The Washington Nationals will look to keep their slim playoff hopes alive this Wednesday, as they take on the Philadelphia Phillies at Citizens Bank Park in Philly.
I had the Washington Nationals as one of those teams who could have a big second half to the season, but it has just not turned out that way and it looks like even late season heroics from the likes of Juan Soto will likely not be enough to secure a playoff berth.
The odds of the Nationals making the playoffs likely just got worse, as Trea Turner was forced to leave the last game as it looked like he may have been injured during a slide in that game and we do not have a ton of info as to his status at this point.
The Nationals do go with Patrick Corbin here and that should be a bit of a worry for the visiting team here, as he has an ERA closing in on 6 and also has average results against the Phillies individually.
The Philadelphia Phillies are another one of those teams who I had circled to make a second half run at the playoffs, as they have both the pitching staff and batting lineup to earn a playoff spot should they be able to stay healthy.
I am specifically excited about this batting lineup who is slowly but surely getting going and there is really no reason why they should not be one of the better units in the league based on the guys they have on paper.
Bryce Harper also finally broke out of his home run drought in their last game and if he can get going and get back to being a borderline MVP candidate, which we know he has the ability to do, it will propel this Phillies team to the next level.
Zack Wheeler will get the call to the hill here and he is in a nice spot, as he has an ERA around 2 and has been able to turn that into an 8-5 record and with the run support only improving he should be able to win plenty more games down the stretch.

Free Washington Nationals vs. Philadelphia Phillies MLB Prediction:
I have worries about this Nationals team in general, but if they are without Trea Turner for any period of time it is a huge loss. The pitching matchup is also tilted in favor of the home side in a big way, as I expect Wheeler to go out their and be solid.
The Phillies are big favorites here, though, so I am willing to take them on the runline to cover this run and a half spread, as they certainly should have the offense to do that against Patrick Corbin.
