Phillies Need To Keep Finding Ways To Win To Claw Way Back In To NL Playoff Picture

Posted by Dale “Skip” Lalonde on 6/7/2013 8:50:42 PM

The Philadelphia Phillies have won five-straight games and seven of their last 10 to climb in to second place in the National League East division. While they may not have what it takes to catch the Atlanta Braves at the top, the Phillies enter this online sports betting weekend just 4.5 games back of the Pittsburgh Pirates for the second Wild Card spot, and can close the gap even further with a win against the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday.

Pittsburgh Pirates @ Chicago Cubs
Saturday, 4:05 PM ET

The Pirates are losers of three-straight heading in to this weekend, and their track record for closing out seasons has not been very good at all over the past couple of years. Pittsburgh should have a favorable match up on the road, but AJ Burnett hasn’t been very good at all away from PNC Park and he faces a tough match up opposite Jeff Samardzija. Samardzija is 3-6 with a 2.96 ERA, and if the Cubs’ offense can solve Burnett early he should be in line for an online sportsbook win.

Philadelphia Phillies @ Milwaukee Brewers
Saturday, 7:15 PM ET

Philadelphia took advantage of a visit from the lowly Miami Marlins to sweep the three-game set, and with wins over the Brewers on either side of that sweep they managed five-straight wins to pull ahead of the Washington Nationals for second place. The pressure will be on the Phillies to keep this roll going, and it won’t be easy with a 10-game road trip that continues Saturday at Milwaukee. Kyle Kendrick is 6-3 with a 3.12 ERA after posting consecutive wins, including his second complete game of the season in a 7-2 win over the Brewers in his last outing. Tom Gorzelanny is scheduled to make his first start of the season as Milwaukee looks for some consistency out of its pitchers, but that’s a sign that they aren’t very deep on options.

St. Louis Cardinals @ Cincinnati Reds
Saturday, 7:15 PM ET

The Reds could still catch St. Louis for the division lead in the NL Central, and that adds a sense of urgency to this weekend’s sports betting series. The Cardinals have been excellent on the road this season, and the play of their young pitching staff is a big reason for it. St. Louis already had a Rookie of the Year candidate in Shelby Miller before bringing up Michael Wacha, and Tyler Lyons is 2-1 with a 2.66 ERA heading in to this contest. Lyons will stand opposite Matt Latos for Cincinnati, who had led the Reds to wins in seven-straight games before a loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates. Latos gave up just one run and was left with the no decision in that loss, so look for him to continue to bring his best stuff and give the Reds a chance to win an important game that will help them in the NL Central race.
