The Philadelphia Phillies will look to make up ground in the division this Tuesday, as they head to Nationals Park in Washington D.C. for this matchup with the Nationals.
Philadelphia was expected to be a playoff contender this year and although they have a big win in their last game scoring 15 runs, they still only have 2 wins out of their last 6, so they have not exactly been making up any ground on the Mets who sit atop the NL East.
This team is now also dealing with some key injuries as Rhys Hoskins is still a doubt for this one and his offensive output is a huge loss for this team, as he already had 23 home runs and 63 RBI on the season.
The Phillies did make a move at the deadline picking up Kyle Gibson who has been great this year and this team will certainly be hoping he can carry over his form and add to an already solid starting rotation.
It does feel like it is going to have to be the offense to carry this team if they are to put a playoff push together, and although they have not been as good as many people thought, they still do have time to get rolling, as they only sit 3.5 games back of the Mets.
The Washington Nationals look like they have their eyes firmly to the future as they were sellers at the deadline which is not a position I thought they would be in if I were asked this past offseason.
These Nationals have dealt with plenty of injuries though, and they will likely be a force in the NL East for many years to come, so I do not think Nats fans have too long to wait before they see the playoffs yet again.
The Nationals will send Patrick Corbin to the mound here who is just coming off of a brutal outing against these Philadelphia Phillies, as he gave up 8 hits and 4 runs over the course of that last start.

Free Philadelphia Phillies vs. Washington Nationals MLB Prediction:
The over looks like the play here, as the number is not all that high, and it is tough to project Corbin to have success here based on his performance last time out and over the season as a whole. These teams also have great offenses on paper, even if both sides are not where they currently want to be, and the weather has been awfully good for the guys swinging the bat, so I can certainly see this one going over the 9.
