This is a National League showdown between two teams that haven’t been good in some time.
The Washington Nationals look to get things moving after the hot start they’ve had.
The Philadelphia Phillies seem to be turning things around after a rough start
This Washington Nationals team has potential to be a top contender in the NL, and they have started off hot this season.
Daniel Murphy is leading the way after the acquisition from New York.
Murphy is hitting an even .500 with 11 hits, 2 home runs, and 7 RBI’s. Bryce Harper has started the season hitting .250 with 6 hits, 2 home runs, and 5 RBI’s.
Max Scherzer will be seeing the bump for the third time in the young season. The ace is 1-0 on the year with a 4.15 E.R.A. He is responsible for 13 strike outs in his first two starts.
The Nationals look to keep things rolling going into the series with the Phillies.
The expectations on this Phillies team were not very high. But not many people expected them to open up their season by getting swept by the Cincinnati Reds on beginning road trip.
The Phillies have been led in hitting by Maikel Franco thus far. Franco is 11-29 (.379) while totaling 2 home runs, and 5 RBI’s.
I looked for the veteran Ryan Howard to have a bounce back year late in his career, but he has not shown many signs of that. Howard is currently 5-26 (.172) with 2 home-runs and 4 RBI’s.
The clean up hitter has also counted for 9 strike outs so far on the season as well.
The Phillies will be putting Jeremy Hellickson on the mound for his third start. Hellickson was last in action in a victory over the reigning National League Champion New York Mets.
Hellickson currently stands at 1-0 with a 1.54 E.R.A. He has counted for 11 strike outs in his first two ball games this season.
Although this is very early in a long season, the Phillies need to look for some brightness or this season could go downhill very fast.

This Washington Nationals team has a bright future and have the arms to be a contender. Both teams will be throwing their top guys on the mound, so look for this game to be low scoring with a lot of strike outs that these pitchers can produce.

I look for the Nationals to take this game in Philadelphia and I look for Scherzer to begin his Cy Young campaign now that the weather is breaking.
