The Thursday Philly Props: Phillies

So, you saw how Rhys Hoskins knew against whom he was batting (Jacob Rhame) in the ninth inning Wednesday, right? And how he made that Mets pitcher pay for his shenanigans the night before? For a long, loooong time? Thirty-four seconds, to be exact!

Well, the Phils are back home again Thursday, taking on the the Miami Marlins and LHP Caleb Smith, who held them to one hit in six innings on April 13 en route to a 10-6 Marlins victory.

One six-run output does not the end of an offensive slump make, so the Fightin’s know they have to string together a couple of high-output performances. Why not keep it going against a guy who handcuffed them two weeks ago.

The way Aaron Nola is going (iffy at best), we thought about doubling up our Phillies Over (4.5) with a Game Over (7.5), but we’d hate to feel bad if Nola throws a gem and the Phils win 6-0 again.

Pick: Phillies Over 4.5 Runs (+108)
