Preview: Noah Syndergaard, Phillies look to sweep the Marlins tonight at 6:40 EST
The Phillies take the field tonight at 6:40 EST looking to sweep the Marlins and win their 6th game in a row.
Noah Syndergaard (9-9, 4.09 ERA) gets the ball for the Fightins, going up against Pablo Lopez (8-10, 4.04 ERA) for Miami.
The Phillies won their 5th consecutive game on Wednesday night, as two homers from JT Realmuto and a great start from Kyle Gibson led the way. Bryce Harper hit his 100th homer as a Phillie, and Rhys Hoskins got hit in the hand but won’t miss much time (thank god).
JT Realmuto has been one of, if not the hottest hitter in baseball, slashing .333/.448/.708 over his last 7 games with 8 hits, 3 HRs, 4 runs, 7 RBIs, and 4 BBs. Realmuto, after a tough start to 2022, has completely turned his year around, and could potentially earn some Top 5 MVP votes when its all said and done.
The Phillies’ magic number is officially 16. With the Milwaukee Brewers losing again last night, the Phillies hold a 4.5-game lead over Milwaukee (5.5 with tiebreaker) and a 2.5-game lead over the Padres (3.5 with tiebreaker). The Phils have a 96.3% chance to make the playoffs, according to FanGraphs.
