Ranger Suarez
Ranger Suárez showcased his mastery on the mound, tossing aa complete game seven-hitter that led the Philadelphia Phillies to a decisive 5-0 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday night. 

Suárez's dominance was evident with eight strikeouts and just one walk, marking the majors’ second complete game of the season. 

It was a memorable night, as Philadelphia secured its first shutout since Michael Lorenzen’s no-hitter against Washington on Aug. 9. 

Reflecting on his stellar outing, Suárez mentioned through a translator, “Everything was working well today.” 

Bryce Harper played a crucial role in the Phillies' offense, contributing with an RBI double in the sixth inning and a powerful two-run homer in the eighth. J.T. Realmuto also joined the home run parade with a two-run shot, cementing Philadelphia's commanding win and boosting their record to 10-8, a notable achievement as they reached two games over .500 for the first time this season. 

Suárez, now boasting a 3-0 record, demonstrated top form by throwing 112 pitches, including an impressive 79 strikes, securing his second career complete game. 

Phillies manager Rob Thomson praised Suárez's command and performance, highlighting his ability to generate quick outs. Meanwhile, the Rockies struggled throughout the game, dropping to a 4-14 record for the season, including a dismal 2-10 record on the road. 

Looking ahead, the Phillies aim for a sweep on Wednesday at 6:05 p.m. when they face right-hander Ryan Feltner. Feltner previously shut them out over 5⅔ innings last April but faced a different outcome in a subsequent matchup in Colorado. The Phillies counter with Cristopher Sanchez.
