Latest odds:

San Diego Padres -1.5

Advance

Nola so far has followed a very good regular season with a great postseason. He has gone 12 2/3 innings without allowing an earned run, allowing only nine hits and three walks against 12 strikeouts. He was better on the road (3.00 ERA) than at home (3.53) during the regular season. On June 24, he faced the Padres in San Diego and allowed one run on seven hits in seven innings with 10 strikeouts.

Surely the Padres would like to get more traffic on this one after only one hit and two walks in Game 1. As a reminder, they lost Game 1 in the last round and then beat the Dodgers with 111 wins in three straight games. to get to this point. .

Many will remember that it was an errant pitch by Snell that broke Bryce Harper’s thumb on June 25. There’s not likely to be any bad blood there, but the broadcast will be sure to remind everyone of the first time those two squared off.

Snell had a 2.19 ERA with 105 strikeouts in 78 innings in 14 second-half starts. He only lasted 3 1/3 in his Wild Card Series start, thanks in large part to six walks, but he was excellent against the Dodgers in their NLDS start (5 1/3 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 2BB, 6K). In fact, he’s been a bit worse at home than on the road overall, but it’s not a hard and fast rule here — take note of the two playoff starts so far. Snell faced the Phillies twice this year and only lasted 9 1/3 innings while pitching with a 6.75 ERA and a 1.50 WHIP.

Harper has been ridiculously good throughout the playoffs and that continued into Game 1. Schwarber had been brutal in the first two rounds, but the leadoff hitter was 2-for-3 with a home run and a walk in Game 1, so maybe maybe you’re waking up. That would be bad news for the Padres.

Prediction

The Phillies are really well set up here with Nola and the bullpen hasn’t worked too hard in Game 1, but I think we’re in for a long series and the Padres find a way to fight back. The deeper in the game southpaw Snell can last, the better chance he has of limiting damage from Schwarber and Harper as well.
