Philadelphia Phillies vs Washington Nationals 8/2/2021

Predictions & Game Chat

Washington have been good against lefties this season, but Gray should spook Nats bettors here. Gray has coughed up 4 home runs and 6 ER in 8 IP through one start and one relief appearance. Give me Philly -110 with Suarez and the slightly better pen.

Ranger Suarez 4-3 (1.34 ERA) has not started a game for Philly since 2018 and the most pitches he has thrown in a game this season is 45, so even if he is pitching well four innings might be the max. He now has a 1.14 ERA and remains a front-runner for save opportunities in Philadelphia.

Josiah Gray 0-0 (6.75 ERA) will make his Nationals debut today against the Phillies - he was recently acquired from the Dodgers in the Scherzer/Turner trade. The 23-year-old should hold a rotation spot for the remainder of the season for the rebuilding Nationals. Gray offers appeal given his ability to generate swings and misses. However, he has allowed four homers in just eight big league innings this season.

Pick: Philly -125 is the lean here - they are still in the playoff hunt and have the better lineup and you have to give Suarez the edge over Gray who has struggled with the deep ball.
