MLB Game Day Preview: Nationals @ Phillies
Philadelphia is atarting to pull it all together as we head into the stretch run of the 2011 MLB regular season. Once one of the lighter hitting teams in the league, the Phillies are starting to show some pop in their bats and that will only compliment one of the best pitching rotations in baseball.
Washington showed some early season promise but they have now dropped to 21 games back of the Phillies in the NL East and they are 12.5 games out the National League “Wild Card” chase.

Despite their comfortable 8.5 game lead over the Atlanta Braves, we expect the Phillies to keep the pedal to the metal down the stretch.
With one of their aces on the hill tonight in LHP Cole Hamels (13-6 2.53 ERA), facing a struggling RHP Livan Hernandez (6-11 4.41 ERA), we like Philadelphia in this one.
Take the Phillies over the Nationals at -1.5 (-120) with the Bodog.com Point Spread!
