This is an 8* on PHILADELPHIA

After losing a "marathon game" (went 15 innings) Friday night, the Phillies bounced back to beat the White Sox 3-2 last night. Truthfully, this should have been a much easier series for Philly as Chicago came in having won only four games since the All Star Break. Also, only two teams (Miami and Detroit) have scored fewer runs than the White Sox' 439 this season and they are without the DH here at Citizens Bank Park. Over their last seven games, the Sox are scoring an average of 2.3 runs/game and batting .203. So they would seem to be a "safe" opponent for Drew Smyly to continue his resurgence. Since coming over to Philadelphia, Smyly has been a much better pitcher with a 0.69 ERA in two starts as he's allowed one run in 13 innings. Similarly, Reynaldo Lopez has pitched much better of late for Chicago. But he's got a far lousier team backing him up. The White Sox are 16-31 in day games this year. The Phillies are 24-13.
