Philadelphia Phillies Recap

The Philadelphia Phillies come into this series looking to build on another series sweep after a 5-2 win over Texas in their series finale on Thursday, giving the Phils another sweep after sweeping the Nationals earlier in the week. The series win was just another in the list after wins over the Mets, Marlins, Giants, Angels and Padres over the last month.

Trea Turner has 10 doubles with 10 stolen bases as well and Kyle Schwarber has 9 home runs, 30 RBIs and a team-high 69 strikeouts as well this season. Johan Rojas also has 11 stolen bases as well this season.

Rockies Starting To Stumble Again

Ryan McMahon leads the charge for the Rockies with 56 hits including team-highs of 9 home runs, 30 RBIs and 10 doubles with a .298 batting average while Elias Diaz has a .320 batting average with 47 hits and 9 doubles as well as 23 RBIs.

Philadelphia Phillies vs Colorado Rockies Prediction

I’m on the Phillies here. I know it’s Sanchez’s first career start at Coors Field, but Ty Blach for me is not a viable option in an MLB starting rotation and the Phillies are tearing the cover off of the ball right now, regardless of who is on the other side. Colorado just found creative ways to lose their series against Oakland with a pair of blown leads, and I don’t think the Phillies will even afford Oakland that opportunity here. I think this one is all Philadelphia so give me the Phillies here.
