The MLB-best Philadelphia Phillies (34-14) enjoyed their off day on Monday and come into action on Tuesday 5.0 games up on the Atlanta Braves in the NL East. They'll face the reigning World Series champion Texas Rangers (24-24) for a three-game series at Citizens Bank Park.

With Sunday's win over the Washington Nationals, the Phillies became the first team to get to 20 games over the .500 mark this season. They'll hope to continue their winning ways against a Rangers team that sits 2.0 games back in the NL West after going 3-7 in their last 10 games.

  • Ranger Suárez (8-0) will start for the Phillies tonight. The lefty has the second-lowest ERA in the majors at 1.37 and the lowest WHIP at 0.76. Suárez is coming off his shortest outing since his season debut. He went five innings against the Mets in wet, chilly conditions last week. Despite not getting much help from his defense early on, he picked up the win, allowing two unearned runs on four hits with three strikeouts and a pair of walks.
  • Jon Gray (2-1) counters for the Rangers. The 32-year-old right-hander has a 2.08 ERA and 1.17 WHIP through 10 games (nine starts). He has thrown four quality starts in a row, with a 6 1/3 inning shutout of the Cleveland Guardians last time out. In 10 career starts against the Phillies, the former Rockie is 5-3 with a 4.18 ERA.
