Taylor Jordan will face the Phillies for the second time in his eighth major league start. In the first meeting, which also came against Cliff Lee, he allowed four runs, only three earned, in 5 2/3 innings at Citizens Bank Park. Jordan’s slider has improved in the past month, and it will be interesting to see how the Phillies respond. The Nationals have faced Lee twice this year, one loss and one win. Talk about the game right here.
