Preview: Phillies hope to avoid series sweep vs Dodgers
The Phillies take the field today against the Los Angeles Dodgers at 1:35, looking to avoid the sweep. Zach Eflin will get the ball for the Phillies, and will match up against Tony Gonsolin.
Last night’s game was another horrific performance. Nola wasn’t great, the bullpen allowed eight hits, and Philadelphia swung for just six hits. Saturday night’s loss marked three in a row for the Phillies of dead, lazy, gutless baseball.
The team will look at take the series finale today. For an offense that was built to hit the ball, this is the least confident I’ve been in them all season.

Phillies Starting Lineup
Lineup Notes: JT Realmuto gets the day off, with Garrett Stubbs behind the plate. Odubel Herrera is still in this starting lineup for some reason. Stott takes the 9-hole at short.
I’ll predict the Phillies win, but I’m not betting on this team until they show me they know how to hit a baseball. Phils win.
