My analysis

Although Philadelphia Phillies designated hitter Kyle Schwarber isn’t your prototypical leadoff hitter, he’s been placed atop the lineup all year long. He currently has his batting average up to .249 — his highest since the 2021 season — thanks to an 11-for-39 start to June.

In fact, Schwarber has been one of the few Phillies hitters swinging the bat well as of late. He’s riding a six-game hitting streak (10-for-24), with two home runs and a double in that span. The DH is coming off a three-hit game at Fenway Park on Thursday and is 6-for-11 since returning from London this week.

The Philly slugger has been fairly consistent all season long with at least one hit in 40 of 66 games (60%) and he has recorded a hit in 13 of his last 18 games since May 23. These odds of -150 imply a 60% probability of this bet cashing in tonight's matchup against the Baltimore Orioles, and we get a bit of an edge given Schwarber's recent hot streak.

Phillies vs Orioles same-game parlay (SGP)

Kyle Schwarber to record a hit

Ranger Suarez to record 6+ strikeouts

Kyle Bradish to record 6+ strikeouts

There could be quite a few strikeouts in Baltimore on Friday night. Ranger Suarez has recorded at least six strikeouts in nine of his 13 starts this season, while Kyle Bradish has accomplished the same in five of his last seven appearances — including four straight.

Both the Phillies and Orioles sit in the middle of the pack in terms of team strikeout rate, and Philly is without a few key bats in Trea Turner and J.T. Realmuto.
