Philadelphia Phillies Recap

The Philadelphia Phillies come into this one looking to bounce back and win the rubber match of the series after an 8-6 loss in Wednesday’s matchup evened the set up at one win apiece. The Phillies losing on Wednesday puts them at risk of having their series unbeaten run snapped with a split against the Mets and wins against the Brewers and Cardinals over the last week and a half ahead of a weekend series in Baltimore.

Alec Bohm leads the Phillies with 72 hits including 23 doubles, a .286 batting average and a team-high 52 RBIs while Bryce Harper has a team-high 15 home runs with 46 RBIs and Bryson Stott has a team-high 18 stolen bases. Trea Turner has 10 doubles with 10 stolen bases as well and Kyle Schwarber has 13 home runs, 38 RBIs and a team-high 85 strikeouts as well this season. Johan Rojas also has 14 stolen bases as well this season.

Boston Red Sox vs Philadelphia Phillies Prediction

I’m on the under here. I think this has the makings of a rock solid pitcher’s duel, from the starters in Nola, who has a sub-two road ERA this season and Houck, who has a sub-two ERA overall this year, and a pair of solid bullpens as well. I think we saw all the runs come out on Wednesday, but everything scales back here. Give me the under.
