There has been scoring in the first inning in just five of the Phillies’ last 12 games. Yeah, none of those games was against the 1927 Yankees, but with both teams coming back after an off day, let’s assume it takes an inning or so to shake off the cob webs.
Rhys Hoskins has just four home runs in his last 32 games at Citizens Bank Park (none in his last nine) after blasting eight in his first 19 contests there this season. If he can get one early in this homestand, we will jump right back on it, but not until then.
The last time a division-leading team came to The Bank, the Phillies and the Dodgers combined for 18, 17, 9 and 13 runs. So – despite rooting for zero runs in Friday's initial frame − let’s take the Over and an Alternative Over.
Pick: No runs in first inning ($5/+120)
Pick: Over 9.5 Runs ($5/-110)
Pick: Over 11.5 Runs ($5/+180)
