Another battle against the Atlanta Braves begins for the Phillies Monday night

Thanks to an absurd schedule maker the Phillies and Braves will face each other for the second time in four weeks ahead of another series next weekend. Regardless, Philadelphia has a great opportunity to add to their six-game winning streak, the best in the National League.

Philadelphia sits one game ahead of Atlanta in the National League East standings despite dropping two of three in the season opener. A pair of aces will face off in Atlanta to kick-off a three-game series.

Here are the starting lineups for Monday’s game and how to watch and listen to the game.
