The Phillies have been a surprise this season and they have won 7 of their last 8 games including taking the first game of this series. They are in 3rd place in the tough NL East only 2.5 games back of the Washington Nationals.
The Cardinals fell below .500 on the season with a loss yesterday and they have lost 5 of their last 6 games. They are in 3rd place in the NL Central 7 games back of the Chicago Cubs.
The Phillies had lost 4 straight to the Cardinals in St. Louis before winning yesterday’s game 1-0.
The main reason the Phillies are winning is their offense, which ranks tied for 1st in runs scored. They have an unheralded pitching staff, but they have been getting it done this season, for the most part, ranking a decent 14th in the Majors in team ERA.
Adam Morgan (0-0 5.40 ERA) goes for the Phillies tonight and in his last outing, which was his first of the season, he gave up 3 earned runs in 5 innings in a 4-3 win over the Cleveland Indians.
Morgan faced the Cardinals last season and he had a good outing only giving up 1 earned run in 5 innings, with 6 strikeouts, in a 9-2 Philadelphia win.
The Phillies have only won 2 of their last 7 games on the road with Morgan getting the start.
The Phillies are 8-6 on the road this season.
