The Philadelphia Phillies begin a three-game series against he Atlanta Braves.

The Philadelphia Phillies look to extend their winning streak to five games as they head down to the Peach State to start a three-game series against the Atlanta Braves.

Starting for the Phillies is Cole Hamels (11-4, 3.23 ERA), making his first start after signing his record six year, $144 million contract extension. Hamels was roughed up a bit in his last start against the San Fransisco Giants, giving up 10 hits, five earned runs and three home runs in 7-2/3 innings of work.

The Braves will counter with Ben Sheets (2-0, 0.00 ERA), who has impressed in his first two starts since 2010. Sheets has only given up seven hits in 12 innings while striking out 11. Sheets missed part of the 2010 and all of the 2011 season while recovering from massive elbow surgery.
