Phillies' Losing Streak on the Verge of Reaching Double Digits

The Minnesota Twins are the dubious owners of the worst record in the bigs, and they’ll tangle with another lowly club when the Philadelphia Phillies come to town on Thursday. Minny can go for their third series sweep of the campaign against the Phillies with a win.

Shark Bites
  • The Phillies are 0-5 SU in their last 5 games against the AL.
  • The Twins are 5-0 OU in their last 5 games.
  • The Twins are 6-0 OU in their last 6 games against the NL.

Jerad Eickhoff and Ricky Nolasco are slated to get the ball for the Phils and Twins, respectively. Eickhoff (4-9, 3.49 ERA) has been fantastic in his last two starts, giving up totals of one run and five hits while striking out 13 in as many innings.

Nolasco (3-4, 4.91) has turned in four quality starts in his last five outings – a great bounce-back from earlier in the year. Before those five starts, Nolasco was riding an ugly six-game winless streak which saw him give up 30 runs.

When labeled as underdogs, the Phils are cashing OVER bets. The OVER is 10-3 in Philadelphia’s last 13 as dogs.
