Phillies try to remain in playoff hunt vs. Braves

ATLANTA -- Encouraged by the progress of their young pitchers, the Philadelphia Phillies decided not to add a proven starter to their rotation for the stretch drive.

Former Cy Young Award winner Jake Arrieta and 2018 Cy Young Award candidate Aaron Nola will start for the Phillies against the Atlanta Braves on Saturday and Sunday, but first struggling Nick Pivetta (7-13, 4.67 ERA) must take the mound Friday night.

It is almost a must win for Philadelphia, which fell behind the Braves by 6 1/2 games with an 8-3 loss in the series opener Thursday night at SunTrust Park. Atlanta's magic number for winning the National League East was reduced to four.
