He has given up four home runs and has a 3.78 ERA in three road starts. Last season, he had a 0-1 record in two starts against the Dodgers with a 4.09 ERA.


The Dodgers, with a seventh-ranked lineup in runs per game, will start Tony Gonsolin, who allowed just three hits and one run in six innings during his one start against the Phillies last season. The Dodgers’ bullpen, currently ranked 24th in MLB for ERA, has been struggling. Both teams have key injuries, including Bryce Harper and Christian Pache for the Phillies and Miguel Rojas and J.D. Martinez for the Dodgers. The game may become a bullpen game due to the low bullpen ERA rankings for both teams. The Dodgers’ recent power surge from Max Muncy and Freddie Freeman may give them an edge in what could be a high-scoring game.
