The Philadelphia Phillies are one game away from taking down their NL East Divisional rival, the Atlanta Braves. The Phillies are completely dominating the field in the batting game, on defense, and on the pitching mound.

Each player for the Phillies is having a significant performance in this series. One player who has a solid series at the plate for the Phillies is centerfielder Brandon Marsh.

In the three games played, Marsh accounted for three hits, one double-base hit, two runs, with one of them being a home run, one RBI, seven total bases, four strikeouts, a batting average of .375, an on-base percentage of .444 and a slugging percentage of .875.

Marsh has more of a chance of being suppressed at the plate than accounting for a hit, according to DraftKings. It is going to be tough for the Braves to stop the momentum of the Phillies in all phases of the game. All of the key role players for Philadelphia, like Marsh, could have a huge game four on Thursday and win the series.

My Pick – Spencer Strider Prop To Account for Under 8.5 strikeouts (-155 on DraftKings)

The Braves are one game away from being eliminated from the postseason. Atlanta wouldn't be the most disappointing elite team to lose in the Divisional Series. That honor falls on the Baltimore Orioles and the Los Angeles Dodgers for being swept.

The only player who might shed the momentum of the rallying Phillies is Braves starting pitcher Spencer Strider (1.29 ERA in 7.0 postseason innings pitched). Strider has the lowest ERA of all the pitchers who have pitched in more than two innings in this postseason series.

In the game one 3-0 loss to the Phillies on October 7, Strider allowed only five hits, two runs, two walks, and one home run while delivering eight strikeouts.

Strider is attempting to give the Braves one more chance to get back into this series with a 2-2 as game five will go back to Atlanta on Saturday.
