Chi White Sox vs. Philadelphia, 08/02/2019 19:05 EDT, Score: 4 - 3

Point Spread: -1½/-100 Philadelphia

Sportsbook: PinnacleSports

Result: Loss

The Philadelphia Phillies are in a dog fight with a handful of teams for the two Wild Cards in the American League. They flexed their muscles with a 10-2 romp of San Francisco Thursday night, and I think we'll see any easy win for the home team here at Citizens Bank Park Friday night.

Ivan Nova (6-9, 5.23 ERA) will toe the slab for the visiting Chicago White Sox. The 32-year-old righty is coming off back-to-back quality starts against Miami and Minnesota, but both at home. Nova has been tagged with 10 runs on 16 hits over 10 2/3 innings of work in his last two starts away from home, and he owns a 5.12 ERA in 12 road starts on the season. Phillies' right fielder Bryce Harper is 6-for-13 with two home runs in his career off Nova.

The Phillies hand the ball to veteran left-hander Jason Vargas (6-5, 4.01 ERA) for his team debut after joining from the Mets. Vargas won each of his last three starts with the Mets while holding his opponents to six runs over 17 2/3 innings of work.

White Sox are 5-22 in their last 27 interleague road games. Phillies are 21-5 in their last 26 home games vs. a team with a road winning % of less than .400. White Sox are 1-5 in the last 6 meetings.
