15* NL Tuesday No-Doubt Rout on Philadelphia Phillies -108
Philadelphia vs. Arizona,
04/24/2012 21:40 EDT,
Score: 8 - 5
Money Line: -108 Philadelphia
The Philadelphia Phillies are hungry for a win following three consecutive losses. They scored 5 runs in the 9th inning last night in a 9-5 loss to Arizona which could give them some much-needed confidence at the plate heading into this one.
Philly will start one of the most underrated starters in the league tonight. After going 11-3 with a 3.01 ERA and 1.230 WHIP with 119 strikeouts in 131.2 innings last year, Vance Worley has gone 1-1 with a 2.37 ERA and 1.316 WHIP in three starts this season. He simply gets overlooked in this dominant Phillies rotation that features Halladay, Hamels and Lee.
Josh Collmenter has been in a funk in the early going for Arizona. Collmenter is 0-1 with a 10.22 ERA and 1.703 WHIP through three starts this season. He has given up 14 earned runs, 4 home runs and 21 base runners in 12 2/3 innings.
Arizona is 5-20 against the money line after a game where the bullpen was rocked for 5 or more runs over the last 3 seasons. The Phillies are 64-29 in their last 93 after scoring 5 runs or more in their previous game. Philly is 47-19 in their last 66 after allowing 5 runs or more in their previous game. The Phillies are 6-0 in Worley's last 6 starts after scoring 5 runs or more in their previous game. Philly is 8-2 in Worley's last 10 road starts. Take the Phillies Tuesday.
