The Philadelphia Phillies need a win after losing six of their last eight games. The Phillies have scored 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five straight games. The Phillies have split their last eight games when scoring more than three runs. Ben Revere leads Philadelphia with 57 hits and 16 RBI while Ryan Howard and Chase Utley have combined for 51 RBI. The Philadelphia Phillies have lost six of their last eight home games. Sean O'Sullivan takes the hill, and he’s 1-4 with a 5.03 ERA and 19 strikeouts this season. O'Sullivan is 1-1 with a 2.25 ERA and nine strikeouts in his career against the Giants.
The Giants are 4-0 in their last 4 road games vs. a right-handed starter and 5-1 in Vogelsongs last 6 starts. The Phillies are 7-19 in their last 26 during game 3 of a series and 2-5 in O'Sullivans last 7 starts. The Giants are 6-1 in the last 7 meetings in Philadelphia.
The Phillies remain unbackable, while the Giants simply can't lose lately on the road. With Vogelsong on the hill, I like the road team and the small chalk.
