The Philadelphia Phillies were rocked at Camden Yards as the Baltimore Orioles won the three-game series with ease. The Phils struggled defensively after surrendering eight runs to the Orioles. In the last two games, they gave up a total of 14 runs.

The Phils are back home at Citizen's Bank Park as they square off against the San Diego Padres. The Padres seem to be in a tougher position after being swept against the New York Mets.

The Padres seem to have issues with their pitching lineup. In this game, Randy Vasquez will be sent out to the mound as their starting pitcher. The issue with Vasquez is getting command over the ball. The pitcher has a poor 4.93 ERA with a 1-3 record.

The Phils will try to take advantage of his opportunity as they turn in Cristopher Sanchez to strike out opponents. Sanchez pitched against the Red Sox in his last outing, which eventually led to a loss. However, when compared to Vasquez, Sanchez has better numbers. The starter has a 3.07 ERA with a 3-3 record.

Phillies vs. Padres Prediction

Defensively, the Phils rank at No. 3 with a 3.17 ERA. They have one of the best pitching units as they lead the MLB with the most number of strikeouts at 658. The Padres are ranked at No. 17 with a team ERA of 4.00. Their pitching staff is no match for the NL East opponent.

From the offensive end, the Padres seem to be falling behind again. With 77 home runs, the Padres have recorded 333 runs this season. The Phils have 80 home runs with 355 runs. The Padres cannot win this game with the help of their offense alone.

Sanchez is a decent pitcher but will still need support from the plate. With Vasquez as their opponent, this should be an easy opportunity for the Phils to rebound. The baseball betting odds are in favor of the Phils to win Game 1.

Prediction: Philadelphia Phillies -1.5 (-175)
