Recent Form

The Washington Nationals come into the game hoping to pull off another upset, as they took down the Phillies by a score of 3-2. Before the win, the team has dropped 6 straight games. This includes being swept in a 4 game series vs Miami. In last night’s win, Josiah Gray worked 6 innings, giving up just 2 runs and striking out 11 Phillies batters. Luis Garcia drove in 2 of the team’s 3 runs.

The Philadelphia Phillies will look to bounce back from yesterday’s 3-2 loss and pick up the series win vs Washington. In last night’s contest, Aaron Nola was cruising through the game before being tagged for 3 earned runs in the 8th inning. Philadelphia’s offense could only must 2 runs on 4 hits vs Josiah Gray and a combination of 3 Washington relief pitchers.

If Philadelphia hopes to pick up their 2nd straight series victory, they will need a win in today’s game. Previously, the Phillies took 2 of 3 games vs the Cardinals. Currently, Philadelphia sits 8 games behind the division-leading New York Mets.

Pitching Matchup

This season, the Washington Nationals have continued to stick with Joan Adon, despite having a record of just 1-11 and ERA of 6.97. Adon will be taking the mound for the first time since June 17th. In that outing vs the Phillies, he gave up 4 runs across 5 innings. All season long, Adon has struggled with command, having just 50 strikeouts compared to 36 walks.

For the Phillies, left-hander Bailey Falter will take the mound with a record of 0-2 and an ERA of 4.88. So far, Falter has appeared in 8 games, 4 of which came as the starter. So far, he struggled with the long ball, giving up 6 home runs across just 24 innings of work. Currently, Falter has a WHIP of 1.42.

Heading into today’s NL East matchup between Washington and Philadelphia, the Phillies are the heavy favorite to pick up the win. On the season, the Nationals have won just 1 time with Joan Adon as the starting pitcher. Look for Phillies bats to come to life vs the struggling young pitcher. I like Philadelphia to cover the runline.
