San Diego is 4-1 in their last 5 games and 19-7 in their last 26 Friday games. The over is 5-1-1 in San Diego’s last 7 road games. Philadelphia is 16-5 in their last 21 Friday games and 18-7 in their last 25 home playoff games. The over is 5-0 in Philadelphia’s last 5 home games. The under is 12-5 in these two team's last 17 head-to-head meetings.
Philadelphia had a great chance to go up 2-0 on the road in their last game, but was not able to hang onto their 4-0 lead. San Diego played great after the top of the second inning, and now they are right back in this series. Musgrove has been pitching very well over his last six starts, and I like the Padres to win this game on the road.
