The Nationals are under .500 and seemingly too far back…but are they dead. They keep refusing to turnover because about half the time the guy they put on the mound is better than their opponents. In this one they definitely have a great chance to mess with Philly’s season some more. They are a game over .500 on the road too.
Stephen Strasburg has the highest ERA of his career right now but has been reasonably sharp allowed just a couple of earned runs in his last three outings. He can still dominate a lineup though we are not seeing if nearly as much as we used to. He had back to back games against the Phillies in August and was good at home but bad on the road.
The Phillies are having a nice season but it looks more and more like the playoffs are not going to be in their future. Their best opportunity seems to be to catch Atlanta, and they have enough games against the Braves to do so, if they can be strong elsewhere too. This homestand is key with the Nats, Mets and Marlins visiting. Getting on a roll against Washington is a must.
Aaron Nola is awesome. Odds are he does not get much in terms of real Cy Young talk but he is second in the NL in batting average against and WHIP (tied with deGrom on that one). This has been a true breakout for the righty who is 9-1 at home. Even though Strasburg is the biggest name I have more confidence in Nola in this one.

4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Philadelphia ML
Unfortunately I just don’t see him besting Nola. This might be a pitcher’s duel or a relatively easy win. Either way I am going with the Phillies.
