New acquisitions were in the middle of Philadelphia’s 4–2 win over the Cubs on Tuesday.
Nicholas Castellanos got Jason Vargas in the sixth and final inning of his outing with a solo home run that tied the game, 2–2. Jose Quintana shut the Phils down in the bottom half of the inning to assure Vargas wouldn’t factor in the decision.
It wasn’t until the seventh that Andrew Knapp came all the way around from first base to score the decisive run on JT Realmuto’s two-out double.
Blake Parker, who pitched a scoreless top of the seventh, got the win. Mike Morin and Hector Neris worked the eighth and ninth, respectively.
That was game one of the series. Cole Hamels faces Aaron Nola on Wednesday before Darvish and Smyly in this one.
Yes, Drew Smyly, the former Tampa Bay Ray, Detroit Tiger, and Chicago Cub. He was a good-looking young lefty for Tampa Bay but, as it does, Tampa Bay traded him at the right time. He got hurt as Tiger and the Cubs gave him a chance. It didn’t work out.
It used to be that guys got let go when they could still pitch but it doesn’t happen as often anymore, especially not with the Cubs. I don’t believe Smyly is going to do much to help a needy Philadelphia staff. It started well for him in July (13 IP, 1 ER) but it hasn’t been good since (10.2 IP, 9 ER).
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Under is 8-3-1 in CHC last 12 road games.
- Over is 5-2-2 in CHC last 9 overall.
- Over is 5-2-2 in CHC last 9 on grass.
Free Chicago Cubs vs. Philadelphia Phillies MLB Prediction: Darvish.
Darvish has figured it out. It hasn’t been a total transformation but he’s improved and he should be able to win this game on the road. I don’t think Smyly, or whoever comes after him, is going to fool the Cubs.
