The Philadelphia Phillies have absolutely owned the San Diego Padres as they have won nine of their past ten meetings. Philadelphia will send Vance Worley to the hill tonight. In his lone road start this season he allowed just one earned run and five hits at Pittsburgh throwing six innings. With Cliff Lee throwing 10 innings last night the Philadelphia Phillies bullpen behind Worley will be fresh tonight and their good arms will be battling an extremely weak hitting Padres team. Worley gave the Phillies a good year in the 2011 season as the right hander was 11-3 in 21 starts with an ERA of just 3.01. Teams batted just .237 against Worley in the 2011 campaign.
The Padres send Joe Wieland to the mound tonight to face Philadelphia. In his lone start this season Wieland was shelled for six earned runs in five innings allowing five earned runs to the Dodgers back on Saturday night. The San Diego offense at home has been atrocious as the club hits just .179 in seven games at Petco Park. San Diego has lost two straight and six of their past seven games. They are 1-8 in night games on the young season. Philadelphia has a better roster, a solid bullpen and a pitcher in Vance Worley who is very capable in shutting down this poor Padres offense.
