This series has the chance to be a very entertaining one. Both of these are in the same division and are looking to gain ground on the Mets. I like Washington in game 2.
I do feel the Phillies are the better team, but I am not convinced they will win this one. I look for the Nationals to play better in this series after getting swept by the lowly Orioles.
I do feel that Erick Fedde is the better pitcher and he can outpitch Matt Moore in this game.
I will take the Nationals as +110 road underdogs in this one.
