The Philadelphia Phillies look like they are starting to put a run together, and they will look to keep that momentum going this Tuesday against NL East rival the Washington Nationals.
The Phillies enter this game riding a 3 game winning streak, and yes, those wins did come against the Diamondbacks, but it does feel like this team is starting to get hot as they look to make a run at the Braves. Bryce Harper is a big reason this team is starting to get rolling, as he has been slugging the ball recently and really proving why he should have been an All-Star selection this year.
Those type of performances from Harper make this batting lineup super dangerous, as they not only have Bryce, but also guys like Segura, Hoskins and Realmuto who have had solid seasons. The surprising part is that even though they have all these good batters they just have not been able to put up the runs, as they have only scored 586 runs on the season which has them in 15th overall.
Matt Moore will be looking for a bounce back start here on Tuesday, as his last start was not great against the D-Backs allowing 4 runs on 7 hits through 4 innings of work.
The Washington Nationals season is done, as they are now 15 games back in the division and the team’s management has already started planning for the future trading a bunch of key pieces at the deadline for future assets.
The one good thing for the Nats is that their superstar slugger Juan Soto is rounding back into form after a year marred by injuries hitting his 22nd home run of the year just the other day.
Patrick Corbin is another guy who will need to bounce back here, as he also come in off of a rough start against the Marlins where he gave up 6 runs off of 4 hits in just 3 innings of work. He has shown the ability to go deep against good teams recently, though, as just two games back he went 6.1 innings strong against the Milwaukee Brewers, so he does have the talent he has just been a bit inconsistent.

Free Philadelphia Phillies vs. Washington Nationals MLB Prediction:
The Phillies seem like a great value at -115, as I feel they should be bigger favorites here even if their is a discrepancy in terms of starting pitcher. Outside of Juan Soto this Nats batting lineup does not have a ton that would scare Philadelphia, so I do feel like Matt Moore has a decent chance of going deep in this one.
