The Philadelphia Phillies losing streak extended to five games after a 10-1 shellacking by the visiting Chicago Cubs on Friday night.  

Phils’ starter Ranger Suarez was chased after a sluggish two innings.  Suarez struggled with his command again walking three Cubs and allowing four earned runs in his outing.  The lefty’s ERA has ballooned to 10.50 on the season in six innings pitched.  

Chicago starter Marcus Stroman kept the Phillies off balance during his six innings.  The 32-year-old struck out four and scattered three hits and one run during his outing.
