Last we saw the San Diego Padres, they were celebrating their shocking NLDS triumph over the 111-win Dodgers on Saturday night.

Padres starting lineup, NLCS Game 1, October 18

The Padres really need Juan Soto to wake up at the plate if they want to advance to the World Series. On the bright side, he has had some success against Phillies starting pitcher Zack Wheeler — 11-for-38 with 11 walks and two homers. Josh Bell is 8-for-26 with two home runs against Wheeler. One of those shots came earlier this season while Bell was still on the Nationals. Macahdo is 2-for-8 with two singles, one walk and zero K’s against the 2021 All-Star hurler.
