Philadelphia Phillies vs Washington Nationals Game 1 Predictions 6/17/2022


Washington’s season-long problems continued when the Wizards were swept by Atlanta at home, losing the three-game series 27-11. The Nationals were in last place in the National League East on Thursday, 18.5 games behind the division-leading Mets.


Washington just had four hits against Atlanta on Wednesday, with no member having more than one. The Nationals’ Luis Garcia blasted his second home run of the season, a solo drive, and Kelbert Ruiz drove in the other run.


Joan Adon is expected to be recalled from Triple-A Rochester for a spot start today, which will be his 13th appearance for the Nationals this season.


Over 55.2 innings of work, he’s a woeful 1-10 with a 6.95 ERA, 1.76 WHIP, 35 walks, and 44 strikeouts. Adon got roughed up in his previous major league start, which occurred on July 7 at Miami.


In a game the Nationals lost 12-2, he pitched three innings, surrendering eight runs on seven hits with two walks and two strikeouts.


  • The total went OVER in 7 of Washington’s last 8 matches. 
  • The Washington Nationals are 0-5 SU in their last 5 matches. 
  • The total went OVER in 9 of Washington’s last 9 matches against Philadelphia.

Philadelphia Phillies vs Washington Nationals. The MLB pick for this game is the Philadelphia Phillies. Even if Adon does not start in the opener and Washington goes with Paolo Espino, there is little reason to be optimistic about Washington’s chances.


They came into Thursday with a four-game losing streak and lost seven of their previous nine games. Meanwhile, Philadelphia won 11 of its last 13 games to move above.500 on the season as of Thursday.


The Phillies should be able to light up a Nationals’ pitching staff that allowed at least four runs in seven consecutive matches entering Thursday.


Philadelphia, like Atlanta, is on a roll, and with Washington continuing to struggle in the NL East, the Phillies should easily win this one. The Philadelphia Phillies will win to a predicted score of 7-5.
