Keys to the Game: Phillies Vs. Braves, September 27, 2011

September 27, 2011

Fortunately for the Atlanta Braves, their 4-2 lose to the Philadelphia Phillies last evening did not effect their one game NL Wild Card lead. Unfortunately for the Braves, in what is a must, must win game, they will give the ball to Derek Lowe (9-16, 4.92 ERA). Lowe has been horrible in September posting a 8.24 ERA and has allowed more than twice as many hits (32) than batters he has struck out (15). Check out Derek Lowe’s dismal numbers this September.

ERs Allowed (Blue), Hits (Orange) & Strikeouts (Green)

The Phillies will seek their 101th win of the season with Roy Oswalt (8-10, 3.86 ERA) on the hill. Oswalt is 1-0 with a 2.07 ERA in two starts against the Braves this season. The Phillies won’t rest any of their big bats tonight, as Ryan Howard, Hunter Pence, Jimmy Rollins and Shane Victorino are all in the lineup tonight. Compare the offensive production of Philadelphia’s and Atlanta’s starting lineups tonight.

PHI: RBIs (Blue), Runs Scored (Orange) & Total Bases (Green)


ATL: RBIs (Blue), Runs Scored (Orange) & Total Bases (Green)

With St. Louis playing the lowly Astros, the Braves must win out, if they hope to avoid a one game play-in match for the NL Wild Card.
