The San Diego Padres were able to tie the series in Game 2 after coming back from a 4-0 deficit and winning 8-5. San Diego defeated the New York Mets and the Los Angeles Dodgers earlier in the postseason. The San Diego pitching staff has a 2.96 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, and a .201 opponent batting average this postseason. The Padres' offense has scored 39 runs with a .233 batting average and a .304 on base percentage. Manny Machado is batting .306 with three home runs and six RBI for the Padres this postseason. The projected starter for San Diego is Joe Musgrove, who is 1-0 with a 1.38 ERA and a 0.85 WHIP over 13 innings pitched this postseason.

The Philadelphia Phillies defeated San Diego by a score of 2-0 in Game 1 of the series. Philadelphia defeated the Atlanta Braves and the St. Louis Cardinals earlier in the postseason. The Philadelphia pitching staff has a 2.96 ERA, a 0.99 WHIP, and a .189 opponent batting average. The Phillies' offense has scored 39 runs with a .220 batting average and a .289 on base percentage this postseason. Bryce Harper is batting .419 with four home runs and seven RBI for the Phillies this postseason. The projected starter for Philadelphia is Ranger Suarez, who is 0-0 with a 2.70 ERA and a 2.40 WHIP over 3.1 innings pitched this postseason.

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.
