Score: 2 - 11
Point Spread: -1½/+110 Washington
*3 Star MLB Major MISMATCH* The Philadelphia Phillies have basically packed it up for the season. The Phillies have been a big disappointment this year, and they are playing short-handed right now. Washington is playing their best baseball of the year. The Nationals offense is finally hitting the ball like many expected they would all season. Washington has 7 of their last 8 games. Their loss last night hurt the team, and I expect them to bounce back with a great effort here. Tyler Cloyd isn't effective as a big league pitcher yet, and Jordan Zimmerman is a very high quality pitcher. The Nationals are 20-7 in Zimmeran's last 27 home games. The Phillies are 1-5 in Cloyd's last 6 starts. Take Washington -1.5.
