The San Diego Padres and the Philadelphia Phillies will meet again to play the Game 3 of the National League Championship Series at the Citizens Bank Park on Friday night.

Probable Pitcher: Joe Musgrove (10-7, 2.93 ERA)
Musgrove will be on the mound in the 3rd game of the series for the Padres. Musgrove pitched great in his last start against the Dodgers allowing only 2 run across 6 innings. He has a record of 2-1 with an ERA of 3.00 and 27 strikeouts in 5 appearances versus the Phillies in his career.
The total has gone OVER in 9 of San Diego's last 12 games.
San Diego are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games.
San Diego are 2-4 SU in their last 6 games against Philadelphia.
The total has gone OVER in 6 of San Diego's last 7 games on the road.
The total has gone OVER in 4 of Philadelphia's last 6 games.
Philadelphia are 6-2 SU in their last 8 games.
The total has gone UNDER in 12 of Philadelphia's last 17 games against San Diego.
The total has gone OVER in 5 of Philadelphia's last 5 games at home.
The Padres cameback from losing 4-2 and pounded Aaron Nola to beat the Phillies 8-5 but this time they will play in Philadelphia and face Ranger Suarez who held them to only 2 runs across 7.1 innings pitched earlier this season. Joe Musgrove will take the mound for the Padres who has been pretty good lately but has struggled against the Phillies in his career. The Citizens Bank Park will be extremely loud and the Phillies haven't slowed down the offense so I think they can win this game.
