On Saturday, July 15, 2023, at 7:05 PM ET, Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia will host MLB Game 2 between the San Diego Padres and the Philadelphia Phillies. San Diego won the last two games to beat the Mets at home and extend their winning run to five games going into the All-Star break. With a record of 43-47 entering Friday, the Padres were fourth in the NL West, 8.5 games behind the division-leading Dodgers and Diamondbacks.

They trailed the Giants by six games for the last National League wild-card spot. On Sunday, San Diego’s offense was boosted by Ha-Seong Kim (run), Fernando Tatis Jr. (two runs), and Manny Machado (two runs, five RBI), who all had two hits. During the game, Machado hit his 14th and 15th home runs for the year for the Padres. Joe Musgrove (8-2) earned the victory after pitching six innings, giving up no runs on three hits, no walks, and seven strikeouts before turning the ball over to the bullpen.

 After being summoned from Triple-A El Paso, Ryan Weathers will make his 12th appearance and 10th start for the Padres in this game. He has a 1-5 record, a 6.08 ERA, a 1.60 WHIP, 15 walks, and 27 strikeouts in 40 innings of major league play this season.

Weathers started his final big league game at home against Cleveland on June 15 but lost. He pitched just 1.2 innings, allowing the Padres to lose 8-6 on the strength of six runs, seven hits, no walks, and two strikeouts. In 6.1 innings over his last three starts, Weathers is 0-2 with a 15.63 ERA, 2.84 WHIP, one walk, and five strikeouts. Weathers’ only brush with the Phillies came on August 22, 2021, while serving in the bullpen at home. He pitched two innings, allowing three runs on five hits, no walks, and two strikeouts as the Padres suffered a 7-4 defeat. Weathers makes his Citizens Bank Park debut in his 29th start and 43rd career major league outing. With Triple-A El Paso of the Pacific Coast League, he is 0-2 this year with a 4.03 ERA, 1.517 WHIP, 18 walks, and 38 strikeouts over 29 innings in six starts.

San Diego Padres vs. Philadelphia Phillies. The MLB pick for this game is the Philadelphia Phillies. San Diego was playing well coming into the All-Star break and had won five of their previous six games, but this pitching matchup didn’t work in their favor. Due to his issues in the majors, Weathers has only pitched a maximum of four innings in a major league game since May 24. It’s terrible news that he failed in his last three outings, allowing a.514 on-base percentage when playing the Phillies in a place where hitters may thrive. Philadelphia was on the run before dropping its final two games before the break, but it should now turn things around. Bet for the Phillies to win the nightcap, thanks to Suarez. The Philadelphia Phillies are projected to triumph 7–4 in the end.
