A young and emerging pitching staff was supposed to lead the way for the Phillies but this season it has been the offense that has performed much better.
Big OF Aaron Altherr has been on a power surge of late with 5 homers in the last week and this team is in the upper half in all major offensive categories.
Philly is one of the few teams not dealing with injuries in their rotation.
Nick Pivetta is a rookie making just his third start -encouraging, 11Ks in just 10 IP, discouraging, 18 hits over that span. This will be his second straight start against the Nats.
He gave up 3 dingers to them last week in a 4-2.
The Nats snapped a three game losing streak on Tuesday night and this will be an interesting season as it does not look like they will really be pushed in the NL East.
They are riding high on the backs of a healthy Ryan Zimmerman and Bryce Harper.
They are ranked in the top 1 or 2 in runs per game, batting average, OPS and homers.
The bullpen might have some question marks but the Nats rotations has been excellent this season.
Tanner Roark is definitely looking like he can repeat last season’s breakout when he established career best in all categories.
He has been sharper on the road than at home this season though.

Free Philadelphia Phillies vs. Washington Nationals MLB Prediction:
There will be no rational reason to think the Nats are going to lose this one but that doesn’t mean we won’t find a way to justify Philly when we see the numbers.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Washington -1.5
My hunch is that the ML will be a little too slanted but this will be a good spot to go RL if you are not afraid.
