ATLANTA — The Phillies get the Braves in Philadelphia for three games to end the regular season David Price Jersey , but it may not matter after the teams’ four-game series at SunTrust Park starting Thursday night.The Braves’ magic number to win the National League East is down to six and that means they can clinch before the Phillies leave Atlanta on Sunday.The Braves (84-68) snapped a four-game losing streak by beating St. Louis 7-3 on Wednesday to remain 5 1/2 games ahead of Philadelphia (78-73).Article continues below ...The Phillies are 6-11 in September, but won their second straight series Wednesday by beating the New York Mets 4-0.The Braves are only 10-8 this month despite a recent six-game winning streak, but first baseman Freddie Freeman appears to be out of his funk.Freeman had a second straight three-hit game against the Cardinals and blasted his 23rd homer while driving in three runs.Freeman was an NL MVP candidate before he hit .195 with one homer and a .584 OPS over a 22-game stretch from Aug. 16-Sept. 7. Now it looks like he could be a difference-maker again.The All-Star goes into the Philadelphia series batting .405 with two home runs and nine RBIs over his past 11 games.“I’ve been feeling better lately and hopefully I can continue that,” Freeman said.The Braves have had Vince Velasquez’s number and he will start the series opener for the Phillies, with Atlanta calling on fellow right-hander Kevin Gausman.Velasquez (9-11, 4.50 ERA) is 0-4 with a 7.41 ERA in four starts against the Braves this season and 0-5 with a 4.60 ERA in eight career outings.Velasquez also lasted only two innings in his most recent start Saturday against Miami and is 1-3 with a 7.52 ERA in his last seven outings.Gausman (10-10, 3.92 ERA) was acquired by the Braves from Baltimore at the end of July and is 5-2 with a 2.61 ERA in eight starts with his new team.Gausman’s only career outing against Philadelphia came July 12 while with the Orioles and he took a loss, allowing five runs and 12 hits in five innings.The Braves have won seven of the 12 games against the Phillies this season, going 4-2 at home and 3-3 on the road.Nine of the games came in April and the other three in May, meaning that this series in Atlanta and the one to end the regular season in Philadelphia have been pointed to for months.“We have a chance to control our own destiny,” Phillies left fielder Rhys Hoskins said after hitting his 32nd homer in the series finale against the Mets. “Win games and we’ve got a chance to be in the playoffs.”The Phillies may have fallen a little too far off the Braves’ pace, though.“I think what we need … to buy into is what we can control is our work right now,” Phillies manager Gabe Kapler said. “That is going to give us our best chance to stay in this as long as possible. … But I don’t think it makes a whole lot of sense to look too far out.”Philadelphia juggled its rotation a while ago to make sure that Cy Young Award candidate Aaron Nola was available to pitch this weekend and next. Former Cy Young winner Jake Arrieta is also set to go for the Phillies.“It’s going to be a big series, a fun series http://www.redsoxproshops.com/authentic-mookie-betts-jersey ,” Braves manager Brian Snitker said. “We’re getting all their top guys and we’re running our top guys at them.” The best players in baseball played some long ball Tuesday.The American League continued its recent dominance over the National League with a 8-6 victory in the 89th MLB All-Star Game at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C. The Junior Circuit hit five of the 10 total home runs in the contest, with two Houston Astros proving to be the difference in extra innings.Alex Bregman and George Springer drilled back-to-back homers in the top of the 10th, answering the two-run blast off the bat of Cincinnati Reds second baseman Scooter Gennett that tied the contest in the ninth.The win gave the American League a six-game winning streak and a 44-43-2 overall record at the annual event. It also pushed its record to a sparkling 18-3-1 in the last 22 contests.FOX Sports: MLB MLBONFOXALEX BREGMAN FOR THE LEAD! UGvlouSZYJBregman and Springer played the role of extra-inning heroes, but Seattle Mariners shortstop Jean Segura put on a show as well. He drilled a three-run homer in the eighth inning to break a 2-2 tie and scored the only run of the contest that didn't come on a long ball in the 10th after he reached base via single.FOX Sports: MLB MLBONFOXJEAN SEGURA FOR THE LEAD.The Mariners star CRUSHES a 3-run homer tpQ6NfQQgxHis three-run blast was only possible because Reds first baseman Joey Votto gave him new life by dropping a pop-up in foul territory near the dugout on the prior pitch. The argument can be made Segura deserved the game's MVP, but it went to Bregman for hitting the go-ahead homer.As for Votto, he tried to make up for the gaffe with a solo homer in the bottom of the 10th, but the National League ran out of comeback juice when Toronto Blue Jays southpaw J.A. Happ closed the door.Fans tuning in for fireworks got exactly what they were looking for, as ESPN StatsInfo noted Gennett's homer鈥攚hich was the seventh of the evening鈥攕et the all-time record for dingers in an All-Star Game. Just for good measure, there were three more in the extra frame, pushing the grand total to double digits.In one way it is a testament to the talent on the two pitching staffs that there weren't many baserunners, but the power in both lineups proved to be overwhelming throughout the contest.As for a positive pitching angle, Chris Sale of the Boston Red Sox and Max Scherzer of the Washington Nationals made history as the starters.According to Mark Feinsand of MLB.com, Tuesday's contest marked the first time since 1940 the same two pitchers started two straight Midsummer Classics. What's more Brock Holt Jersey , Sale joined Robin Roberts and Lefty Gomez as the only three pitchers in baseball history to start three consecutive All-Star Games.He was effective while making history, throwing a scoreless first and allowing just a single hit. He and Scherzer provided an early show with filthy sliders and fastballs with movement, but the Nationals righty gave up a foreshadowing homer to Aaron Judge to go with his four strikeouts.FOX Sports: MLB MLBONFOXALL RISE IN THE ALL STAR GAME.Aaron Judge goes YARD off Max Scherzer. O7KsG13Tx4The Home Run Derby was Monday, but Judge's drive set up a back-and-forth of power for the rest of the game. In all, Judge, Mike Trout, Segura, Bregman and Springer hit long balls for the American League, while Willson Contreras, Trevor Story, Christian Yelich, Gennett and Votto went deep for the National League.Some of the homers stood out more than others, as Trout's came off Jacob deGrom in a showdown between the majors' ERA leader and a once-in-a-generation talent.The Los Angeles Angels center fielder is already a seven-time All-Star, two-time MVP and future Hall of Famer http://www.redsoxproshops.com/authentic-rusney-castillo-jersey , and he further cemented his All-Star Game legacy that includes ridiculous numbers:Jayson Stark jaysonstMike Trouts all-star career (so far)17 PA7-for-143 walks2 HR2 MVP awardsApparently, hes pretty good.Zachary D. Rymer zachrymerPeriodic reminder that Mike Trout is probably the best player in baseball history.The National League didn't go away, tying the game with solo home runs from Contreras and Story. Contreras' homer came on the first pitch he ever saw in an All-Star Game, and it is not difficult to envision the 26-year-old starting at backstop for the Senior Circuit for years to come.In fact, it was a historic drive for the Chicago Cubs catcher:Jesse Rogers ESPNChiCubsFrom Elias: Willson Contreras is the first player in MLB history to hit the 1st pitch he saw in his career for a HR and the 1st pitch he saw in his All-Star Game debut for a HR.His team continued to use its power to battle back, as Yelich's homer came after Segura put the National League in a 5-2 hole, and Gennett's set up extra innings.Much like the World Series, though, the Astros hitters made the difference against a Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher. Ross Stripling gave up the long balls to Bregman and Springer, surely bringing up unwanted memories for Los Angeles fans in the process.The National League will look to get back on track in enemy territory with next year's All-Star Game at Cleveland's Progressive Field.
