The Oakland Athletics will visit the Philadelphia Phillies in a second game matchup in this MLB matchup from Citizens Bank Park on Sunday Afternoon. The weather is expected to be slightly humid with a decent chance of rain in the forecast. 

Reigning NL MVP Bryce Harper also knocked in a run and Aaron Nola struck out seven to lead the Philadelphia Phillies to a 9-5 win over the Oakland Athletics on Fridaymin game one.

Philadelphia went 82-80 overall and 47-34 at home a season ago. The Phillies averaged 8.0 hits per game in the 2021 season with 3.0 extra base hits per game.

Cole Irvin is slated to be the starter for this one, left handed. Last season he averaged a ERA of 4.24, a 1.33 Whip and 125 strikes.

Oakland went 86-76 overall and 43-38 on the road last season. The Athletics averaged 3.0 extra base hits per game, including 1.2 home runs.

Aaron Nola made his fifth straight opening day start. Chad Pinder hit a solo homer in the fourth.

Kyle Gibson is slated to be the starter for this one, right handed.  He averaged an ERA of 3.71 a 1.22 whip and 155 strikes.

The Athletics are 4-9 in their last 13 interleague games as an underdog and are 4-10 in their last 14 during game 2 of a series. The Athletics are also 2-5 in their last 7 interleague road games and are 7-19 in their last 26 games following a loss. The Phillies are 6-1 in their last 7 games as a home favorite and are 6-1 in their last 7 home games. The Phillies are also 5-1 in their last 6 games vs. a team with a winning % below .400.

The Under is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings in Philadelphia and is 14-2 in the last 16 meetings. Kyle Schwarber should continue to seek efficent production in order to propel this club. 

The Phillies were able to dominate the first one in this matchup and should likely see more of the same success here. I like for the Phillies to have repeated dominance here.
