The Phillies (73-58) are truly on a roll now, winnings six of their last seven games. As a result, they now have a four-game lead/advantage for the top wild card spot in the NL. The latest win, saw them take Monday night's series opener 6-4 versus the Angles (63-69), lead by two home runs from Trea Turner. The Phillies will now aim to make it two out of two on Tuesday night at Citizens Bank Park.

Probable starting pitchers

  • We're not implying Michael Lorenzen (7-8) sold his soul to produce the first no-hitter of his Major League career, but he's been paying for it ever since. Consider that he has allowed a combined 16 hits, four walks and 11 runs (10 earned) in the two starts following his magnificent achievement. It's worth noting Lorenzen has now pitched 131.2 innings on the year, whereas his previous single-season high was 113.1 innings way back in his rookie campaign of 2015. For 2023 with the Tigers and Phillies combined, he has recorded a 3.69 ERA, 4.13 FIP and 1.116 WHIP.
  • Last year was always going to be a hard act for Tyler Anderson (5-5) to follow. He had a career campaign, which included single-season bests with 15 wins, a 2.57 ERA, 3.31 FIP and 1.002 WHIP, along with his first ever All-Star selection. At the same time, you wouldn't have expected Anderson to be last among all regular Angels starters in ERA, WHIP and WAR. In fairness he was unfortunate last time out versus the Reds, as he only allowed 3 hits and one earned run in 4.2 innings, but was let down after his defense gave up three unearned runs and he was tagged with the loss.
