Foltynewicz faces challenge of homer-hitting Phillies

The Philadelphia Phillies have been on a home run binge, which may be bad news for Atlanta Braves starter Mike Foltynewicz when the teams meet Sunday in the finale of a three-game series at Atlanta's SunTrust Park.

Foltynewicz (1-5, 6.02 ERA) will take the ball and attempt to turn around his inconsistent season, which has been laden with gopher balls. Philadelphia said it would recall left-hander Cole Irvin (2-1, 5.48) from Triple-A Lehigh Valley, and he is considered the likely starter, although no official announcement was made.

The first two games of the series have been decided in the ninth inning.
