Bryce Harper leads the Phillies with 77 hits and 48 RBI, while Nick Castellanos and Rhys Hoskins have combined for 131 hits and 73 RBI. Aaron Nola gets the ball, and he is 4-4 with a 3.11 ERA and 99 strikeouts this season. Nola is 2-3 with a 3.38 ERA and 51 strikeouts in his career against the Padres.
The San Diego Padres have scored 15 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 7 of their last 10 games. The Padres have won 10 of their last 13 games when scoring 4 or more runs.

The Phillies are 7-3 in their last 10 road games and 15-5 in their last 20 overall. The Padres are 7-2 in their last 9 home games and 14-6 in their last 20 overall. The over is 17-7-1 in Phillies last 25 road games. The under is 4-1 in Padres last 5 overall. The Phillies are 39-18 in the last 57 meetings in San Diego.
MacKenzie Gore has been solid this year, but he’s been shaky this month, allowing 17 hits and 14 runs in his last 12.1 innings. Aaron Nola is in far and away better form, which includes allowing 20 hits and 7 runs in his last 29 innings. Nola has a 2.25 ERA and .227 allowed batting average in 48 innings on the road. The Phillies have the edge on the mound based on current form, and they’re playing the better ball overall right now. Give me the road team and the cheap price.
