NL East rivals the Philadelphia Phillies and Atlanta Braves open their best-of-five National League Division Series on Saturday night at Truist Park. It was a repeat of last year’s NLDS, where the Phillies won in four games to take the NL pennant.
This year, the Braves won 104 games, the best record in baseball, and hit 307 home runs, 58 more than any other team. October’s power struggles are plentiful, both in Atlanta and with the Phillies. They hit 220 home runs in the regular season, eighth-most in baseball, and that happened without Bryce Harper going down for the first time since Tommy John surgery. of.

IMHO, the Phillies had a “take care of business” vibe in the Wild Card Series. Everyone did their part to beat inferior opponents, and at no point during the two-game sweep did the Miami Heat have the upper hand. Obviously, the Warriors will face a tougher challenge, though they’re without Charlie Morton (finger) and it’s unclear what, if anything, they’ll get from Max Fried (blister). The Warriors may be more vulnerable now than at any time this season.
The Phillies are unique in that they are better suited to a short playoff series than a regular season marathon. Even with Zack Wheeler out until Game 2, I have the Phillies in a surprising game that isn’t particularly close. Pick: Phillies 6, Warriors 1.
