Score: 1 - 5
Money Line: -144 Philadelphia
Today's winner is Philadelphia over San Diego. This is my LV Strip Move Winner.
Philadelphia has won 13 straight in San Diego and owns a 23-7 overall record over their L30 meetings. The Padres possess the league's worst record at 3-12. They rank near the bottom in a slew of offensive categories, including BA (28th @ .211) and RPG (27th @ 3.27). Outside of Chase Headley, the lineup has no consistency. They send Cory Luebke to the bump. The LH is 1-1 on the season and lost his only start against Philly in his career. The Phillies don't have a top offense either, but have six batters each with 11 or more hits. Roy Halladay gets the nod here. The RH is 3-0 with a 1.17 ERA on 23.0 IP this season. In his career, the crafty veteran is 3-0 when facing San Diego with a mere 1.90 ERA. Philadelphia is 24-4 at Petco Park since it opened in '04. The Padres are 17-43 their L60 games played as a 'dog, 1-5 their L6 games played vs. RH starters, and 1-4 their L5 games played at home. The Phillies are 45-18 their L63 games played vs. the NL West, 43-20 their L63 games played against LH starters, and 41-12 in Halladays L53 overall starts. Take Philadelphia. Thank you.
