The suddenly resurgent Philadelphia Phillies will try to sweep a three-game home series from the skidding Los Angeles Angels at 1:35pm ET Sunday at Citizens Bank Park.

The Phillies (24-29, 14-15) have won three straight games, including two in a row over the Angels since firing manager Joe Girardi on Friday and replacing him with bench coach Rob Thomson on an interim basis.

The win streak comes after the Phillies lost five in a row and seven of eight.

The Angels (27-27,12-14 road) saw their losing streak reach 10 games Saturday night with a 7-2 loss. It is their longest skid since dropping 11 straight in 2016. Los Angeles has also lost 14 of its last 17 games.

Sandoval is 2-0 with a 4.03 ERA in his last four starts but was hit hard by the Toronto Blue Jays in his most recent outing Sunday in Anaheim. Though he did not factor in the decision, Sandoval was rocked for six runs (five earned) on five hits and three walks in three innings while striking out four.

Sandoval, who has +5000 AL Cy Young odds, will be making his first career appearance against the Phillies.

In three starts on the road this season, Sandoval is 1-1 with a 2.20 ERA. He has a 2-1 record and a 3.62 ERA in six starts in day games.

Gibson is 0-1 with a 5.31 ERA in his last four starts. However, Gibson pitched well in a no-decision against the visiting San Francisco Giants on Monday, allowing two runs on three hits in six innings with four strikeouts and one walk.

In 13 career starts versus the Angels, Gibson is 3-5 with a 5.59 ERA.

Sunday’s game would appear to be a good situation for Gibson. He is 3-1 with a 2.37 ERA in five starts at Citizens Bank Park this season and 2-1 with a 2.19 ERA in four starts in the daytime.

The Angels’ Mike Trout is 7 for 23 (.304) against Gibson with one double and two home runs. Jared Walsh is 3 for 6 with a double and two homers.

Angels vs Phillies Betting Outlook

Johan Camargo drove in four runs to lead the Phillies to victory on Saturday night and Zack Wheeler struck out nine in six innings for the win.

A two-run double by JT Realmuto and Camargo’s two-run single helped the Phillies take a 5-0 lead in the first inning. Camargo hit another two-run single in the eighth and Realmuto finished with three doubles.

Phillies’ second baseman Nick Maton is questionable after sitting out Saturday with right shoulder soreness.

Trout went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts. He is hitless in his last 23 at-bats, the worst slide of the three-time American League MVP’s career.

Angels right fielder Taylor Ward is expected to be in the lineup Sunday. He left Friday’s game with right hamstring tightness and did not start Saturday.

The Angels had won 12 straight games against the Phillies prior to Friday.

Angels vs Phillies Prediction

The Phillies have got at least a short-term boost by switching managers. Look for them to make it a sweep of the freefalling Angels.
