Prediction

Nationals 4, Phillies 3

Money line (ML)

Washington comes into this series after losing 2-of-3 to the New York Yankees over the weekend, and the Nats have lost four of their last six.

Philadelphia is on the second leg of a three-city road trip. The Phillies dropped 2-of-3 at Atlanta to start the trip, and they’re just 5-11 (with a minus-22 run differential) on the road. The Phillies won last year’s season series against the Nats, 7-3.

Fedde was serviceable in the three outings preceding his last. These are two offenses headed in different ways of late (last two weeks: Nationals .748 OPS, Phillies .635 OPS).

BACK THE NATIONALS (-130).
