Phillies drop two of three at Blue Jays

Philadelphia lost 5-3 at home Sunday afternoon against Toronto to drop its second game in three days. The loss moved the Phillies back to second place in the NL East, a half-game behind the Braves. Nick Pivetta took the loss as he gave up two earned runs on four hits with seven strikeouts and two walks over five innings. Carlos Santana paced the offense by going 2-for-4 with a run scored. Aaron Altherr was 1-for-3 with a run, an RBI and a walk. Nick Williams finished 1-for-3 with an RBI and a walk. 

Dodgers propelled by strong Buehler start

Los Angeles is still only 24-28 on the season, but has shown many signs of improvement lately and continued trending in the right direction with a 6-1 home win Sunday over the Padres. Rookie Walker Buehler gave up only one earned run on four hits with eight strikeouts and no walks to earn the win. Max Muncy and Cody Bellinger both hit two-run homers to pace the offense. Chris Taylor went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk and two runs scored. Enrique Hernandez was 1-for-2 with an RBI.

Vince Velasquez (4-5, 4.18 ERA) will start for Philadelphia tonight, while LA turns to Brock Stewart (0-0, 3.72).

MLB Betting Trends

Philadelphia

The under is 10-4 in the last 14 Phillies games. Philadelphia is 1-7 in its last 8 games at Los Angeles.

Los Angeles

The over is 9-2-3 in the last 14 meetings. The Dodgers are 6-2 in Stewart's last eight starts.

Prediction:

Velasquez has shown dominance at times this season, but typically can never make it last. With Philadelphia having to travel out west and Los Angeles staying at home, I'm going to bet on the team playing at a better clip right now and that is the Dodgers. Los Angeles has done well in Stewart's previous starts last year and this year, so I see no reason that can't continue.
