At 3:05 pm, in Game 1 of the doubleheader, our selection is on the Philadelphia Phillies over the Washington Nationals.  It's been a yo-yo type of season for Phillies RH ace Aaron Nola.  Two starts ago on September 11, Nola had his best outing of the season, tossing seven scoreless innings, allowing three hits with 10 strikeouts and no walks in an 11-0 rout of the Marlins.  But the 27-year-old followed that up last time out with a clunker against the Mets, allowing five runs in 5 1/3 innings.  And that's the type of campaign it's been for Nola so far -- a good start/bad start pattern for the most part.  That bodes well for this afternoon affair against the Nats in Game 1 of a DH.  What also bodes well for him is his winning record and 3.56 ERA in 10 starts covering just under 56 innings here in DC.  Last night's loss here ended what had been a six-game winning streak for the Phillies over the Nats -- all this season.  The Nats will go with RHP Austin Voth (7.17 ERA; 1.67 WHIP) and they are 5-14 (-13 games on the moneyline) in his 19 starts.  Even worse:  they're 10-27 against righty starters (-22 games on the moneyline) this season.  Take Philly.  As always, good luck...Al McMordie.
