The Nationals can clinch at least a split of the season series tonight against the Phillies, which would be an accomplishment given the Phillies’ dominance over them the past few seasons. The Nationals have already won seven of their last nine games against their divisional bully.
Winning would take John Lannan beating the Philliies, another rare accomplishment. Lannan has a 5.81 ERA in 16 career starts against the Phillies, and the Nationals are 2-14 in those games.
As always, talk about the game right here.
