Philadelphia Phillies vs San Francisco Giants

I’m rolling with the Phillies here. Hicks and Nola have pitched against similar competition and neither starter has really been tested up to this point because of that, but the thing is that Hicks faces a stiff test against a Phillies team that’s crushing righties right now, while the Giants haven’t been hitting all that well against righties as of late, meaning I think Nola keeps his run going here. I think the Phils get it done and draw first blood so give me Philadelphia in this one.
