It shouldn't come as a surprise that Ben Burns won Sunday. After all, since August 1st, he's a JAW-DROPPING 105-56-2 (65%) overall! He's gone 15-7 since Saturday. Having finished "in the black" eight of the past nine months, Burns has generated almost $80K in profit. If you haven't gotten on board yet, clearly you're missing out. You in?
I'm playing on San Diego. After suffering a painful loss on Sunday, the Phillies should be ripe for the picking tonight in San Diego. This is a team that I won with both Friday and Saturday, but their bid for a third straight win failed yesterday when Jonathan Papelbon came in and blew the game, allowing four runs in the ninth.
This is a much better Padres team than the one the Philies swept back in June. That series was contested in Philadelphia. Since being swept there, San Diego has basically been a .500 team. At the time, the Phillies were catching them in their worst stretch of the season.
The Padres have actually been on a major roll at home, winning 70% of the time there going back to the end of the 1st half of the season. They are coming off a 2-7 road trip, but still are on a 10-2 run as a home favorite.
I like San Diego starter Andrew Cashner. He has a 1.54 ERA at home. The last time we saw him was on the road where he delivered seven strong innings and gave up just two runs in a win over the Dodgers. In four starts since returning from the disabled list he has good numbers, he's allowed only 7 earned runs.
I can't say that I like Philadelphia starter Jerome Williams as much. He's allowed 9 runs in 10 innings his last two starts. His ERA on the road is 7.84. 1* free play.
