The Philadelphia Phillies will continue to try and find some form in order to put a playoff run together this Monday, as they take on a division opponent in the Washington Nationals who will look to pick up a big win in front of the home fans.
The Philadelphia Phillies are another team who made some moves at the trade deadline and it ended up paying immediate dividends, as Kyle Gibson went deep into the game in their last contest against the Pirates and based on the roster they have right now Kyle Gibson was a perfect fit.
At the end of the day it did not really matter how well Kyle Gibson pitched in that last game, as the Phillies gave him plenty of run support in his debut putting up a 15-spot in an eventual 15-4 victory. It is not really a surprise to me that the Phillies offense is starting to come alive, as this is a real underrated offense and it was only a matter of time before they started to consistently perform.
Ranger Suarez is the projected starter for this game coming in here with a 5-3 record and a 1.12 ERA, but it is important to keep in mind that he is typically a relief pitcher and not a part of this typical starting rotation.
The Washington Nationals have responded nicely to getting swept by the Baltimore Orioles about a week ago winning 4 of their last 6 since those losses to the Orioles and although this team is not great this year, they have had to deal with some brutal injuries and they will be much better prepared going into next season.
Due to how competitive and tight the NL East division is, this team’s season may not be over despite the fact they are 7 games below .500, as they only trail the New York Mets at the top of the division by 6.5 games so they are within a realistic range to make a run.
The Nationals pitching staff has been middle of the pack so far this year, but they may be at a disadvantage on the mound this Monday, as they send Josiah Gray to the mound who comes in here with a 6.75 ERA and the Phillies batting lineup is no easy task.

Free Philadelphia Phillies vs. Washington Nationals MLB Prediction:
Ranger Suarez may not be able to go too deep into this game, but I expect him to keep things clean early and I would expect the Phillies to be able to jump out to an early lead here and likely get the job done from there.
