In his no-hit bid through six before the rain delay, Aaron Nola has everything working, notching 10 strikeouts with four different pitches -- his four-seam and two-seam fastballs, his changeup and his curve, and getting six swinging K's with all but the two-seamer.

Nick Pivetta struck out seven over seven innings, and Nick Williams and Aaron Altherr each homered to lead the Phillies to a 3-0 win over the Atlanta Braves on Monday night.
David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer
Nick Pivetta has pitched in the shadow of Aaron Nola and Jake Arrieta, but he's quietly been very effective all season. He's shut down the NL's hottest offense tonight with seven scoreless innings, lowering his ERA to 3.23. Take away that one blowup start (six runs in one innings against the Nats) and he's done the job all season and looks like a solid anchor piece for the rotation.
