Series Preview: Phillies @ Nationals

DC Sports Nexus ---- Tuesday, July 31, 2012

After going 7-1 last week, the Nats welcome the Phillies into DC for a three game series.  The Phillies are in last place in the NL East, as they have been basically all season.  Still, you can bet Philly fans will try and crowd our stadium during this series.  If you can, get out to the park and catch a game.  Here is how it stacks up:
  • Tuesday: 7:05 PM, Lee (1-6) vs Strasburg (11-4).
  • Wednesday: 7:05 PM, Hurley (5-6) vs Jackson (6-6).
  • Thursday: 7:05 PM, Hamels (11-5) vs Detwiler (5-4).
Game of the Series:  Going with Tuesday.  Sure Cliff Lee hasn't been himself this season, but how can you resist a Lee vs Strasburg Match Up.

Sound of the Series:  With the talk of protecting our park from the Philly fans, this song came to mind.  Welcome to the Jungle, Philly.

Prediction Time:
My baseball IQ is on the line as I try and predict how the Nats will fare each series. 
  • Nationals WIN Tuesday.
  • Nationals WIN Wednesday.
  • Nationals LOSE Thursday.
Nationals WIN the series 2-1.
