MONDAY’S SINGLE DIGITS

>>> The Miami Marlins came into Philadelphia last Friday with a 27-46 record and proceeded to take three in a row from the Phillies.

That .370 winning percentage is the lowest ever by a team to come in and sweep the Phillies (3+ games) at Citizens Bank Park or Veterans Stadium.

They are just the fifth team to enter either of those stadiums with a percentage under .400 and sweep the Phils:

.370 – Marlins (27-46), June 21-23, 2019
.3760 – Braves (47-78), Aug. 20-22, 1979
.3766 – Brewers (29-48), June 29-July 2, 2015 (4)
.381 – Braves (51-83), Sept. 2-4, 2016
.394 – Mets (37-57), Aug. 8-10, 1995

>>> The Phillies are now one game under .500 (119-120) with Gabe Kapler at the helm. Here is one way that record breaks down:

16-25 – Starting pitcher bats 8th
94-91 – Starting pitcher bats 9th
9-4 – Starting pitcher does not bat (DH)

>>> Even with the round-tripper he hit Saturday, Rhys Hoskins has just two home runs over his last 71 at-bats at Citizens Bank Park.

● ● ●

>>> The Phillies are now 1-8 in their last nine series finales.
