The Philadelphia Phillies bid for their third consecutive victory on Saturday when they host the New York Yankees in the opener of an abbreviated two-game series. The Phillies have won two series in a row for the first time since they opened the season with five wins in six outings against the Atlanta Braves and New York Mets. Philadelphia dropped a 9-5 decision to the Braves on Tuesday before rallying for consecutive walk-off victories.
The Dodgers have five left-handed hitters on their active roster: Cody Bellinger, Max Muncy, Gavin Lux, Matt Beaty and Zach McKinstry. Muncy (five home runs in 55 at-bats) and McKinstry (. in 27 at-bats) have been solid against left-handed pitchers.
