Bryce Harper and Matt Adams teed off again on Friday night, this time against Philadelphia, after torching Pittsburgh all week.
Vince Velasquez takes to the mound on Saturday and Jake Arrieta meets Max Scherzer in the finale Sunday.
Arrieta’s numbers look good on the open. Of course, they looked better before his last start when he gave up 8 hits and 6 earned to the Marlins before departing with two out in the fourth.
Bryce Harper has hit 3 home runs, driven in 9 and scored 6 runs over his last 4 games. The only problem is that he’s scoring the lion’s share of his RBIs these days.
There was a report — a very inaccurate report — after Adam Eaton re-injured his ankle that he wasn’t supposed to be out long. Well, it’s been over three weeks and he was spotted in a walking boot just the other day.
Harper scored Eaton three times before the injury. He’s still the guy Harper has driven in more than any other National, except for Harper himself. He’s driven himself in a dozen times!
That probably won’t change much until Eaton comes back and Harper can hit closer to the middle of the lineup. In the meantime, at least Matt Adams is crushing.
He’s hit 4 homers in his last 4 games and robbed one, for good measure, in left field on Friday. The Harper/Adams combo surge is directly responsible for Washington’s mini run but nothing about it feels sustainable.
Until the Nats get healthy, their offensive production is going to stay low.

Free Philadelphia Phillies vs. Washington Nationals MLB Prediction: under!
Perhaps the Nats stay hot for one more game. If they do, I’m thinking this is the one that cools them down. Of course, Philly most likely won’t hit Scherzer.
