Phoenix Suns wing Mikal Bridges is no stranger to a friendly wager.

For the most recent Super Bowl, the diehard Los Angeles Rams fan Bridges bet with teammate and diehard Cincinnati Bengals fan Cam Johnson on the game. Bridges’ Rams won, so Johnson had to run a lemonade stand in Phoenix for over two hours.

Bridges is from the Philadelphia area, and the only reason he’s a Rams fan instead of a Philadelphia Eagles supporter is because he played with the Rams on video games.

Outside of that, he supports the Philadelphia Flyers and Phillies.

Bridges has been back to tweeting about mostly baseball since the Suns’ season ended, and his support comes as the local Arizona Diamondbacks face the Phillies for the first time this season.

With this in mind, the D-backs issued their own bet that Bridges accepted.

Arizona’s three-game series in Philadelphia starts on Friday with Zac Gallen on the bump against Kyle Gibson. That’s a 4:05 p.m. first pitch you can hear on ESPN 620 AM and 98.7 FM HD-2.
