I'm recommending a play on the Phillies with Aaron Nola over Dan Straily (game-1 of the doubleheader). Since June 21, the Phils are just 23-30. However, during the same stretch they're 7-4 when Nola toes the starting rubber, which shows just how effective he's been. Nola held 10 straight opponents to 2 runs or less before a rough outing in SFO last time out. I'm more of the belief it was an anomaly and not a sell sign. The fact is, he was cruising along for the most part, before a bad 5th inning. The righthander is back home tonight where the Phils have won each of his last three home starts and five of his last six. Nola has allowed just 5 earned runs, 33 base runners, with 52 strikeouts in those six starts, spanning 42 1/3 IP. That's a smoking-hot, 1.06 ERA, 0.78 WHIP, and 11.06 K's per 9 IP ratio. Dan Straily has watched his team lose each of his last seven starts and he's receiving little help from his offense. It's hard to imagine he'll get the likely required help tonight. Straily isn't eating up innings, failing to pitch six full in all but one of his last seven starts. The righthander's numbers on the road have not been good since the start of the 2014 campaign and not much has changed this season where his ERA sits north of 4.6. With a potential pitching mismatch on hand, we'll recommend a play on Aaron Nola and the Phillies on Tuesday (game-1). Thanks & GL! Scott Spreitzer.
