On the mound, they have some poor stats as they are placed on the 26th spot in the league in ERA at 4.86, while also ranking 23rd in WHIP at 1.39 and 17th in K’s with 548.
Philadelphia Phillies Form
The Philadelphia Phillies are going through a bad patch lately. They have lost seven of their last nine games and their offence was not up for the task in those games. They head into this game after winning the first game with a score of 5-4. The Phillies have averaged 4.77 runs per game and they have allowed 3.61 runs per game here at home so far. Nick Pivetta record against the Rockies stands at 0-1 with a 27.00 ERA in one start.
On the offensive side of the game, the Phillies have some below average stats as they are placed on the 22nd spot in the league in scoring, putting up 4.19 runs per game, while also holding the 27th spot in hitting at .230 and 23rd place in homers with a total of 65 so far.

The Rockies are one of the better teams on the road this season. On the other side, the Phillies have been dominant at their home field. The first game between these two teams was very tight and I expect more from the same. However, it seems that the Phillies are on the up lately and I think that they will come out on top in this game. Go for the Phillies.
