Phoenix Suns’ Mikal Bridges wins bet with Arizona Diamondbacks
The Arizona Diamondbacks Twitter account is going to become a Mikal Bridges appreciation account later this summer.
The MLB team lost a bet over the weekend with the Phoenix Suns wing, resulting in the team agreeing to have a “Mikal Bridges Appreciation Day” on its Twitter account when the Philadelphia Phillies come to Chase Field Aug. 29-31.
The Diamondbacks had made a bet with Bridges, a Phillies fan, that the team would have the appreciation day if the Phillies beat Arizona in the 3-game series over the weekend.
If the Diamondbacks would have won the series, Bridges would have had to come to a game in a full Diamondbacks uniform.

The Phillies won the series, 2-1.
Philadelphia opened the series with a 7-5 win on Friday and followed it up with a 4-0 win over Arizona on Saturday.
The Diamondbacks won Sunday’s series finale, 13-1.
Too bad Arizona didn’t make the bet on which team would score the most runs in the series.
Bridges and the Diamondbacks had some fun on social media throughout the series.
