WSH -210 Total 7
The Philadelphia Phillies started the year by winning 3 of 5 games. Since then they've been incapable of playing consistent baseball, enduring a 6 game skid of late. Philadelphia finally found their way back in to the win column, beating Washington 5-3 with a steady and enduring offensive attack. The Phillies need to find more of these wins to get their veteran ball club back in order.
The Washington Nationals have gone 5-7 to start the year. Washington has some legit talent but they've failed to put it together consistently. Washington will try to bounce back and finish off this series with the Nationals by collecting a few wins along the way.
The Phillies got their game started off quick with Aaron Harang dealing and keeping Washington in line. Bryce Harper shot one deep to center field for a double and the team rolled through. Herrera and Utley will set the tone of the offense in this next game, as Philadelphia has struggled on offense all season.
The Nationals had Bryce Harper go deep to continue his hot hitting but they will need more hitting from the rest of the players in the line up. Ian Desmond has been hitting hard from the short stop position while Ryan Zimmerman has been scuffling at 1st base. Zimmerman is a talented hitter who just hasn't turned it on yet.
