While Atlanta has been sputtering a bit at the top of the NL East, the preseason — and even current in-season — favorites have been losing ground.
Washington has lost three in a row and five out of six heading into Friday’s game with Philly. It’s been a lull but not one the Nats can’t overcome. This team is way too talented to think it can’t get on a hot run, and there’s a lot of time left.
But the pitching is a little banged up and Dave Martinez hasn’t named a starter for Saturday’s game yet. This is when it would be great if the offense could carry the club for a little bit.
The lineup is capable of as much, just as much as the pitching staff, but it seems, more often than not, the Nationals don’t seem to operate that way.
Philly has done better than Washington has at inching closer to Atlanta, but not as well as it probably wishes it had.
The Phils avoided a sweep against the Yankees and picked up a win in the first game of the series against Washington on Thursday night.
They’ll send Vince Velasquez back to the mound on Saturday after he pitched fairly well against the Yankees the last time out.
He’s looked like a guy who is a budding ace and he’s also looked a little bum-ish at times but I’m starting to feel more confident about him being a consistent starting pitcher at this level.
He’s given up eight earned runs over his last three starts, anyway (19 innings). In those 19 innings, he’s struck out 21.

Free Washington Nationals vs. Philadelphia Phillies MLB Prediction: Philly at home.
Washington is going to wake up sometime, and it could be soon. But I like the way Velasquez is throwing too much to pass on him in this spot.
