Philadelphia Phillies vs San Diego Padres Prediction

San Diego slipped up twice at Coors this week, and I think they’ll find their way back into the win column swiftly. It should be a back-and-forth affair that sees runs on both sides, but with the hosts returning home from an extended road trip, I like giving them a look here Friday night. Back San Diego for this contest.
