Preview: Phillies look to capitalize on last night’s victory in series finale vs Mets
The Phillies got a huge win last night in New York, as Kyle Schwarber’s 7th inning home run led the team to a 4-1 victory. The Phils are now back to .500 at 11-11 and will look to close their gap with the Mets in the NL East to three games.
The Fightin’s battled on Saturday night. A pitching duel took the top headline of the night, as Kyle Gibson dominated the Mets for four and a third. He allowed just two hits, zero earned runs, and struck out three batters. Kyle Gibson has been the best pitcher for the Phils this season, tallying just a 2.93 ERA in 27.2 innings pitched.
Odubel Herrera, Rhys Hoskins, and Kyle Schwarber were the big names on offense, all coming up with clutch RBIs. Schwarber has been struggling this season, but the biggest hit of his Phillies career powered the momentum and led the Phillies to the series-tying win.
We now turn our attention to tonight. The city of Philadelphia received a positive update about Joel Embiid today, the Eagles are back, and the Phils play the Mets on Sunday Night Baseball tonight. Let’s have a day and win some money.
FOX Bet Odds Boosts
- Bryce Harper or Kyle Schwarber HR +150
- Nick Castellanos 1+ Hit and Phillies Win +200
- 9x Your Money: Hoskins and Lindor 1+ RBI Each +800
I love all of these bets, but two of them are locks. The Phillies are going to win tonight, and Bryce Harper goes yard. Nick Castellanos leads the team in batting average, and I see him getting two hits tonight…but we’ll take him for one.

Tonight’s game is going to rock. The Phils have won five of their last six, and get to square off against one of the best arms in the entire MLB. I think the Phillies bats come up big for the second night in a row, and they secure a win late. Phillies win 4-3.
