Philadelphia Phillies vs Atlanta Braves
After being among the bottom feeders of the National League East last year, the Atlanta Braves and Philadelphia Phillies are happy to find themselves in a better place early in the season.
The two teams open a three-game series Monday at SunTrust Park, the second time the Phillies have visited Atlanta in the first three weeks of the season. Atlanta will send right-hander Julio Teheran (0-1, 7.07 ERA) against Philadelphia right-hander Aaron Nola (1-0, 1.96) in a rematch of Opening Day pitchers.
