The Phillies have been averaging 5.57 runs scored per game since the All-Star break, while their opponents are averaging just 3.07 runs per game.
The NL East club was pegged as a favorite twice in those dozen wins – July 19 against the Miami Marlins (-141 with Cole Hamels pitching) and in Saturday’s 12-2 thumping of the Atlanta Braves (-116). They have been lofty underdogs in a number of those wins, cashing as +165, +241, +186, +164 and +245 pups to line their backers’ pockets.
With Adam Morgan scheduled to take the bump Sunday afternoon, they have the chance to finish off a four-game sweep of the Atlanta Braves. The Phils have outscored the Braves 25-6 through the first three games including a 9-3 win Friday and the aforementioned victory Saturday. Julio Teheran is scheduled to start for the visiting Braves – who have lost six-straight games and nine of their last 10 heading into Sunday’s meeting.
