Phillies’ Recent Performance

After falling to the Atlanta Braves 6- 0 on the road, the Philadelphia Phillies want to get back on track after cutting their lead in the National League East to eight games. The Phillies only managed five hits in total, though Whit Merrifield had two hits. The implicit return of Harper( strained left hamstring) and Kyle Schwarber( strained left groin) could give them with a significant boost. Before Sunday’s game, Harper ran the bases and said,” I feel good, but I do not know yet” about whether he’d be actuated for the series opener. Schwarber is also anticipated to be initiated on Tuesday.

Dodgers’ All-Star Lineup

The Dodgers arrive in Philadelphia having won two of three against the NL Central-leading Milwaukee Brewers but fell 9-2 on Sunday. Chris Taylor hit a two-run home run, but the team went 1-for-9 with runners in scoring position and left 11 on base.

Shohei Ohtani, one of the Dodgers’ six All-Stars, has had an impressive season with 28 home runs and 20 stolen bases, joining Davey Lopes (1979) and Matt Kemp (2011) as the only Dodgers to achieve at least 20 homers and 20 steals before the All-Star break. The Dodgers’ other All-Stars are Will Smith, Teoscar Hernandez, Mookie Betts, Freddie Freeman, and Tyler Glasnow. Betts is currently on the injured list with a fractured left hand and will miss this series and the All-Star Game.

“I think there’s six of us, that’s pretty special,” Freeman said. “When you’ve got over 20 percent of your team going to an All-Star Game, that means you’ve got a pretty good team. So it’s going to be fun. Great group of guys.”

Dodgers’ Recent Performance

Despite missing Betts, the Dodgers entered Monday with a 7 1/2-game cushion in the NL West. Manager Dave Roberts said, “I think we’ve done a nice job of sort of trying to weather it and still winning baseball games. We won a series against a good ballclub over there.”

Bobby Miller will receive the ball from the Dodgers (1-1, 6.12 ERA). Miller pitched five innings against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday, allowing four hits, two runs, four walks, and four strikeouts.
