Philadelphia is doing their best to hang in there.
They enter the weekend just under .500 and 7 games back of Washington within this series representing a big opportunity to cut into both of those numbers.
The Nationals have built a small cushion over the Mets but that could easily evaporate over the weekend. There should be lot of good pitching.
Tough stretch for Philly this week with hosting the Cubs and then heading to Washington. It is all about the offense and whether they can string together enough wins to be in a position to win.
This team is averaging under 4 runs per game and its lineup is filled with unproven commodities.
I like the look of Maikel Franco but he is not ready to carry an offense.
Aaron Nola has been awesome for Philly lately. Over his last nine starts he has not allowed more than 3ER just once and has taken over the lead role in the rotation from Vincent Velasquez.
He leads the team in ERA, innings, wins and strikeouts. He is the ace and gives Philly a great shot to win on Saturday.
This is his fourth start against the Nats this year – 2 really good, one he got hammered.
As long as the Nationals are respectable at the plate they should be able to stay atop the division. The key still remains finding someone other than Bryce Harper who can do some damage.
Daniel Murphy is hitting .374 but I don’t see that as being sustainable. No other regular is hitting over .266 but it is nice to see that Jayson Werth can still put a charge into the ball. He has 10 homers.
Tanner Roark has been a nice story as the fifth starter has worked his way into the middle of the rotation in terms of production.
He is coming off his shortest outing of the season but he beat the Phillies last week in Philadelphia. He has been a much better pitcher at home this season.
The bullpen has been really good and will back him up.

Free Philadelphia Phillies vs. Washington Nationals MLB Prediction:
Nola is the key in this one. In his last 2 starts against Washington he has given up just 2ER over 13 innings but in his first start against them he gave up 7.
The Phillies are 5-1 when he starts on the road this season and the Washington lineup is manageable.
If you like betting the Nats you have to do it when Roark is on the mound because it is hard to get value when anybody else is out there. His numbers may be solid but the team is 5-7 when he starts and he lost to Nola at the end of April.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Philadelphia ML
I am going to play what looks like the hotter pitcher in Nola and hope they give him enough runs to get the victory.
They need him to stay in the game as long as possible because the Philly pen is not the most formidable.
