The Nationals and Phillies meet on Wednesday afternoon for the finale of a three game set at Citizens Bank Park.
On Monday night, the Nationals topped the Phillies 4-3. Both starters pitched well for the two teams. Tanner Roark got the win for Washington after giving up two runs on four hits in seven innings. Jeremy Hellickson gave up three hits and one run in seven innings.
Daniel Murphy’s single in the eighth inning scored two to put the Nationals ahead.
Murphy also hit a solo homer in the fourth inning.
The Nationals are led by Murphy who leads the league with a .394 batting average to go along with nine homers and 34 RBI.
Washington also has Bryce Harper who many consider the best player in the National League. Harper is only hitting .242 but he has 13 homers and 34 RBI. The 23-year-old is seventh in the National League in on base percentage (.415).
On the mound for the Nationals is all-star Max Scherzer. Scherzer is 5-4 with a 4.05 ERA this season.
The Nationals are only 6-5 in Scherzer’s starts this year. On the road he is 3-3 with a 3.77 ERA this year.
The Phillies have exceeded expectations a bit by beginning the year 26-25. A key has been their trio of starters, Vince Velasquez, Aaron Nola, and Jeremy Hellickson.
Philadelphia’s offensive attack is led by Odubel Herrera who is hitting .319 with five homers and 17 RBI. Maikel Franco is batting .247 with eight homers and 28 RBI on the year.
