Will the Nationals Attempt to Burst Phillies Playoff Bubble?
After an active trade deadline as sellers, the Nationals will look to their newfound youth in the second half of the season and hope to find some pieces in their farm system that are worth building around. After acquiring Josiah Gray from the Los Angeles Dodgers at the last trade deadline, the move is starting to pay off. He’s been a valuable piece of what the team will do in the rotation moving forward.

SS Luis Garcia
DH Nelson Cruz

Will the Phillies Continue Beating up on Lowly Nats?
The Philadelphia Phillies are in the thick of things in the National League Wild Card playoff race. They’ll need to continue stringing together victories against lackluster competition like the Nationals. The Phillies will be up against one of the more consistent arms on the Nats in this matchup, which could give you pause in looking towards them in this game.
Phillies Projected Lineup:
LF Kyle Schwarber
1B Rhys Hoskins
3B Alec Bohm
