The San Diego Padres will continue in Philadelphia for game two of their playoff series to take on the Phillies. All odds for all games can be found at BetOnline sportsbook.
The Phillies have struggled early on this season, but did manage to get a win vs. the Padres in game one of their series on Friday night. Carlos Ruiz and John Mayberry Jr. both homered for the Phillies who as a team scored 7 runs on 10 hits. Vance Worley struck out 9 over six innings to earn his third win of the season. Roy Halladay has not won in his last 4 starts which is amazing considering how great he his. He will try and get on track tonight against the light hitting Padres.
The Padres’ struggles have been mounting all season and the loss last night to the Phillies was proof of that. Yonder Alonso had 2 hits last night including a home run, but in total the Padres only amassed 7 hits. Clayton Richard had another subpar outing losing his fifth game of the season. The Padres will counter with Edison Volquez who only has one win to show for a good season in which he is pitching to a 2.98 ERA.
Philadelphia is 2-4 in their last six home games, 2-5 in their last seven games overall, and 41-16 in Halladay’s last 57 starts. San Diego is 2-6 in their last eight game two of a series, 1-6 in their last seven games against the N.L. East, and 6-21 in their last 27 road games. San Diego is 3-8 in their last 11 games in Philadelphia.
Yes, the odds are steep, but we like Halladay to get back on track today and for the Phillies to win easily best sports books.
