Astros have the pitching advantage in each game, but the Phillies are at home where they have yet to lose this postseason. The off day with the rain out yesterday will definitely give the Phillies the advantage because now they have the option to pitch Zack Wheeler in an elimination game in Game 5 if there is one. Otherwise, they would likely have Noah Syndergaard start at home and save Wheeler from an elimination game in Houston. Ranger Suarez will get the start and honestly, he is the exact type of pitcher the Astros hit well. They crushed him for 6 ER in 3 IP when they faced him the last start of the season. Lance McCullers Jr. really struggled in his last outing against the Yankees, and this is still only his 11th start of the season. The Phillies back end of the bullpen is rested so I think if they are able to get it to their bullpen while the game is still close, they will be able to pull it out with their bats. I like the value on the Phillies at home.
