The Philadelphia Phillies host the San Diego Padres on Tuesday, May 17th at Citizens Bank Park. The first pitch in this matchup is scheduled for 6:45 ET. The MLB Odds Board has yet to place odds for tonight’s game.

Recent Form

The Padres come into tonight’s game having yesterday off. Their last game came against the Atlanta Braves, in which they picked up the 7-3 win. Overall, San Diego picked up 2 of 3 games in the series. In their 4 win over Atlanta, Jose Musgrove lasted 6 innings, giving up 2 earned runs. At the plate Will Myers went 2-5 with 3 RBI’s.

Over their 2 most recent series, the Padres have gone 3-3. This includes going just 1-2 against Chicago. However, they were able to bounce back in their matchup vs Atlanta. Aside from being shutout in their first game with the Cubs, the team has swung the bat well of late, averaging 5.5 runs per game between the two series.

The Philadelphia Phillies also come into today’s game, with yesterday scheduled as an off day. In their last outing, the team fell to Los Angeles by a score of 5-4. Los Angeles was able to rally late, with 3 of their runs coming in the 8th and 9th innings of play. As for the Phillies, all of their scoring game in the 2nd inning. This was a waste of Aaron Nola’s strong start, as he went 7 innings giving up just 2 runs.

Despite blowing their final game against the Dodgers, the Phillies still picked up 3 of 4 games vs LA. A key to their success was the team’s outstanding offensive play. Across the series, the team averaged 8 runs per game.

Pitching Matchup

On the mound, the Padres will be looking for Mike Clevinger to pick up his first win of the season, as he has yet to factor into a decision. In his 2 appearances, he has posted an ERA of 5.00. This includes a batting average allowed of .270. He will also be looking to rack up some clean innings, as his WHIP is 1.67.

For the Phillies, Zach Eflin is expected to get the start with a 1-2 record and 4.5 ERA. So far, he has a total of 18 strikeouts across his 5 outings. In his last appearance, Eflin took the loss vs the Mets. This included going 4.1 innings while giving up 5 earned runs. Overall, opponents have a combined batting average of .274 against Eflin.

San Diego Padres at Philadelphia Phillies Prediction

Even though Zach Eflin is coming off a rough start against the Mets, I expect him to bounce back, as the Phillies pick up the win over San Diego. For the year, the Padres have the 20th ranked team batting average at just .228. On the other side, the Phillies recent offensive success is nothing new, as they are the 4th ranked scoring team in the MLB. I recommend grabbing Philadelphia on the moneyline.
