This game has a lot of steam and I think there is good reason for it. I don't think the D backs should have been +135 this morning. Kelly has been in good form and I worry about Eflin. Eflin has horrible splits to lefties and the Dbacks have a few in the lineup that i think get to him. I think this game is a coin flip and I'll gladly take the Dbacks since they ahve been playing well as of late60%

Love the Phillies at home in this one. The Phillies are a strong play with Eflin on the hill pitching at home. Eflin features a 4-1 home record with a solid 2.10 ERA at Citizens Bank Park. I think Eflin can do enough to limit the Dbacks line up on scoring runs. The cherry on top for me is that D-Backs starter Merrill Kelly struggles on the road where he holds a 3-4 record and a very poor 6.00 ERA, and I expect the veteran Phillies bats to take advantage of the rookie.

I know Kelly's ERA is higher than Eflin but I like Kelly's control of late. He is pitching smarter than he was at the start of the season. This should be a good matchup today.

AZ Snake Pit: Diamondbacks 2, Phillies 0
Merrill Kelly, Andrew Chafin and Greg Holland combined on a three-hit shutout of the Phillies, as the D-backs won their quickest game of the season, in a crisp two hours and sixteen minutes. Kelly allowed those three hits, but walked none and struck out five, as he tossed 72/3 shutout innings in his best start of the year. Chafin got Bryce Harper to fly out for the last out of the ninth, and Greg Holland retired all three batters he faced, getting what I believe is called a "save" [it has been a while...]
Meanwhile, the D-backs did all the necessary scoring in a two-run fifth, on three singles, including an RBI knock by Christian Walker, and a sacrifice fly off the bat of Nick Ahmed.
Phillies Nation: Phillies go for another series win in Wednesday finale with Dbacks
For skipper Gabe Kapler and the Philadelphia Phillies (38-29) tonight's game with the visiting Arizona Diamondbacks (35-33) is important for a number of reasons.
First, it would keep the Phillies at least even with the Braves at the top of the NL East Division standings. The Braves host the Pittsburgh Pirates on Wednesday night and Thursday afternoon, leading into a key three-game series with the Phillies in Atlanta this coming weekend.
Second, it would give the Phillies yet another series victory. Doing whatever it takes to somehow win most of their series has been the club's direction to the top of those standings thus far this season.
The Good Phight: Great Scott: Phillies 7, Diamondbacks 4
Last year, Scott Kingery signed a deal with the Phillies that made it seem like they knew something we didn't. After a strong spring, the team locked him up, and for most of the 2018 season, it was clear that whatever they'd seen just wasn't there anymore. We were left to wonder, then, who Kingery was going to be when he showed up this year among the Phillies' new, more talented roster.
If last night was any indiction, the future the Phillies saw for Kingery may be back.
In the last two weeks, he's hitting .
Phillies Nation: Scott Kingery stays hot as Phillies bouce back to beat Diamondbacks
The Phillies desperately needed a bounce-back victory Tuesday after getting clobbered, 13-8, by the Arizona Diamondbacks Monday night. They did just that as they defeated Arizona 7-4 to move to 38-29 on the season.
Jake Arrieta took the mound for the Phillies, while Jon Duplantier got the start for the Diamondbacks. The Phillies were able to get on the board in the bottom of the second. After two straight singles by J.T. Realmuto and Jay Bruce, Scott Kingery delivered a three-run home run that gave the Phillies a 3-0 lead. It was Kingery's seventh home run of the season:
This man is on fire!
