Starter Jared Eickhoff will pitch on Sunday for the Phillies and, despite having a loss to his name already this season, hasn’t pitched poorly. He had a 1.98 ERA but has 13 strikeouts through 13.2 innings of work.
The Phillies have struggled defensively, allowing over five runs per game. The team has already had an outing against the Mets where it allowed 14 runs.
Offense has been decent, but hit or miss at times. The Phillies have had a wonderful performance where the team put up 17 runs against Washington earlier in April. Left fielder Howie Kendrick has been the high point at the plate, batting .343 with five RBIs.
Washington will send starter Gio Gonzalez out to the mound. Gonzalez has looked great through his first 13 innings of the season, allowing just two runs, grabbing 13 strikeouts, and giving up just a single walk. He has a 0.98 ERA.
Offensively, second baseman Daniel Murphy has been a monster so far. He is batting a ridiculous .444 with two homeruns and 10 RBIs. He has 20 hits, including six doubles.
Catcher Matt Wieters and first baseman Ryan Zimmerman are both batting in the high .300s, combining for four homeruns and 11 RBIs, making the top of the order absurdly dangerous for the Washington Nationals.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Philadelphia is 3-13 in last 16 road games
- The UNDER is 8-2-1 in last 11 meetings between Philadelphia and Washington
Free Philadelphia Phillies vs. Washington Nationals MLB Prediction:
The top of the order for Washington could win this game by themselves, especially if they can get Eickhoff into trouble early. I like the Nationals to get the W on Sunday.
