After being crushed Tuesday 15-1 vs. NL East leader Atlanta, Philadelphia enters today’s contest against Washington following a billed Wednesday double header with the Nats.
The Phillies now hold the inside NL wild card track after being overtaken by Atlanta atop the NL East. Philadelphia has dropped its last two series, accruing a 2-5 record since June 9, while struggling defensively.
Aaron Nola (6-1, 4.89 ERA) is listed as Philly’s Thursday probable, but due to scheduling issues, his presence today isn’t set in stone.
However, if he does start, Nola gives the fightin’ Phills an excellent chance from the mound as the All Star helped Philly down Atlanta 6-5 June 15. Overall, through 81 innings pitched, Nola has fanned 90 batters while allowing 45 runs. Further, the Phillies are 9-6 when Nola appears.
Though faulty of late, Philadelphia is still outpacing its pythagorean projected win total by three games. Mid-pack offensively & defensively, Philly is 4-4 this season vs. Washington -with several of those contests going well over the number.
Washington meets Philadelphia tonight after splitting an offensively explosive series against Arizona. In that classic matchup’s finale the Nationals beat up on the D-Backs 15-5 as Matt Adams’ two homers led a well-balanced Nationals attack.
Three time All Star Stephen Strasburg (7-4, 3.75 ERA) gets the call tonight and looks for redemption after a rough June 15 outing which snapped his four-game winning streak.
Strasburg’s last start was blown up by Arizona’s nine hits, six runs and four home runs through five innings.
Washington is 8-7 this year when Strasburg pitches. After ceding six runs April 9 vs. Philly in his lone 2019 appearance vs. the Phills, Washington’s lively bats rescued Strasburg as the Nats claimed victory that afternoon, 10-6.
While their offensive ranking is pedestrian, #15 MLB, Washington tends to score in bunches. More importantly, the Nats scored 11 runs to cap two early April wins over Nola.
