Phillies Vs. Braves Game Preview: Philadelphia Tries For Series Sweep Of Atlanta

The Philadelphia Phillies will be aiming for a three-game series sweep of the Atlanta Braves Sundays, as the two NL East division rivals square off at Turner Field (5:05 p.m. ET on PHL17). The Braves (74-59) will be trying to avoid their fifth loss in five games, while the Phillies (64-69) are trying to extended its three-game winning streak to four.

To do so, the Phillies turn to Cole Hamels (14-6, 2.99 ERA) who will look to extended his current unbeaten streak to four games, as he suffered a no decision to the Cincinnati Reds in his last start.

Meanwhile, the Braves turn to Paul Maholm (11-9, 3.44 ERA) who will be looking to continue his solid season.
