San Diego, California
The Line: Philadelphia Phillies +138 / San Diego Padres -167 -- Over/Under: 7.5
The Philadelphia Phillies and San Diego Padres meet Tuesday in MLB action at Petco Park.
The Philadelphia Phillies could use a win here to snap a five-game losing streak. The Phillies have scored five runs in their last three games and three or less runs in six of their last eight games. The Philadelphia Phillies have lost seven straight games when scoring three or less runs. Cesar Hernandez leads the Phillies with 62 hits and 28 RBI while Rhys Hoskins and Jean Segura have combined for 117 hits and 65 RBI. Jerad Eickhoff gets the ball, and he is 2-3 with a 4.10 ERA and 43 strikeouts this season. Eickhoff is 3-0 with a 1.96 ERA and 27 strikeouts in his career against the Padres.
The San Diego Padres look for a victory after splitting their last 10 games. The Padres have scored 14 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five of their last eight games. The San Diego Padres have lost five straight games when scoring three or less runs. Eric Hosmer leads the Padres with 66 hits and 34 RBI while Manny Machado and Franmil Reyes have combined for 100 hits and 60 RBI. Chris Paddack gets the ball, and he is 4-3 with a 2.40 ERA and 62 strikeouts this season. This will be Paddack’s first career game against the Phillies.
The Phillies are 4-11 in their last 15 vs. National League West, 4-13 in Eickhoff's last 17 road starts and 5-2 in Eickhoff's last 7 starts. The Padres are 2-5 in their last 7 overall, 4-1 in Paddack's last 5 home starts and 7-3 in Paddack's last 10 starts. The Phillies are 1-5 in the last 6 meetings in San Diego. The under is 5-0 in Paddack's last 5 home starts. The under is 6-2 in Eickhoff's last 8 starts overall.
Eickhoff has allowed four or more runs in each of his last four games and has given up 10 homers during that span as well. No, thanks. Paddack is coming off a poor performance on the road against the Yankees, but he has a 1.42 ERA and a .139 allowed batting average in 31.2 innings at home this season. There also isn't a Phillies hitter who has faced Paddack, so that certainly can't help the visitors break out of this odd offensive slump they've been in lately. I'll take the San Diego Padres and the somewhat reasonable price.
