Philadelphia Phillies vs San Diego Padres NLCS Game 2 10/21/2022 Picks Predictions Previews


The San Diego Padres will go against the Philadelphia Phillies in NLCS Game 3 action in Citizens Bank Park, PA, on Friday, October 21, 2022, at 7:37 PM ET.


Although San Diego will be disappointed to lose the home-field advantage, the Padres will also be appreciative for not dropping both two of their home games to start the series.


In Game 1, they struggled to generate any offense, and they entered Game 2 on Wednesday down 4-0. From the bottom of the second inning until the bottom of the seventh inning, San Diego’s offense exploded, scoring eight runs in a row.


Both Josh Bell, the designated hitter, and third baseman Manny Machado both got three hits in the victory. In 36 at-bats in the playoffs, Machado has a team-high 11 hits, including three home runs.


Joe Musgrove, a right-handed pitcher, will start for San Diego on Friday night. His regular season performance was outstanding, finishing 10-7 with a 2.93 ERA and 184 strikeouts. He somehow improved even more throughout the postseason.


He faced the Mets and pitched seven shutout innings, giving up just one hit, one walk, and five strikeouts. Musgrove has a 1-0 record with a 1.38 ERA in those two matches after allowing two runs on six hits and three walks over 6 innings last week against the Dodgers.


  • The total went OVER in 9 of San Diego’s last 12 matches. 
  • The San Diego Padres are 4-1 SU in their last 5 matches. 
  • The San Diego Padres are 2-4 SU in their last 6 matches against Philadelphia.

Philadelphia Phillies vs San Diego Padres NLCS Game 2 Predictions 10/21/2022


Zach Wheeler, Philadelphia’s starting pitcher, had an excellent outing on Tuesday, which helped the team win the series opener and potentially take a 2-0 lead.


With a 4-0 lead after the second inning on Wednesday, the Phillies were well-positioned to add another victory. They will need to start fresh going into Game 3 on Friday after their offense went cold and their pitchers labored the rest of the way.


No other player on the roster has more than 7 hits in the eight postseason matches, with designated hitter Bryce Harper leading the club with 13 hits and seven RBIs in 31 at-bats.


Ranger Suarez, a left-hander, will get the start for Philadelphia in this contest. In his only playoffs debut against Atlanta, he gave up one earned run on three hits and five walks.


It was his first playoff start ever. Suarez concluded the regular season with a 10-7 record, 3.65 earned run average, and 129 strikeouts against 58 walks. He has a stellar career record versus San Diego, finishing 2-0 with a 1.64 ERA, six strikeouts, and four appearances.


  • The total went OVER in 4 of Philadelphia’s last 6 matches. 
  • The Philadelphia Phillies are 6-2 SU in their last 8 matches. 
  • The total went UNDER in 12 of Philadelphia’s last 17 matches against San Diego.

San Diego Padres vs Philadelphia Phillies. The MLB pick for this game is the San Diego Padres. One of the top starters in the majors this season, Musgrove, improved even more in the postseason. His two playoff starts had a combined 1.38 ERA, and he has a solid lifetime record versus Philadelphia.


Last week, Suarez had his first career postseason appearance, but he labored to reach the back of the net and does not possess nearly Musgrove’s level of experience in crunch situations.


Although playing at home is a benefit for the Phillies, it is not nearly as significant as it is in other sports. The San Diego Padres will win to a predicted score of 6-4.
