Phillies vs Padres Prediction
The Phillies are coming into this game as a slight favorite with the current betting odds. They have not been playing well recently as their bats have been cooling off after going on a very hot streak. They are going up against a Padres team that has one of the best records in the MLB right now and has been scoring a lot of runs in their games. The Phillies have Nola starting in this game though and he has been very good all season after a rough start. He has been pitching very well and is barely allowing many runs in their games and should be able to do enough here to stunt the Padres offense. The Padres have Gore starting here and he has also been having a great season but the Phillies have a very experienced lineup that will find ways to take advantage of this rookie pitcher so this could end up being a long day for him out on the mound. Nola could turn this game into a pitching duel and if that happens then Gore cannot be trusted to hold down a lineup like the Phillies have. The best bet here is on the Phillies to win this game.

"I think that's what it was. I've just got to go on after that, and just cut down the inning quicker. ... My command was off, just felt a little off in general." - Zack Wheeler after their loss against the Rangers on Wednesday.
"I was just happy I was out there. It was a rough 10 days. I'm glad we won, obviously. But just getting back in this ballpark. It's one thing to watch it on TV and you miss the excitement and the fans and all that goes on here. So to be able to get in the dugout and kind of see all that again and get a win on top of it was great." - Bob Melvin after his team’s win against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.
