Preview: Phillies take the field vs the Nationals at 4:05 with the series on the line
The Phillies take the field today at 4:05, looking to win their 3-game set against the Washington Nationals. Bailey Falter (0-2, 4.88 ERA) gets the ball for the Phils, going up against Joan Adon (1-11, 6.97 ERA).
Kyle Schwarber continued to mash the baseball on Wednesday night, but even that, alongside another Aaron Nola gem wasn’t enough, as the Phils fell 3-2 to the Nats. Lackluster defense and 16 strikeouts led the way, as the Phillies now sit at 43-39 on the season.
Today’s afternoon game should be a win for the Phils, as long as the offense decides to wake up. Washington is set to throw a pitcher with 11 losses and a 6.97 ERA, who holds an 8.44 road ERA. Adon’s last start was back on 6/17 against the Phillies, where he allowed seven hits and four earned runs in 5 innings.

Bailey Falter is 0-2 on the season with a 4.88 ERA, with a 1.42 WHIP in 24 innings.

Falter went four innings in his last start, allowing five hits and three earned runs. The Nationals have not won a game that Adon has pitched since April 19th, racking up 10 straight losses with him on the mound.

Phillies Starting Lineup
Lineup Notes: The powder blues are back. Vierling gets the nod at third, and Moniak plays center. Darick Hall is the DH.
The Phillies need to absolutely destroy Adon today, and I think that’s exactly what they do. Hoskins HR, Schwarber HR, Hall HR. Phils win 9-3.
