The Nats slip into this evening’s matchup sporting a 41-37 record that ranks them 3rd in the NL East. Currently 3 ½ games behind the division leading Atlanta Braves, the Nats can still vie for the lead in the NL East. All in all Washington has had a pretty successful season. However, considering that they’re 4-11 in their last 15, it’s pretty clear the club is amidst a slump. And since the Nats just got swept by Tampa Bay 11-0 and 1-0, it doesn’t look like they’ll be breaking out of it anytime soon. Nevertheless, Tanner Roark will get the start from Washington this evening. Roark s 3-8 on the year and will be vying to improve on his 4.27 ERA as well as his 1.24 WHIP.
Players to Watch: Anthony Rendon (9 HR, 31 RBI, .284 BA), Matt Adams (13 HR, 36 RBI, .275 BA), and Bryce Harper (19 HR, 46 RBI, .219 BA).
The Phillies tumble into this Thursday night pairing sporting a 42-36 record that ranks them 2nd in the NL East. Currently 2 ½ games behind the Braves, Philly will be trying to bridge that gap tonight. They’ve had a shot to do so in the past weeks, particularly in their 3-game series versus New York. But in the end, the Yanks proved too tough for Philly as they got the best of them 2 games to 1. Aaron Nola will be sent to the mound tonight. He’ll be bringing a 9-2 record as well as a 2.58 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP with him.
Players to Watch: Odubel Herrera (13 HR, 45 RBI, .294 BA), Maikel Franco (10 HR, 38 RBI, .258 BA), and Rhys Hoskins (12 HR, 46 RBI, .252 BA).
