Washington Nationals TBA / Philadelphia Phillies TBA
The Philadelphia Phillies and the Washington Nationals will be matching up on the MLB diamond Wednesday for game one of their doubleheader.
Monday’s edition of this set was rained out, and so was Tuesday’s—oddly enough—so we’ll have a double-dip on Wednesday.
For Wednesday’s game one, the Phillies will be sending out Zach Eflin in the start. Over his 80.0 innings and 6-6 mark this year, Eflin has a 2.81 ERA with 66 Ks and 19 BBs.
Over on the Nats’ side, they’re going with Patrick Corbin in the game one start Wednesday. Across his 5-5 record and 4.11 ERA this year, Corbin has 94 strikeouts to his credit.
The Phillies are 3-7 in their last 10 road games and 2-5 in the last seven overall.
Meanwhile, the Nationals are 5-1 in their last six versus the NL East and 7-3 in their last 10 home games. Washington is 7-2 in their last nine versus a right-handed starter and 7-1 in their last eight home games versus a team with a losing road record.
Well, maybe someday we’ll get these games in. After two straight rainouts and lots of pitching shuffles, it’s tough to tell who’s going to be on point—especially in a doubleheader.
Realistically, both of these teams have been mediocre lately, but Philly plays pretty well on the road these days. I’m going to go with the Phillies in this one, but realistically staying away.
