After a thrilling victory last night where they came from behind in their half of the ninth inning, the Phillies take on the Nationals again in a battle of NL East division rivals. The Phillies will send their Cy Young candidate to the mound, while the Nationals will send their free agent disappointment to the mound. Maybe the official scorer will get the score right tonight!
Here are the lineups. For the Phillies:

Rhys Hoskins is back in the lineup after getting dinged up and needing to miss a few games. Luke Williams will take the leftfield spot tonight.
For the Nationals:

I mean, you gotta kind of feel bad for Juan Soto right? Patrick Corbin is on the bump tonight and while he hasn’t been good this year, in eight career starts against the Phillies while a member of the Nationals, he has pitched to a 3.19 ERA. So there’s that.
Let’s talk about it.
