The Philadelphia Phillies come to San Diego leading the National League East. I think they’ll open this series with a win behind right-hander Aaron Nola (6-0, 4.18 ERA). Nola is 4-0 with a 2.96 ERA over his last five starts and he has posted a 2.65 ERA in five career meetings with the Padres. He is 1-0 with a 2.25 ERA in two starts at Petco Park.
San Diego hands the ball to left-hander Eric Lauer (4-4, 4.45 ERA) who has been hot lately compiling a 1.50 ERA over his last three starts. I just don’t see him outdueling Nola though, and we can note that San Diego has struggled to provide run support for its pitching staff all season long averaging only 3.93 runs per game (3.45 rpg home at Petco Park).
The Phillies are 13-15 on the road this season but 6-0 in Nolas last 6 starts overall and 6-2 in his last 8 road starts. The Padres are 4-11 in their last 15 home games vs. a team with a losing road record.
