Today’s matchup is between the Washington Nationals (23-30) and the Philadelphia Phillies (26-29). The Nationals have won 2 of their last 5 games & the Phillies have won 2 of their last 5 games.

The Nationals are starting Max Scherzer (RHP), on the mound who is 4-4 on the season pitching a 2.34 ERA, 3.19 FIP, .249 wOBA, K% of 36.5%, BB% of 5.4%, 89.7 MPH average exit velocity, and a 0.82 WHIP in 69.1 innings pitched.

The Phillies are starting Zack Wheeler (RHP), who is 4-2 on the season with a 2.52 ERA, 2.48 FIP, .248 wOBA, K% of 31.7%, BB% of 5.5%, 86.4 MPH average exit velocity, and a 0.93 WHIP in 75.0 innings pitched.

The Nationals are 18th in the Majors in Relieving Pitching (WAR) while the Phillies are 23rd.

On the hitting side, the Nationals have a .311 wOBA and a .320 OBP. The Phillies have a .306 wOBA and a .312 OBP. The Nationals have 53 HRs this season while the Phillies have 59 HRs.

With 2 great pitchers on the mound, I envision runs being hard to come by as they pitch deep into the game. That said, I like under 7 runs.
