The MLB is back in action today as the Washington Nationals will clash with the Philadelphia Phillies. The Nats will give the nod to the 29 years old pitcher Patrick Corbin. And on the other side, the Phillies will counter with the 26 years old pitcher Aaron Nola.
Washington Nationals Form
The Nationals are heading into this game with Patrick Corbin as their main frontmen. Moreover, this will be his 19th start of the season. Furthermore, the left-handed pitcher is in a good form as he had 7 shutout innings against Kansas City Royals.
This his first season in our nation’s capital and he already left a great impression.
The Nationals are a good team this season and they will surely have a better season than last year.
On the offensive side of the game, the Nat score an average of 4.94 runs per game which is enough for the 14th spot in the league in scoring. Also, the Nationals have a 4.38 team ERA which is also the 14th record in the Majors.
Philadelphia Phillies Form
The Phillies will start this game with Aaron Nola and this will be his 20th start of the season. Also, it is important to emphasize that he had a good performance in his last game against the Mets as he had 6.2 innings in the win. Furthermore, the 26 years old pitcher has improved his ERA to 3.74 and shows the great potential this season.
On the offensive side of the game, the Phillies score an average of 4.91 runs per game. Therefore, they are placed on the 15th spot in the league in scoring. The Philadelphia pitching record stands at 4.64 team ERA, placing them 19th overall. The Phillies are 28-17 on their home field.
I will take the Phillies in this one. They have the in-form Aaron Nola in this game and surely that will give them a clear advantage. Moreover, the Phillies managed to win the last three games in which Nola was their starter.
On the other side, the Nationals cannot really rely on Corbin much as he has a poor away record this season. Therefore, take the Phillies in this one.
