The Philadelphia Phillies are banking on veteran right-hander Kyle Gibson to continue the team's successful streak of starting pitching when they visit the Atlanta Braves in the second game of a four-game series on Tuesday.
Since April 18, Philadelphia's starting staff has combined to post a 3.36 over the past 32 games. During that span, the Phillies' starters have 173 strikeouts and only 36 walks. Zack Wheeler continued the success on Monday when he allowed two runs on eight hits and no walks with 10 strikeouts in 6 2/3 innings as Philadelphia beat the Braves 7-3.
Gibson (3-2, 3.98 ERA) will be opposed by Atlanta ace Max Fried (4-2, 3.31).
