Imposing, this is how Ranger Suárez looked on Saturday in the Philadelphia Phillies' 6-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals, which keeps them firm in first place in the National League Wild Card.
The Venezuelan pitched 6.0 innings of just one run, walking four and striking out five to earn his third victory of the season and his first since June 27. His ERA was 3.80.

Ranger was winning even before he took the mound, as Alec Bohm put Philadelphia ahead with a streak in the first inning.
One inning later Brandon Mash made it 2-0. And, as soon as Sa Luis scored with one in the third, Philadelphia took off with three in the fifth product of a home run by Kyle Schwarber.
Miles Mikolas took the setback (7-12) by allowing five runs in 6.0 innings.
