The Phillies play another NL East opponent tonight, matching up against the Washington Nationals for the first time this season. They come in limping off a dreadful finish to the Braves series, but also not far off a five game winning streak. Their night and day season continues against a team that has struggled to begin their season as well.

You came here for lineups, so here they are. For the Phillies:

Some more movement in the lineup as Didi Gregorius drops to seventh and Alec Bohm gets the night off.

For the Nationals:

Its pretty simple: don’t let Juan Soto beat you.

Let’s talk about it!
