Besides batting average, the team’s slugging and on-base percentages were noteworthy, providing proof of balanced and well-balanced attack.

Max Fried (8-1 W-L, 2.55 ERA) vs. Aaron Nola (12-9 W-L, 4.46 ERA)


Last year of Max Fried was everything but bad, 8-1 W-L was the way he put the icing on the cake topped up with a shiny 2.55 ERA. His control in the field, which was confirmed by 80 strikeouts of 18 was instrumental in the team’s victory. Fried succeeded to keep the opponents’ WHIP at 1.13, which means that he is a pitcher who can keep the other team at bay and prevent them from hitting home runs; such is an advantage in this match.


Aaron Nola, on the opposite side helped the Phillies with durability and strikeouts, he ended with a 12-9 record and 4.46 ERA for 193.2 innings. 202 strikeouts mean that he can get other batters out, but the higher ERA and home run count are vulnerable spots for the Braves to use as a pulling point. Nola’s task will be to make the best use of his powerful strike-out ability without making costly mistakes against a hard-hitting Braves’ offense.
