Philadelphia Phillies vs Arizona Diamondbacks Prediction

The Arizona Diamondbacks are a good enough team to give a serious look in the big underdog role. However, the Phillies have a clear pitching edge with Zack Wheeler on the mound. Tommy Henry has been a mess in a limited role with an ERA over 6, while Wheeler has an ERA under 3 in a larger sample size, and he’s been even better at home. I have to side with the Phillies, and I’ll take the RL to shave down the heavy juice.
