For the second time in June, the Phillies and Nationals will face each other again. This time at Citizens Bank Park.
Set to start Thursday night, the two teams will be playing each other in Philly for a four game series. In the first series in June, the Phillies won that three game series 2-1. That one loss coming after a 8-6 Sunday Night Baseball loss. That was a game blown by the bullpen after taking a six-run lead.
Now coming off a series loss to the Yankees the Phillies have a little bit of momentum thanks to Zach Eflin’s stellar performance Wednesday night.
Washington, meanwhile, is coming off a devestating two-game series at the hands of the Tampa Bay Rays, who swept them by a combined score of 12-0.
Here’s everything you need to know for the four-game series from pitching matchups to splits.
