Philadelphia Phillies DFS SPIN
Brandon Marsh went 1-for-3 with a single and a walk as the Phillies were shut out by the Padres on Tuesday evening in San Diego. As a team, the Phillies tallied just two hits on the night — both of them singles — while drawing six walks. Marsh, Edmundo Sosa and Kyle Schwarber each reached base twice in the contest, but the Phillies were unable to manufacture a single run against Pedro Avila and company. On the season, Marsh is now hitting an outstanding .292/.385/.469 with nine homers, 49 RBI and eight stolen bases in 401 plate appearances.
San Diego Padres DFS SPIN
Xander Bogaerts went 4-for-4 with a double and three runs scored on Tuesday night as the Padres walloped the Phillies in San Diego. Bogaerts doubled in the fourth inning, then came around to score on a throwing error by second baseman Bryson Stott. He then drove in a run with a run-scoring single in the sixth that extended the Padres’ lead to 4-0, before scoring on a fielder’s choice off the bat of Matthew Batten. He also led off the eighth inning with a single and scored the game’s final run on a sacrifice fly by Matt Carpenter. With his four-hit effort, the 30-year-old shortstop is now slashing .272/.342/.413 with 16 homers, 48 RBI and 14 stolen bases through his first 134 ballgames with the Padres.

Phillies vs. Padres MLB BETTING PREDICTION
Give me Philly. Over his last five starts (33 innings), Wheeler is 2-1 with a 3.27 ERA and 3.11 FIP. Wacha, meanwhile, is 3-0 with a 2.91 ERA over his last four starts (21 2/3 innings), but his 4.46 FIP over that span indicate he hasn’t pitched as well as his ERA would suggest. Both offenses are swinging the bats well at the moment, but the Phillies still have the edge there and in the pen.
