The Phillies got beat up in their third and final game in Cleveland over the weekend and head straight on to Washington, where they will play five games in four days before finishing at home against Miami.
The Wild Card is all but over for Philadelphia and all that’s left is trying to spoil Washington’s plans to host the single-elimination game and then simply finishing with a winning record.
The Phils need to win three of their final eight games to do that. They’ll start with Zach Eflin on Monday and throw Aaron Nola in the nightcap of the doubleheader, which is this game.
He’ll matchup with Max Scherzer, who is trying to find his full form before the postseason and a possible Wild Card start.
Thing is, about that hosting, the Nationals may not.
They dropped their final game in Miami on Sunday and fell back into a virtual tie with the Brewers for the top Wild Card spot. The Nationals still hold onto it by virtue of percentage points but they have one fewer win and one fewer loss with these eight games to play.
That may muddy the waters as to who is starting which game.
The Nats would have loved to have their rotation set up and for a long time it looked like they would.
They’re going to play for that home-field though and Scherzer would be scheduled to start the final game of the season, on Sunday against the Indians, who are trying to just get into the postseason themselves.
Fortunately, the Nationals have two other superb options to start that Wild Card game, if not Scherzer.
I imagine getting the home field is first priority and then picking between rested Scherzer/Strasburg/Corbin comes next.
