Braves vs Phillies Rivalry

Braves vs Phillies.

The long hate stricken rivalry between the Atlanta Braves and the Philadelphia Phillies has always given all baseball fans a hard fought matchup. Having said that the Braves have played the Phillies a whopping 518 times since 1980. The rivalry is pretty much neck and neck with the Braves barely in front with 274 victories to the Phillies 244. This season the matchup is split 5 to 5, with a few series reaming versus each other.
Both teams are some of the older teams in baseball with the Braves being established in 1871 and the Phillies in 1883. Both teams are nearly equal prestige when it comes to pennants and titles. This will continue to be a great rivalry for all baseball fans.
