Game Thread 5/5: Phillies at Nationals

Welcome back to Nationals Park after a night of too-soon exits and too-late runs.

The Phillies saw some offense last night, but only managed to squeeze out Carlos Santana and Maikel Franco home runs after the Nationals had built a 7-0 lead off a poor Nick Pivetta start. Are you a starting pitcher for the Phillies whose name is NOT Aaron Nola? Then you have sucked lately.

Starting for the Phillies today: Not Aaron Nola.

Good luck, everyone!
