Preview: Phillies, Ranger Suarez look for the series sweep, 10th win in a row
The Phillies take the field at 1:35 EST today, looking to sweep the Diamondbacks and win their 10th game in a row.
Ranger Suarez (4-3, 4.42 ERA) is set to take the hill for the Phillies, going up against Kyle Nelson (1-0, 2.04 ERA) of the Diamondbacks.
The Phils shut out the DBacks on Saturday afternoon, powered by a 2 RBI day from Nick Castellanos and a 2-run HR by Bryson Stott. Yesterday’s win marked the first 9-game win streak since 2011 for the Phils, and it doesn’t seem like that streak is stopping anytime soon. The bats are rolling, pitchers are dealing, and the Phils are playing with all the confidence in the world.
Although the Phils are slightly gaining ground on the Mets, the Braves are doing it with them. Atlanta couldn’t let us have anything nice, as they’re on a 10-game win streak as well. The Phillies are currently 30-29 on the season, trailing the Braves by 2.5 games, and the Mets by 8.
It’s a rainy one in the Delaware Valley today, but the tarp is off the field. It seems that today’s game will start on time, even though that didn’t look likely earlier this morning.
