The Washington Nationals have climbed their way back into the hunt in the NL East and they will now look to continue on their positive run of form against a talented, but under-performing team in the Philadelphia Phillies.
The Nationals are 7-1 in their last 8 games and they have been getting things done with their pitching staff allowing on 10 runs over their last 5 games and if they can continue on with anything close to that they will easily find themselves in the playoffs this year.
That is of course unlikely, but there is still a pretty solid batting lineup to help put up some runs when the pitchers are not so good, as they are hitting .248 as a team which has them in 7th place overall.
That offense could get a whole lot better as well, as they are due regression in terms of their batting with runners in scoring position and you feel that it is only a matter of time before Juan Soto finds his form and he, as well as this whole team, gets hot down the stretch.
The Nationals have yet to list a pitcher for this contest and with this pitching staff being pretty top heavy, I would keep a close eye on who they decide to start because that will shift the odds drastically for this contest.
The Phillies would like to get on a roll here, as they have been a bit up and down as of late, but their postseason hopes are still very much alive, as they are only 4 games back of the New York Mets for first place in the division.
This is another batting lineup you expect to get hot at some point, as they have so much talent from top to bottom, but they have just not been able to consistently score runs as of yet. One guy to look out for is Bryce Harper who does not have incredible numbers as of yet, but certainly has the ability to get very hot very quickly and lead this team to a division title.
The Phillies go with Zack Wheeler here and that will likely put them ahead in terms of the pitching matchup here, as Wheeler has been nothing short of fantastic in 2021 entering the contest with a minuscule 2.25 ERA.
