WASHINGTON (34-35) AT PHILADELPHIA (34-37), 7:05 PM (ET)
TV: MASN, PHL 17
Ross Detwiler (LHP) vs. Cliff Lee (LHP)
The Washington Nationals and Philadelphia Phillies will meet tonight for the
second contest of a three game series. Neither of these teams have been playing
very well. The Nationals have lost three of their last four games and the
Phillies have lost seven of their last ten.
However, the game will feature two quality starting pitchers. The nationals
send Ross Detwiler to the hill tonight. He is making his second start after
missing some time as a result a strained oblique. In his last start he worked
five innings and allowed three runs.
The Phillies will have lefty Cliff Lee on the mound for them tonight. Lee has
been very consistent all season. He has pitched seven or more innings in his
last eight starts and has allowed three earned runs or less in all of those
games giving his team a chance to win. As a result he has an 8-2 record. Look
for the Phillies to win tonight behind pitcher Cliff Lee.
SPORTS NETWORK CHOICE: Take Philadelphia at -170.
