Result: Loss

Play over 9.5 runs

White Sox starter Ivan Nova (6-9, 5.23 ERA) has been dominant in his last two starts against Miami and Minnesota. Between those two starts he's allowed just 1 run in 15 innings pitched. That will change today when he toes the rubber at Citizen's Bank Park. The Phillies are making a playoff push and the bats are starting to come alive. Adding to the issues I believe Nova will have tonight is Bryce Harper. Harper is 6 for 13 in his career against Nova. The Phillies will send Jason Vargas (6-5, 4.01 ERA) to the mound. Vargas is making his debut with Philadelphia since being acquired from the Mets. Vargas should help improve the Phillies rotation, at least a little on the back end but he will still give up his fair share of runs. He rarely pitches more than 6 innings and I see that being the case again tonight. Take the over in this one.
