It looks like a .500 record may just be good enough to sneak into the National League playoffs. Washington enters the regular season’s final month eight games under.

Patrick Corbin takes the ball on Tuesday’s series opener in Philadelphia and Max Scherzer is slated to start this game.
Scherzer has remained steady for the Nats in his age-36 season. His strikeout rate is the highest its ever been (13.3 per nine innings) but he’s giving up hits (8.9) and walks (3.1) per nine innings.
He hasn’t faced the Phillies yet this year.
The Phillies come into this series at that .500 mark with 30 games played.
Aaron Nola and Wheeler, who oppose Corbin and Scherzer, respectively, to start this series, have been the two best starting pitchers.
Wheeler hasn’t been defeated in six starts (3–0) and has given up just two home runs and 11 earned runs in close to 40 innings.
A strikeout rate of 5.4 per nine doesn’t overly impress but Wheeler balances it out with that low home run rate and just 1.6 walks per nine.

The total will be low — probably 3.5 — but these two aces will duel at the start of this game. Rather than risk the bullpen uncertainty, play this one and feel comfortable neither starter gets dinged.
