Washington is 0-5 in their last 5 Wednesday games and 15-57 in their last 72 games against the NL East. The under is 9-4 in Washington’s last 13 games. Philadelphia is 22-9 in their last 31 games and 12-5 in their last 17 home games. The under is 4-1 in Philadelphia’s last 5 game two’s of a series. The over 12-2 in these two teams last 14 head to head meetings.

Philadelphia came out and absolutely dominated Washington in Game 1 of this series on Tuesday night. Washington will try to answer with Josiah Gray on the mound, who allowed six runs over 5.2 innings in his last outing. Philadelphia will go with Aaron Nola, who has allowed five runs over his last 14 innings of work. Washington has really struggled lately and I don’t see it turning around in this game. I like Philadelphia to win by two runs.
