The Atlanta Braves enter Sunday trying to close out the first half of the MLB season with some momentum and its first sweep of the Philadelphia Phillies in five years would certainly do the trick. Atlanta took Friday's series opener 5-0 behind a solid outing from Tim Hudson and followed that up with a 6-3 win on Saturday.
Jair Jurrjens will take the mound for the Braves and is 2-0 with a 1.47 ERA since returning from the minor leagues. Overall Jurrjens is 2-2 with a 5.19 ERA.
Philadelphia has lost 9 of 10 and will give the ball to Vance Worley on Sunday. Worley gave up six runs in four innings in a loss to the New York Mets last time out but 1-0 with a 1.64 ERA in two career starts against Atlanta.
