Why you should back the Padres

San Diego has been in difficult situations multiple times during its playoff run, so the Padres are not going to be fazed by Friday night’s loss. The Padres have an advantage against Falter, who is making the first playoff start of his career. He has not stepped on the mound in 17 days, making this a tough spot for him to succeed in.

Falter allowed three earned runs in just 1.2 innings against San Diego last year, while Clevinger threw five innings of one-hit baseball against the Phillies in May. Clevinger has made plenty of postseason appearances during his career, giving him the upper hand in this pitching matchup. San Diego will be using its best bullpen arms on Saturday night due to the importance of this game, while Philadelphia has more leeway due to its lead in the series. 

Why you should back the Phillies

Philadelphia has less pressure entering this game, as it took control of the series with its Game 3 win on Friday night. Falter isn’t likely to go too deep into this game, while San Diego needs Clevinger to throw at least five innings. The Phillies have more options as far as pitching is concerned, and their lineup has been hot this postseason. 

Designated hitter Bryce Harper is in line to be the MVP of October, racking up 14 hits with four home runs and seven RBI. The Padres have now struggled at the plate twice during this series, with Manny Machado and Juan Soto going a combined 1 of 7 at the plate on Friday. Philadelphia has won four of the last five meetings between these teams and has a chance to pull within one game of a World Series appearance on Saturday.
