Game Thread, 4/9: Nationals at Phillies

It’s Aaron Nola vs. Stephen Strasburg in a game that hopefully the Nationals will hate.

You don’t need everyone in this lineup firing on all cylinders. You just need a couple of them to come through, and the Phillies have a lineup full of guys with the potential to do just that. We saw it last night, when Bryce Harper had a cold night at the plate and Rhys Hoskins came through with two bombs to give the Phillies the win—along with Odubel Herrera’s towering blast, as well. Tonight, the Phillies look to take the series as Aaron Nola faces Stephen Strasburg in what could be a pitchers’ duel but what also might be a slugfest.
