The Nationals appear destined for the post-season at this point, leading their NL East Division by nine games and sitting second overall in the National League.
Daniel Murphy has been the driving force behind the offence, which is scary to think about when Bryce Harper gets going to the level he can.
Gio Gonzalez will take to the hill for the Nats in Philly, entering with a 9-9 record and a 4.25 ERA this season. While he’s not the stud starter he once was earlier in his career, he is still effective and should be able to tame the weak Philly lineup and get to double digit wins for the 7th consecutive season.
Sitting in fourth place in the same NL East Division, and 16 games back of the Nationals, Philadelphia is out of it this year.
They’ve managed to find some nice bats in Odubel Herrera and Maikel Franco, and they hope that Micky Moniak will be the stud OF they drafted him to be 1st overall this year.
On the pitching side, there is also a decent stable of young arms but maybe not one true stud in the bunch as of yet. Vince Velasquez, Jerad Eickoff, and Aaron Nola are all promising young arms, and Jeremy Hellickson could return a decent bat back.
Adam Morgan will take the hill here, though the young lefty is having a rough sophomore season with a 6.50 ERA and 1.61 WHIP with 1-8 record.
