It figures to be a steamy day in Philadelphia with the weather forecast calling for a high of 92 degrees and southwest wind at 10-15 mph. There could be a late rain delay as there is a 60% chance of thunderstorms after 5 p..

LAD vs PHI Probable Pitchers

Tony Gonsolin (4-0, 1.64) is scheduled to start for the Dodgers against Zach Eflin (1-3, 3.90). Eflin will be pitching on four days of rest and Gonsolin on five.

Gonsolin vs Eflin

Tony Gonsolin
Zach Eflin
4-0 Record 1-3
1.64 ERA 3.90
2.36 xERA 2.31
1.03 WHIP 1.20
2.00 SO/W 4.60

Gonsolin has won his last three starts, including beating the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday in Los Angeles. The cat lover allowed two runs on three hits in six innings while striking out seven and walking two.

Gonsolin has only faced the Phillies once in his career and had a no-decision last season in Los Angeles when he surrendered one run in 3.2 innings.

In three road starts this season, Gonsolin is 1-0 with a 2.25 ERA. Gonsolin pitched six shutout innings to beat the visiting Atlanta Braves on April 20 in his lone start during the day.

Eflin has been the losing pitcher in his last two starts, including Tuesday against the San Diego Padres at home in a fine effort. In six innings, he gave up one run and five hits with five strikeouts and no walks.

That was Eflin’s first outing since May 1 after spending time on the COVID-19 injured list.

The Dodgers have given Eflin major problems as he is 0-3 with an 8.76 ERA against them in six lifetime starts. He is 1-1 with a 1.13 ERA in three home starts in 2022 and has no record and a 1.86 ERA in two starts in the daytime.

Max Muncy is 4 for 8 with two home runs against Eflin while Cody Bellinger is 3 for 10 (.300) with two longballs. Freddie Freeman, though, is just a .133 (4 for 30) hitter versus Eflin, though his hits have been two doubles and two homers.

Dodgers vs Phillies Betting Outlook

Mookie Betts did it all for the Dodgers in Saturday night’s win.

The right fielder had a home run and double among his three hits. He also threw out the potential go-ahead run at home plate.

Betts has reached base in 20 of his last 21 games, hitting .333 (29 for 87) in that span with seven doubles, seven home runs and 18 RBIs.

Gavin Lux lined the go-ahead single for the Dodgers in the eighth inning to make it 5-4.

Phillies designated hitter Bryce Harper returned to the lineup Saturday after sitting out five games following a platelet-rich plasma injection in his ailing right elbow. He went 1 for 4.

The 2021 National League MVP has a slightly torn ligament and his NL MVP odds this season are +900.

Harper made a fan happy during his downtime.

The teams have split six games this season and the Dodgers hold a 28-18 edge in the series since the start of the 2015 season.

Dodgers vs Phillies Prediction

Gonsolin is quietly off to a fantastic start for the Dodgers this season. Look for him to keep it rolling against the Phillies and Eflin, who is often overwhelmed by Los Angeles’ potent lineup.

Pick: Dodgers ML (-137)
