The Phillies are starting the week in last place, just behind the Nationals. Now being behind the Nats wouldn’t be so bad if the defending champs were playing better but they aren’t. This is not what the Phillies were signing up for when they brought in a new manager and shortstop in the offseason.
That shortstop, Didi Gregorius has been a positive, contributing to an offense that is fourth in the league in scoring. He can’t pitch it though. The Phllies are 28th in team in ERA this season.
Jake Arrieta is trying to age gracefully. He has his moments – six shutout innings against Atlanta – but those ar hard to determine these days. He is a long way from his elite days and the Phillies just hope he keeps them in the game.

The Nationals might be depending too much on their ability to “wake up” and start playing better baseball. Sure they have done that in the past but last year’s team was better than this year and repeating that kind of performance is tricky. It puts a lot of pressure on things.
Washington is valuing at bats – 3rd in batting average, but they have only translated that into 15th in scoring. Juan Soto is awesome but they need some other bats to emerge. Adam Eaton has been pretty useless this season and Howie Kendrick has not produced much to go with his solid average.
This looks like Patrick Corbin’s spot in the rotation so I am not sure why that has not been announced. Assuming so that gives the Nationals a great chance at a win. He has been their most effective starter this season.
***This just in*** Fedde returns to the mound for the first time since Aug. 14, after his last start was postponed because of rain. He is 2-1 with a 4.22 ERA in five games (four starts) against the Phillies.

Free Philadelphia Phillies vs. Washington Nationals MLB Prediction:
Fading Arrieta has to be the call here. I have burned by the Phillies a bunch of times this season so at some point I have to move on from them. Need Corbin to be good enough to get the run line though.
