Today’s matchup is between the Washington Nationals (24-30) and the Philadelphia Phillies (26-30). The Nationals have won 3 of their last 5 games & the Phillies have won 1 of their last 5 games.

The Nationals are starting Joe Ross (RHP), on the mound who is 2-5 on the season pitching a 5.40 ERA, 5.49 FIP, .338 wOBA, K% of 22.1%, BB% of 10.3%, 86.8 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.41 WHIP in 48.1 innings pitched.

The Phillies are starting Spencer Howard (RHP), who is 0-1 on the season with a 5.56 ERA, 3.21 FIP, .322 wOBA, K% of 32.1%, BB% of 17.0%, 87.4 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.59 WHIP in 11.1 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 .309 wOBA and a .318 OBP. The Phillies have a .306 wOBA and a .312 OBP. The Nationals have 53 HRs this season while the Phillies have 59 HRs.

Spencer Howard (Phillies) is an unpredictable pitcher so far who has a 17% BB rate & a 1.59 WHIP. Joe Ross (Nationals) just gets shelled when he pitches. With both teams being able to make contact and having average relievers, I'll take the over 9 runs here.
