Even Longoria’s solo home run put the Giants ahead 3-2 in the top of the ninth, but Kyle Schwarber, who has +7500 NL MVP odds, answered with a game-tying homer in the bottom half.
Flores also homered for the Giants. Castellanos and Rhys Hoskins connected for the Phillies.

Giants vs Phillies Prediction
The Phillies have been a huge disappointment this season and the heat is turning up on manager Joe Girardi. Fading Philadelphia is the way to go, especially with the Phillies being favored and Junis pitching well for the Giants after being released by the Royals last November.
Pick: Giants ML (+115)
