Now that all the Phillies’ woes have been dissolved with one visit by the Mets . . .
Yes, we know one 13-run outburst does not a slump break, but the Mets are sending Walter Lockett to the mound Tuesday. And he totes along a career (5 games, 4 of them starts) ERA of 11.42. The 2018 version of the Phils touched him for five runs last August in San Diego.
Not sure the teams will combine for 20 runs again or that the Phillies can post double digits, but we should be safe with a Phils Over and will take a chance on a big run line.
And although four Phils belted four home runs Monday, Scott Kingery was not one of them. He did look good in the leadoff spot (three hits), so let’s assume he is there again and goes yard.
Pick: Phillies Over 5.5 Runs (-112)
Pick: Phillies -2.5 Runs (+176)
Pick: Scott Kingery to Home (+440)
