Cubs vs. Phillies MLB Pick – August 13th

The Philadelphia Phillies come back home after a difficult weekend against the San Francisco Giants about the west shore. The Phillies lost three of four matches, including a 9-6 loss on Sunday Night Baseball. Bryce Harper had pleasure telling fans to become quiet after a clutch home run in their lone win, however three of four declines is nothing to get excited about. And that’s been the issue with Bryce this year, he might appear and knock into a clutch hit after a month.
That isn’t enough for a man getting his pay. We’re entering clutch year, so ideally for the Phillies, the very best is yet to come with Harper. Like I’ve said before, if he catches fire and contributes the Phillies to a deep postseason run, all will soon be forgotten due to his earlier battles.
If Harper had been playing well all year, the Phillies are probably threatening that the Braves right now. I’d require ten hands to count the number of times he has had an opportunity to break up a game open and he drops short. Pitching wins games in the postseason. Everyone understands that and Bryce along with his 330 million-dollar contract must counter this. In any case, the Phillies need to fret about getting into the postseason.
The Phillies are not going into the postseason if the Wild Card Game has been now. They’re two matches, having the afternoon off yesterday so they weren’t about to improve. The Nationals and Cardinals are currently holding onto leads. It is still anybody’s branch now. The Diamondbacks who traded their genius away are in the mix.
That doesn’t speak to how good the center of the National League isstill. It has been quite awful and the only complete team in the NL to talk of was the Dodgers. The Phillies welcome a Cubs team who are beneath the NL Central by 2 games on the Cardinals. Philadelphia is the next stop on their road trip after a separation in Cincinnati against the Reds.

The Cubs got some positive information on Sunday with the effort by Jon Lester. He showed up and pitched a good game to get out of a funk. Lester was struggling mightily which could be a step in the ideal path . He managed to best ace Luis Castillo and direct the Cubs into a 6-3 triumph.
A split for the Cubs on the street is an improvement. Considering they have a list of 23-35 on the road, .500 is better compared to their overall campaign for a visitor this year. The Cubs will probably likely be on the road for the following six games before return to Wrigley.
They expect to not just win three more games, however. Jose Quintana will likely be tasked with leading the pitching staff for the Cubs this day. He enters with a respectable ERA of 4.23 in 129.2 innings. That is on pace for his career, so no surprises in Quintana.
He has allowed 5 home runs and 15 runs against the Phillies in 139 at-bats. Quintana was slightly worse flying to the road, posting a 4.34 ERA along with 1.41 WHIP on the road. His latest revealing contrary to the Phillies has been a success in a 3-2 win, but that was at Wrigley Field.
Former New York Met, Jason Vargas will look to settle in for the Phillies. Vargas was the only performer who ended up getting moved after all of those rumors for months. No Wheeler or Syndergaard, but just Vargas.
He was sharp in his introduction with the Phillies, allowing two runs contrary to the White Sox at 6.1 innings in the home. It was a separate story for him on the street against the Diamondbacks in Arizona, as he was struck for 4 runs in five innings.
Vargas has played better in the home in 2019, posting a 2.92 ERA and also 1.18 WHIP instead of a 5.23 ERA along with also 1.33 WHIP on the road. The Phillies as a team are better in the home with a list of 34-26. Philadelphia are among the most cold and hot teams at the majors.
Adhering to the display they put on San Francisco, then the general public will likely be on the Cubs here. This is the Phillies, though, and they seem like another team series-to-series. I am about the Phillies as small residence dogs Tuesday night.
