The Line: Philadelphia Phillies -135 / San Diego Padres +115 -- Over/Under: 7.5
The Philadelphia Phillies and San Diego Padres meet Saturday in MLB action at Petco Park.
The Philadelphia Phillies could use a win here to snap a four-game losing streak. The Phillies have scored six runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five of their last seven games. The Philadelphia Phillies have lost six straight games when scoring three or less runs. Cesar Hernandez leads the Phillies with 62 hits and 28 RBI while Jean Segura and Rhys Hoskins have combined for 115 hits and 65 RBI. Aaron Nola gets the ball, and he is 6-0 with a 4.18 ERA and 74 strikeouts this season. Nola is 2-2 with a 2.65 ERA and 35 strikeouts in his career against the Padres.
The San Diego Padres could use a win after losing five of their last seven games. The Padres have scored 11 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five of their last seven games. The San Diego Padres have lost 10 of their last 12 games when scoring three or less runs. Eric Hosmer leads the Padres with 65 hits and 34 RBI while Manny Machado and Franmil Reyes have combined for 98 hits and 55 RBI. Eric Lauer gets the ball, and he is 4-4 with a 4.45 ERA and 49 strikeouts this season. This will be Lauer’s first career game against the Phillies.
The Phillies are 5-1 in their last 6 during game 1 of a series, 23-47 in their last 70 Monday games and 6-0 in Nola's last 6 starts. The Padres are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 1 of a series, 11-24 in their last 35 Monday games and 1-4 in Lauer's last 5 starts vs. National League East. The Phillies are 1-5 in the last 6 meetings in San Diego. The under is 3-1-1 in Lauer's last 5 starts overall. The over is 10-2 in Nola's last 12 starts overall.
Nola has allowed three or less earned runs in each of his last eight starts and finished the month of May with a 2.73 ERA in 33 innings with 42 strikeouts. Lauer has allowed three earned runs in his last 18 innings and has a 2.67 ERA at home this season in 33.2 innings. Both of these pitchers are on top of their game, but the difference is the Philadelphia Phillies offense is far more trustworthy and due for a breakthrough performance after some recent struggles. Nola has also won 21 of his last 30 games as a favorite. Give me the Phillies and the reasonable price.
