Washington Nationals vs Philadelphia Phillies Match Preview and Free Picks
The Philadelphia Phillies hold a slight edge in the season series against the Washington Nationals, however Ryan Zimmerman's two-run homer with two outs in the ninth inning last week left a sour taste in their mouths. The sputtering Phillies (70-60) look to get back on track on Monday as they begin a six-game homestand with the first of three contests against the Nationals (65-66).
Philadelphia, which resides three games behind National League East-leading Atlanta, had lost six of seven before Rhys Hoskins and Carlos Santana belted back-to-back home runs while Maikel Franco and Wilson Ramos each had two-run shots in Sunday's 8-3 romp versus Toronto. Hoskins went 4-for-12 with four RBIs and two runs scored against the Blue Jays after going 1-for-13 with five strikeouts in the previous series versus Washington.
The Nationals followed Zimmerman's heroics in Wednesday's 8-7 win over Philadelphia with three straight shutout losses before erupting in Sunday's 15-0 shellacking of the New York Mets. Mark Reynolds launched his sixth career grand slam in a six-run ninth inning for the Nationals, who have won just five of 14 overall and six of 13 versus the Phillies this season.

Nationals RH Stephen Strasburg (6-7, 4.23 ERA): Strasburg struggled in his first start since missing more than a month with a neck problem, surrendering five runs - including two homers - over four innings against Philadelphia on Wednesday.

Franco went deep in his last meeting with Strasburg and is 7-for-22 with two homers against the hurler.
Phillies RH Zach Eflin (9-4, 3.93): Like Strasburg, Eflin struggled in that Wednesday encounter versus Washington as he permitted five runs on 10 hits over 3 1/3 frames of a no-decision.
