San Diego Padres vs. Philadelphia Phillies. The MLB pick for this game is the Philadelphia Phillies.


San Diego had five victories in their previous six games, and they were playing well going into the All-Star break, but this pitching matchup doesn’t suit them.


Since May 24, Weathers has pitched at most four innings in a major league game due to his struggles in the majors.


He struggled in his past three starts, surrendering a.514 on-base percentage; this is bad news when facing the Phillies at a venue where hitters may flourish.


Philadelphia was on a roll before losing its final two games before the break, but it should bounce back today. In the nightcap, bet on the Phillies to triumph behind Suarez. The Philadelphia Phillies will win by a predicted score of 7-4.
