Philadelphia Phillies vs. San Francisco MLB Prediction:
This is a series between two teams that have been playing well as of late. I feel like it has the making for an interesting series.
Off that bat, I feel more confident with the Giants winning than I do with the Phillies.
To me, this seems like a pretty even pitching matchup. I feel Nola is the better pitcher, but that is no knock on Alex Wood.
Aaron Nola has been good this year, but his numbers have been much worse on the road. Because of this, I expect the Giants to be able to hit him enough to win. I am taking San Fran in this one.
