Series Preview: Get a FREE $350 as the Phillies kick off a weekend series with the Washington Nationals
The Philadelphia Phillies kick off a weekend series tonight with the Washington Nationals at 7:05 EST.
Noah Syndergaard (8-9. 4.07) gets the ball for the Phils, going up against Patrick Corbin (6-17, 6.28) of Washington.
The Phillies dropped a tough one on Thursday night, as the Marlins scored two in the top of the 9th inning to win the game 6-5. Although the Phils lost the finale, they did take the series and hold a record of 75-62 going into their series with the Nationals.
The team currently holds a 2.5-game lead over the Brewers for the third wild card spot (3.5 when counting the tiebreaker). Check out where the Phillies stand with a month left here.
The Phillies need to take care of business this weekend, even though the team has hit some roadblocks over the last week. The bullpen has struggled, and the arms of our starting pitching are seeming to die out a tad. Even with all that going on, a sweep shouldn’t be hard, as the Nationals have won just 49 games this season, sitting at a record of 49-89 (40 GAMES under .500) on the year.
