Preview

The Philadelphia Phillies and the Washington Nationals will play the 2nd game of the series at the Nationals Park on Friday afternoon. The Phillies outscored the Nats 10-1 in the first of the series.

Philadelphia Phillies

The Phillies get to this game with a 33-31 record and have won 8 of their last 10 games. The team is averaging 4.8 runs per game while allowing 4.3 runs. Bryce Harper leads the team with 15 home runs and 46 RBI batting for .316 avg.

Zack Wheeler allowed one run and four hits in seven innings against the Nats and leads the team with a 2.69 ERA, 78 strikeouts and 6 wins recorded for the Phillies.

Probable Pitcher: 

Bailey Falter (0-2, 4.20 ERA) will take the mound in the 2nd game of the series for the Phillies. The Phillies plan to call up Falter from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to start one game of Friday's doubleheader in Washington.

Washington Nationals

The Nationals get here with a 23-43 record and have lost their last 5 games. The team is averaging 4.1 runs per game but allowing 5.7 runs. Josh Bell has a batting average of .290, 8 home runs and 38 RBI. Juan Soto leads the team in home runs with 13.

Josiah Gray leads the team with a 4.33 ERA, 69 strikeouts and 6 wins recorded for the Nationals.

Probable Pitcher: 

Joan Adon (1-10, 6.95 ERA) will start for the Nats in the 2nd game of the series. The Nationals plan to call up Adon from Triple-A Rochester to start the first game of Friday's doubleheader with the Phillies. He'll be back with the Nationals after being relegated to Triple-A earlier this month after going 1-10 with a 6.95 ERA, 1.76 WHIP, and 44:35 K:BB in 55.2 innings over 12 starts.

BETTING TRENDS

Philadelphia are 9-0 SU in their last 9 games against Washington.

The total has gone OVER in 13 of Philadelphia's last 15 games on the road.

The total has gone OVER in 9 of Washington's last 9 games against Philadelphia.

Washington are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games at home.

Prediction

The Phillies destroyed the Nationals on Thursday and have won 12 of their last 14 games and scoring an average of 6 runs per game in their last 10 games. They have dominated the Nationals as they have won the last 9 head to head games and will face Joan Adon who has been awful this season. You can expect another blowout on this game as the Phillies offense is hot right now and the Nats bullpen is suffering. Take the over.

PICK: Over 10.5 (-110)
