THis seems like a great under spot to me. Paddack has been on fire this year and while he's on a pitch count (basically has been all year) he can pitch through 6 innings. I really like Velasquez for DFS reason because this padre team strikes out a ton and has a lot of right handed batters which is Vince's specialty striking out righties. Both these teams have been very uninspiring offensively and I just don't think these guys are getting to double digit runs tonight.
Philly looks like they want to make another push to make the playoffs but with how tight that division is I still can't get a line on who's going to do what. However I do think Philly carries the energy and momentum into tonight from last nights big win and handle this 1st game of this series.
Philly is coming off of a huge win on a walk off Granny from Harper and I think they will ride that high in this one. The Padres just lost one of the key pieces and the guy at the top of their order in Tatis Jr. The Phillies are 7-3 in Velasquezs last 10 home starts and 13-5 in their last 18 home games vs. the Padres.
