The Washington Nationals and the Philadelphia Phillies start a weekend series on Friday night at Citizens Bank Park. It should be a good pitching game in this one.
The Washington Nationals have had a great start to their season, and they look like a team that could be winning the World Series come October.
The Nationals strength is at the plate. They average a whopping 6.48 runs per game which is best in baseball. Every night they seem to get to the opponents early and that has helped them to the best record in the National League.
On the mound for the Nationals is Stephen Strasburgh.
He has looked really good this season but has done it in a different way. He has been letting more balls get put in play rather then striking out ten every night.
No one had many expectations coming into the season for the Phillies so their 12-14 record should come as no surprise to anyone.
They actually are tied for second place in the National League East.
Now they probably won’t get a playoff berth this year but they are showing the future can be bright.
To win this game they need to get the bats going early. When Strasburgh has struggled opponents have gotten to him early, so they need that to happen to have any shot.
