The Philadelphia Phillies (6-6) escaped St. Louis with a series win after taking Wednesday's finale against the Cardinals by a 4-3 score. Aaron Nola had to grind through more cold, wet weather but still put up six innings, giving up two solo home runs but only three hits total, with three strikeouts. Alec, Bohm, Brandon Marsh and Nick Castellanos all drove in a run, while Jeff Hoffman picked up his first save with a clean ninth.

The Phillies are kicking off a 10-game homestand, beginning with four games against the NL Central-leading Pittsburgh Pirates (9-3). The Phils, who may have to deal with more wet weather, will have their hands full as they try to climb above the .500 mark for the first time this season and improve on their 2-4 record at Citizens Bank Park. The Pirates have not lost a series this season, have posted a +19 run differential, and are an impressive 6-1 on the road.

Phillies vs. Pirates probable pitchers, April 11

  • Left-hander Ranger Suárez (1-0) will try to help the Phillies get off on the right foot against the Pirates on Thursday. The southpaw has been solid in his first two starts of the season, with a 4.09 ERA but just a 0.73 WHIP. While he has a 4.14 FIP, Suárez has been unlucky so far. He has a 2.30 xERA and a 2.68 xFIP with a 64.3 percent groundball rate.
  • The Pirates will counter with rookie sensation Jared Jones (1-1). The 22-year-old right-hander has impressed in his two starts in the majors so far. He has a 3.86 ERA and a 0.94 WHIP with 17 strikeouts over 11 2/3 innings. Jones entered the season as the Pirates' No. 3 prospect and second pitching prospect behind Paul Skenes. He features a four-pitch mix with a 97 mph fastball, slider, curveball and changeup.
