The Line: Washington Nationals -111 / Philadelphia Phillies -111 -- Over/Under: 8.5
The Washington Nationals and Philadelphia Phillies meet Saturday in MLB action at Citizens Bank Park.
The Washington Nationals look to stay hot after winning 11 of their last 13 games. The Nationals have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in nine of their last 13 games. The Washington Nationals have won seven of their last nine games when scoring four or more runs. Adam Eaton leads the Nationals with 93 hits and 21 RBI while Anthony Rendon and Juan Soto have combined for 172 hits and 119 RBI. Patrick Corbin gets the ball, and he is 7-5 with a 3.34 ERA and 129 strikeouts this season. Corbin is 4-2 with a 3.22 ERA and 41 strikeouts in his career against the Phillies.
The Philadelphia Phillies need a win after splitting their last 12 games. The Phillies have scored 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last nine games. The Philadelphia Phillies have won seven of their last 10 games when scoring four or more runs. Cesar Hernandez leads the Phillies with 96 hits and 40 RBI while Jean Segura and Bryce Harper have combined for 178 hits and 102 RBI. Aaron Nola gets the ball, and he is 8-2 with a 3.74 ERA and 124 strikeouts this season. Nola is 4-5 with a 4.18 ERA and 105 strikeouts in his career against the Nationals.
The Nationals are 15-3 in their last 18 vs. National League East, 4-0 in Corbins last 4 starts and 1-4 in Corbins last 5 road starts. The Phillies are 1-5 in their last 6 during game 2 of a series, 4-1 in Nolas last 5 starts and 26-10 in Nolas last 36 home starts. The Phillies are 1-4 in Nolas last 5 home starts vs. Nationals and 0-4 in Nolas last 4 starts vs. Nationals. The under is 3-1-1 in Nolas last 5 home starts. The over is 4-0 in Corbins last 4 road starts.
Corbin has been lights out lately, allowing three runs in his last 28 innings, but he has a 5.26 ERA and .260 allowed batting average on the road this season. Corbin is also giving up a .252 batting average with three homers in 127 at bats against current Phillies. Nola has allowed two earned runs in his last 29.2 innings, and he has a 2.85 ERA and .232 allowed batting average at home this season. The Washington Nationals have caught fire over the last month or so and have done a ton of damage against their own division, but I'm leaning toward Nola and the Phillis at home.
