This matchup between the Phillies and the Nationals should be a good one. The Phillies are starting Aaron Nola on the mound who is 2-2 on the season pitching a 3.10 ERA, 3.34 FIP, .252 wOBA, 88.4 MPH average exit velocity & a .90 WHIP in 29 innings pitched.

The Nationals are starting Patrick Corbin, who is 2-2 with a 3.99 ERA, 3.41 FIP, .308 wOBA, 89.8 MPH average exit velocity & a 1.26 WHIP in 29.1 innings pitched. Both teams have struggled recently especially the Astros losing their last 3 games. Something has to give in this game and I’m siding with the Astros to get the win.

On the hitting side the Nationals have a .330 wOBA (10th) & the Phillies have a .341 wOBA (5th). Average exit velocities are at the league average. That being said these teams from pitching to hitting are very evenly matched. If I had to play a side I’d go with the Phillies.
