Today’s matchup is between the Philadelphia Phillies (27-25) and the Washington Nationals (19-32).

The Phillies are starting Zack Wheeler (LHP), who is 4-0 on the season pitching a 2.62 ERA, 3.27 FIP, .280 wOBA, K% of 16.5%, BB% of 3.5%, 86.1 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.10 WHIP in 58.1 innings pitched.

The Nationals are starting Anibal Sanchez (LHP), who is 2-5 on the season with a 7.38 ERA, 5.76 FIP, .395 wOBA, K% of 16.7%, BB% of 6.4%, 88.9 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.76 WHIP in 42.2 innings pitched.

The Phillies are the 30th best in the Majors in Relieving Pitching, while the Nationals are 19th.

On the hitting side, the Phillies have a .335 wOBA and a .340 OBP. The Nationals have a .318 wOBA and a .325 OBP. The Phillies have 74 HRs this season while the Nationals have 53 HRs.

I like the Phillies to win the game here, they have the better starting pitcher an batting unit. I do believe the Nationals will make up some ground later on in the game with their relievers but this has Phillies name all over it.
