Reds 1, Phillies 0: Suarez shines, offense struggles

Entering Wednesday afternoon fresh off the heels of an 11-4 drubbing of the Reds, the Phillies looked to complete the three-game sweep on the road.

A battle of southpaws was on tap as Ranger Suarez squared off with Cincinncati rookie Nick Lodolo. The 24-year-old entered Wednesday with 64 strikeouts in just 47 and 2/3 innings pitched on the season.

Lodolo has a reputation of being especially tough on left-handed hitters, causing Rob Thomson to deploy a unique Philly lineup.

Happy Wednesday! #RingTheBell
