Odubel Herrera is leading the team in batting average…and homers. The latter is a result of a recent power binge, 5 in 6 games, but if the team is really going to stay in the race they need more power from the truly big bats in the lineup. Herrera looks set to have a career season though and might be a sneaky MVP play if the Phillies stay in it.
Zach Eflin has been very useful for Philadelphia this season. However, it is rare that he pitches more than five innings, even if he is pitching well. He is a big guy who looks like he might be figuring it out and if the team stays in the race he is going to be even more of a factor as the season progresses.
Washington is still trying to catch the Braves and have to be wondering when their players are going to start performing. The pitching has been strong but most of the lineup has been a disappointment. I can only imagine how bad things would be is rookie Juan Soto was still ripening in the Minors. He and Matt Adams have been crucial.
With Stephen Strasburg and Jeremy Hellickson injured the Nationals rotation is in flux. This spot looks like it could be Tanner Roark who has been solid but nothing special. They need him to step up. The Nats improved their bullpen big time with the acquisition of Kelvin Herrera.

This looks like a good spot to grab Philly. I know we don’t know the Nats starter but it won’t be Max Scherzer.

Even if it winds up being Roark I can make the case for Philly, especially if you are getting some extra value with them as a road dog.
