The Philadelphia Phillies and Washington Nationals face off on Friday in an MLB game at Nationals Park. In the first game of this series on Thursday, it was the Nationals that were able to secure the 10-1 victory. 

The Phillies sit with a 33-31 record overall and they have lost two games in a row. Over the last two games the Phillies have given up only two runs, and they are going to need some good pitching again in this series. Bryce Harper is having a big season hitting 15 home runs and driving in 46 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Nationals who sit with a 23-43 record overall and they have lost five games in a row. They haven’t scored more than five runs in any of the last five games and they need to find a way to get the scoring going here. Josh Bell has been one of the only bright spots of the season hitting eight home runs and driving in 39 RBIs.

On the mound for the Phillies in Game 1 is Ranger Suarez who sits with a 4-4 record and an ERA of 4.40. In his last start against the Diamondbacks, he went 4.1 innings giving up four hits and four earned runs. 

On the mound for the Nationals is Joan Adon who sits with a 1-10 record and an ERA of 6.95. If the Nationals had any other options, Adon’s spot in the rotation would probably be gone. 

On the mound for the Phillies in Game 2 is Bailey Falter who sits with an 0-2 record and an ERA of 4.20. In his last start against the New York Mets, he went three innings giving up four hits and five runs. 

Getting the start for the Nationals is Paolo Espino who sits with an 0-1 record and an ERA of 2.08. In his last start against the Brewers, he went 3.1 innings giving up four hits and one run. 

In Game 1 there is going to be plenty of scoring by both teams. Suarez gave up four runs in his last start and Adon sits with an ERA of 6.95. Look for both offenses to run up the score, and this game will go over the total. 

In Game 2 it’s going to be the Nationals that pull out the victory. Espino has a low ERA of 2.08 and he will slow down the Phillies bats enough to get the job done here. Back the Nationals on the money line.
