The San Diego Padres will look to continue to fly-high this 2021 campaign, as they take on an underachieving Phillies team at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia.
San Diego Padres
The Padres are about as good as most people thought they would be and they have not just beaten up on the lower level teams in the division, as their multiple series with the Dodgers prove they can hang with the best.
San Diego has been great lately as well, winning 11 of their last 13 games and at least on paper, the Padres are the far better team here with Yu Darvish heading to the mound and they are deserved favorites in this spot.
It is tough to talk about this young and exciting Padres team without first talking about their young and exciting shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr who despite an early season injury, has just continued producing with a .299 average with 26 home runs.
There is another guy the Padres management must be happy with on offense, and that is Jake Cronenworth who has been a surprisingly solid rookie hitting .282 with plenty of power already putting up 12 home runs.
A lot of people, me included, thought the Phillies would be primed for a run this year, and given their division their season certainly is not over yet, but they will need to get rolling at some point if they want to make some real noise in the postseason.
One nice thing for the Phillies here in 2021 has been the starting rotation who has managed to provide this team with 31 quality starts which ranks them in 11th place in the major leagues and that kind of starting pitching could bode well for them if they make the playoffs.
Bryce Harper is quietly having a decent season hitting .275 and getting on base at a rate of .385 which is making up for the fact that he only has 13 home runs to this point. Rhys Hoskins also has been a nice surprise this year bouncing back in a big way this year hitting 17 home runs already, although he will want to improve upon his .223 average.
The Philadelphia Phillies do not have a starter listed on the board for this one and that is not quite as big of a concern as it is for other teams, as the Philadelphia Phillies have plenty of solid arms who can go out there and have a decent outing even though the Padres have a nice offense on the other side of the equation.

Free San Diego Padres vs. Philadelphia Phillies MLB Prediction:
The San Diego Padres have been hot lately and although I am confident the Phillies will turn their season around at some point, I do not think it is going to be here against a top pitcher like Darvish and a team who is as good as the Padres even though they have home field advantage.
