Philadelphia Phillies will open in July, just as it closed in June.

With an aggressive explosion.

Philadelphia wants to maintain momentum when hosting the St. Louis Cardinals at the opener of the three-game series on Friday.

The Phillies hit the Atlanta Braves 14-4 on Thursday, beating five home runs, including the first two in Rookie's Da Rick Hall career. The Philadelphia explosion ended 19-8 months.

Kyle Schwarber, Nick Castellanos and Rhys Hoskins also hit short-handed Phillies home runs playing without injured players such as Bryce Harper and Jean Segura.

Hall said in a post-match interview with NBC Sports Philadelphia: I was happy.

Hall hit 20 home runs in the Triple A Lee High Valley before choosing his contract in time for Wednesday's match.

"I'm overjoyed at everything now," he said.

All players in Philadelphia's starting lineup produced at least one hit on Thursday. Phillies recorded a total of 13 hits. This was a big boost following the wristless effort of losing to the Braves 4-1 on Wednesday.

"Everyone has to tip and step up, and they did that," said interim manager Rob Thomson.

Acquiring a particularly valuable free agent Castellanos. The 2 to 4 effort was highlighted by a 3 run home run.

"I think he will come," Thomson said. "I'm saying that lately. He's making progress."

Bailey Falter (0-) because Zach Eflin was sent off due to a knee injury. 2,4.50 ERA) will leave for Phillies on Friday. Falter has never faced a Cardinal in his short career.

The Cardinals appear to rebound after losing 4-3 to the Miami Marlins on Wednesday. As a result, St. Louis was unable to dominate the three-game series.

Cardinals relief player Ryan Helsley provided Avisail Garcia with a two-run home run in the bottom of the ninth inning with two outs.

"That's baseball," Helsley said. "As you know, you can make the best pitches, give up hits, make the worst pitches, and get out of it, so learn from it, go ahead and start another streak."

Garcia's home run was Helsley's first player to give up in 25 appearances and 30 2/3 innings this season.

Edmundo Sosa brought the Cardinals an unexpected spark with two hits and two runs against the Marlins ace Sandy Alcantara. Sosa made a hit in a series of games. Until Tuesday, he had tolerated a 0-16 slump and hadn't collected any hits since June 4th.

"He got a really good turn at bat," said Cardinals manager Oliver Marmol. "He continues to bring energy and life, whether or not it's in the lineup, but it's a difficult role to play as long as he's done. He took a turn at bat (Tuesday) and Do the same for Sundi, which is impressive. "

Cardinals expects Nolan Gorman to return to the lineup on Friday. Second baseman missed the last two games due to a bruise on his left hand.

"He continues to be treated, then (Friday) try some swings and see how it feels," Marmol said.

Cardinals hands the ball to Miles Mikolas (5-5, 2.57 ERA). Right-handed players are 1-0 with 4.15 ERA in three career games with the Phillies and two starts.

In the last four starts, Mikolas pitched to 1.55 ERA, but with no offensive support, these outings were 1-2.
