This is an important series. Washington actually snuck ahead of Philly just before the break and with that pitching staff you have to give them a shot down the stretch. I like the lineup too but Anthony Rendon is dealing with a hamstring. He is the one guy they can’t afford to lose. They could use more from Adam Eaton who has been mostly a bust since coming from the White Sox a few seasons ago.
Strasburg closed the first half with his best start of the season, 7.2 innings with just two hits and 14Ks against Miami. Conversely, he has one start at Philly this season and it was his worst of the year, the only time he failed to get to even five innings. Overall he has been sharper on the road so Washington is hoping he can the second half off to a good start.
The first half has been eventful for the Phillies. They sucked in June but they are still in the race and if they can get their lineup going they have enough to compete. The now know that Odubel Herrera is lost for the year and so is Andrew McCutcheon. They made a deal for Jay Bruce but I am not sure what else they can do other than hope for Hoskins and Harper to pick it up.
Nick Pivetta has significantly regressed this season. His strikeouts are down and his hits and homers are up. The only saving grace is that despite poor numbers he has been able to get some wins at home, he is 4-1. The bullpen is missing some key arms so the Phillies need to figure things out with the guys they have.
