Maybe seeing the familiar red and white of the Phils will get Hellickson back on track, as he is not pitching well as of late. His past two starts have resulted in 11 runs and 15 hits, and while one of those can be explained by the thin air at Colorado’s Coors Field, there’s no excuse for coughing up five earned runs to the light-hitting Padres. Washington is +153 tonight largely because of Hellickson. Is there betting value in this matchup? Dan Jamison gives his baseball pick.
