Padres vs Phillies


The San Diego Padres have started the season with a strong performance, as they were able to bounce back from the loss of star player Fernando Tatis Jr.

The Padres' offensive numbers aren't exactly stellar, as they're currently 10th in the league with a combined offensive output of 4.6 runs per game. The team is hitting a collective .228 with a combined .680 on-base percentage.

On Wednesday, former Cy Young award winner Blake Snell will make his season debut for San Diego. Snell's been inconsistent throughout the early games of the season, and he was 7-6 with a 4.20 ERA in 27 starts last year. If Snell can regain his old form, he could help the team's pitching staff, which is currently ranked 16th in the league.


The Philadelphia Phillies were unable to get anything going against the Padres pitching staff on Tuesday night, as they managed to only record five hits. After a recent four-game winning streak, the Phillies have lost their last two games.

Coming into this series, the Phillies were averaging around eight runs per game. They've been led by the impressive performances of their players, such as the emergence of Alec Bohm and the continued success of star player, Bryce Harper. Harper is currently on the disabled list due to an elbow injury.

After struggling through the first three months of the season, Zack Wheeler has started to look like a different pitcher. In his last start, he was able to limit the Los Angeles Dodgers to three runs over 5.1 innings.
