The Washington Nationals were able to win both games of a doubleheader against the Chicago Cubs on Saturday before wrapping up game four of the series on Sunday afternoon. The last I checked, Sunday’s game was still under a weather delay two hours after it was supposed to start.
The Nationals have been able to win just four of their previous 10 games, putting them 7.5 games back in the National League Wildcard race. They have been streaky with the wood as of late, scoring a total of 34 runs in their previous five games.
They will need to bring the big boy sticks on Monday if they look to get a win against Jake Arrieta.
Right-hander Tanner Roark will take the mound for Washington on Monday, looking to improve his 8-15 record. He has a 4.23 ERA and has been able to collect 141 strikeouts this season.
Roark has struggled against Philly in the past, giving up 31 runs while allowing seven hitters to take him over the fence.
The Philadelphia Phillies will look to rebound after falling 5-10 against the Mets in New York on Saturday. They will wrap up game three of the series Sunday before making the trip home for Monday’s action.
They have a 4-6 record in their previous 10 games and are currently sitting just 3.5 games behind the Atlanta Braves in the National League East. They’ve been able to cross home plate for 20 runs in their previous five games.
Righty Jake Arrieta will be on the hill for Philly Monday, looking to keep his 10-9 record above .500. He has a 3.61 ERA on the season and has been able to send 120 batters back to the dugout feeling like they are still playing minor league baseball.
Big Jake has been impressive in the past against the Nationals, only allowing three batters to have an average over .300 against him.

Free Washington Nationals vs. Philadelphia Phillies MLB Prediction:
This game looks close while staring at numbers on paper. If it were going to be played in D.C., I easily could see it going the other way. However, it’s in Philadelphia and the Phillies simply have more to play for this late in the season.
When you add Arrieta on the mound to the picture, I like the Phillies to win at home in this one.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: OVER 8.5
Tanner Roark has struggled against the Phillies. Along with the 31 runs and seven homers, the projected lineup for the Phillies also has five batters hitting over .313 on the right-hander.
I think that’s something that will continue in this one on Monday.
If Philadelphia hopes to do anything in October, they are going to have to get hot with the lumber. I think this is the game to get a streak going.
