Ranger Suarez
The Phillies continued their winning streak with a commanding 7-0 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Monday night. Ranger Suárez dominated again, allowing just two hits over seven innings and extending his scoreless streak to an impressive 25 innings. 

Suárez, with a record of 4-0, has been in excellent form, winning his last four starts, including a remarkable 112-pitch shutout against Colorado just last Tuesday. In this game, Suárez demonstrated his mastery, conceding only two singles while striking out five and issuing just one walk. 

Gregory Soto and Jeff Hoffman complemented Suárez's performance with stellar pitching, completing the two-hitter to secure Philadelphia's fourth shutout of the season, tying them with Cleveland for the most shutouts in the majors. 

Despite missing slugger Bryce Harper, the Phillies' offense was on point, scoring runs with sacrifice flies in the second and third innings, and adding another in the fourth on a groundout. They continued to press the advantage, with Kyle Schwarber drawing a walk in the fifth and then scoring on J.T. Realmuto's double down the left-field line. 

Kody Clemens, who was called up from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to fill in at first base during Harper's paternity leave, capped off the night with a memorable three-run homer in the ninth inning off Casey Legumina. 

On the opposing side, Hunter Greene had a solid outing for the Reds despite the loss, allowing four runs on seven hits and striking out seven over seven innings. 

Bryson Stott contributed with two RBIs for the Phillies, showcasing the team's offensive depth as they've scored at least seven runs in each of their last five games. 

Suarez's 25 inning scoreless streak is the best for a Philly hurler since Cliff Lee tossed 30 2/3 scoreless innings from Aug. 17–Sept. 10, 2011.

The victory extended the Phillies winning streak to seven games. Philadelphia starters have a 0.52 ERA over that stretch.
