

Either way, it should be interesting to see what version of Julio Teheran we have on the mound today, and Aaron Nola should be throwing in this league for a long time. This was the pitching matchup I highlighted in our series preview, and I stand by that opinion now with the game about to start.

Let's do it.
