GAME 1

Starters: Tanner Roark (4-4, 3.47 ERA) vs. TBA

Pitching:

Roark had an underwhelming performance in his last start, surrendering four earned runs on six hits in six innings of a 5-2 home loss to the Washington Nationals on Jun. 1. Prior to that, though, Roark was able to silence the Chicago Cubs big bats at Wrigley Field on May 26, when he threw five scoreless innings in a 10-2 road win. Roark is 4-4 with a 3.43 ERA in 15 starts against the Phillies since 2016. P

Hitting

Eugenio Suarez has batted .351 in the past 30 days as of this writing

Phillies are 19th in the majors with a .313 wOBA as of this writing.

Prediction: Phillies win, 6-3.


GAME 2

Starters: Sonny Gray (2-5, 3.54 ERA) vs. Nick Pivetta (3-1, 6.14 ERA)

Pitching:

Gray has been steady over at least his past three starts, during which he allowed a total of three earned runs on 15 hits. None of those hits came off of homers, which partly explains his solid 2.94 FIP. Pivetta has struggled for the most part of the season, but he had a fantastic showing in his last start, albeit in an 8-0 road loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Jun. 2,  when he tossed six scoreless innings.

Hitting:

Jose Iglesias is batting .310 at home as of this writing.

Jose Peraza is 2-for-5 with two doubles in his career against Pivetta.

Prediction: Cincinnati wins, 4-3.


GAME 3

Starters: Luis Castillo (5-1, 2.45 ERA) vs. Aaron Nola (6-1, 4.63 ERA)

Pitching:

Castillo has faced the Phillies just two times in his young career thus far, but has a record of 1-0 and a 2.08 ERA over those starts. He’ll look to keep his unbeaten record against Philly when he faces them in the third and final game of this series. Nola got tagged with his first loss of the season in his last start, when he got rocked for six earned runs on right hits in 5.1 innings of work against the San Diego Padres on the road.

Hitting

Derek Dietrich is 5-for-19 with two doubles and a home run in his career vs. Nola.

The current Phillies roster has a career .200 batting average against Castillo.

Prediction: Cincinnati wins, 4-3.


Writer’s Overall Series Prediction

Cincinnati wins two of three games in the series.
