Phillies took control of Game Two at home before winning three more on their way to taking an impressive three-games-to-two lead in this best-of-seven series, leading all playoff teams with an astounding 2.06 team ERA. Aaron Nola (3-1) suffered through an unsympathetic outing against San Francisco that resulted in four runs over four and a half frames and eventually taking the loss. All-Star catcher JT Realmuto displayed his prowess by doubling and scoring one run, helping his side with just six hits total compared to San Francisco’s six hits.
Ranger Suarez to Start
Philadelphia will rely heavily on their 28-year-old southpaw Ranger Suarez (4-6, 4.18 ERA). Suarez has been impressive throughout this postseason – only allowing one run in 14 innings pitched while striking out 13 batters! In Game Seven Philadelphia will turn to Ranger Suarez.
Rhys Hoskins of the Phillies has made impressive progress since being sidelined due to a knee injury, adding yet more drama and anticipation for this thrilling postseason. If successful he may even return for World Series play – giving even greater suspense!
