The Philadelphia Phillies look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Phillies have scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last eight games. The Phillies have won four straight games when scoring more than three runs. Ben Revere leads Philly with 85 hits and 19 RBI while Ryan Howard and Chase Utley have combined for 61 RBI. The Philadelphia Phillies have lost five of their last eight home games. Sean O'Sullivan takes the hill, and he’s 1-5 with a 5.34 ERA and 29 strikeouts this season. This will be O'Sullivan’s second career game against the Brewers.
The Brewers are 7-1 in their last 8 during game 1 of a series and 5-15 in Nelsons last 20 starts. The Phillies are 3-7 in their last 10 games as a home underdog and 4-1 in O'Sullivans last 5 starts. The Brewers are 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Philadelphia and 0-4 in the last 4 meetings overall.
Both teams are terrible. We all know it. However, the Phillies have had success lately with O'Sullivan on the hill and have played their best ball at home. I'll take the plus money here and roll the dice with one of the worst teams in the league.
