MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at San Diego Padres Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

The National League Championship Series shifts to Philadelphia as the San Diego Padres look to snatch home field advantage back from the Phillies in Game 3 with All-Star Joe Musgrove on the mound.

San Diego Padres (-110, 7.5) vs. Philadelphia Phillies

Musgrove has allowed just three runs across 35 innings in his last six starts between the regular season and playoffs. On the road this season, he’s posted a 2.79 ERA with 0.8 home runs per nine innings allowed.

The Phillies counter with Ranger Suarez, who’s struggled at home with a 4.27 ERA this season. In six of his last seven home starts, he’s given up at least three runs.

Though Suarez is coming off of a start in which he gave up one run vs. the Braves, he went just 3 1/3 innings with five walks allowed, leaving the game in the hands of the bullpen that had the worst post-All-Star break bullpen ERA in the National League.

The Padres, meanwhile, have had the National League’s best bullpen ERA in the postseason, registering a 2.02 ERA. In the postseason, Phillies relievers have put together a 4.00 ERA.

The Padres are averaging nearly five runs per game on the road and will take a 2-1 series lead on Friday.

The Play: Padres -110
