Washington Nationals

The Washington Nationals will try to break out of their offensive funk when they visit the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday evening. After suffering consecutive shutout losses against the Chicago White Sox, the Nationals scored twice against Zack Wheeler in a 4-2 loss to the Phillies on Friday as Philadelphia won for the fourth time in its last five games. Washington's MacKenzie Gore (2-4, 3.38 ERA) will oppose Cristopher Sanchez (2-3, 3.43) on Saturday in a battle of left-handers during the middle contest of the three-game series.

Zack Wheeler has been very good at times this season, at other times not so much. One of those lesser outings was Wheeler's last appearance, when he lasted only four innings and allowed six earned runs on the way to 7-6 Phillies loss in Miami last Sunday. While Citizens Bank Park in mid-May isn't Miami, Wheeler got into the spirit of things Friday night, celebrating at least a temporary return of warmer and drier weather here by limiting the Washington Nationals to a pair of runs over 7 1/3 innings and nailing down a 4-2 victory. While it was a rather typical winning Wheeler outing, he definitely showed more zip on his fastball than he had in some time, hitting 98 with seeming ease along the way.

The future for the Washington Nationals is very bright. One of the key pieces of that future is slugger James Wood. The 6-foot-7, 240-power hitter, whose size, skill and raw power has drawn comparisons to New York Yankees captain Aaron Judge, has been a standout minor league performer since he arrived in the Juan Soto trade in 2022. In that trade, the Nationals landed their current shortstop CJ Adams and the aforementioned Wood.
