Phillies vs. Padres: TV Channel, Time, Prediction, Live Stream, Odds, Starting Pitchers for NLCS Game 3

The Philadelphia Phillies haven’t hosted an NLCS game since they were eliminated by the Giants in Game 6 on Oct. 23, 2010. Nearly 12 years later, on Friday, they’ll finally have another. Expect the ballpark to rock. They will host the San Diego Padres in Game 3 of the best-of-seven series.

The series goes 1-1 heading to Philadelphia. The Phillies struck first with a 2-0 victory in Game 1, thanks to two solo home runs and an outstanding pitch. Game 2 was a bit different. The Phillies took an early lead, but the Padres came back to win 8-5.

Latest odds:

Philadelphia Phillies -105


Musgrove was an All-Star for the first time in 2022 and has led him to a strong playoff run. The right-hander was stellar in New York to close out the Mets in Game 3 of the Wild Card Series and allowed two runs on six hits in six innings in Game 4 against the Dodgers, keeping his team close enough to come back and remove. THE

The only time the Phillies saw Musgrove this season was one of his worst starts of the year. He coughed up six runs on seven hits in six innings and struck out just one on June 23.

Nick Castellanos and Jean Segura have a good record against Musgrove. Kyle Schwarber and Bryce Harper did not, however, Harper now has a record seven straight playoff games with an extra-base hit. He hit .464/.483/1.036 with four doubles, four triples, seven RBIs and seven runs in those seven games.

Suarez was terrible in his final start of the season, but it was the day after the Phillies clinched a playoff spot and they celebrated. Before that, Suarez had a 2.33 ERA in his previous 13 starts. He started Game 1 of the NLDS and only allowed a solo home run to score in 3 1/3 innings of work while striking out five. Of course, he also walked five. Suarez saw the Padres once this year and was great, allowing two runs in 7 1/3 innings.

The Padres’ bats woke up in Game 2. Brandon Drury and Josh Bell had big games, Juan Soto hit a big double and Manny Machado continues to throw a hot bat.


The Padres have a slight edge with the starting pitching matchup — and momentum, if you believe that — but I like the Phillies coming home. It will provide the boost they need, even if it comes late in the game.

To choose: Phillies 5, Padres 3
