Preview: Phillies look for their fourth win in a row with Ranger Suarez on the mound
The Phillies take on the Dodgers once again tonight at 10:10 EST, looking to win their fourth game in a row, and third straight in LA.
The Fightins offense has been red hot on their current road trip, improving to 4-1 after last night’s 12-10 win in extra innings.
Tonight, Ranger Suarez will take the mound against Dodgers pitcher Julio Urias, as the Phillies look to secure their first series win at Dodger Stadium since 2015.
Since then, they are 0-5-1 in LA over the last series played.
The bats have come alive for the Phillies on their West Coast trip. Through the first five games, they have averaged 7.6 runs while hitting 10 home runs.
Bryce Harper, who has been limited to the designated hitter spot has been tremendous at the plate. Last night the reigning MVP tallied three more hits with two doubles and a home run. Harper leads the Phillies with eight home runs and has a Major League leading 22 extra-base hits.
Unfortunately for the Phillies, they will be losing Harper starting tomorrow until likely Wednesday or Thursday of this week.
Tonight will be Harper’s last game before getting a PRP injection tomorrow on his right elbow.

- Julio Urias 8+ Ks and Dodgers Win +600
- Ranger Suarez 6+ Ks and Phillies Win +800
- Bryce Harper and Freddie Freeman 2+ Hits Each +1100
I said it once, and I’ll say it again. Bryce Harper is scorching hot. He’s slashing .481/.531/1.000 over the last seven days, with 13 hits, 5 doubles, 3 HRs, 7 RBIs, and 27 total bases. He’s fully embraced the DH position this season, and it’s really paying off for the former MVP at the plate. Freddie Freeman will always be a Phillies killer, and these odds are just too good not to take.
