Philadelphia Phillies vs Cleveland Guardians. The MLB pick for this game is the Philadelphia Phillies.


Cleveland won the first game of this series, but it’s concerning because Battenfield would start here for the first time in more than two months.


He only pitched 4.1 innings in his most recent rehab start, so it’s safe to assume he’ll be keeping track of his pitches this time.


The Guardians’ bullpen was also heavily utilized; they threw five innings in the series’ first game, so one has to wonder how much time they’ll have remaining.


Nola is a skilled veteran who threw well in his most recent appearances. The Phillies’ recent offensive improvements and their edge on the mound should allow them to easily handle this game and secure the victory on trip day.


The Philadelphia Phillies will win to a predicted score of 6-2.
