Nationals over Phillies- The Washington Nationals at 18-9 have the best record in the National League and they have a 5 ½ game lead over the Phillies who are currently last in the East and have done it with pitching. Despite scoring less then three runs a game as the average only 2.7 runs at home they are 12-3 as hosts and have won their last four. Sunday night they send Jordan Zimmerman (1-2, 1.89 ERA) who has been they only starter to pitch well without much to show for it as a lack of support have hurt his record but not has stuff. The Nationals actually have been the best team in baseball over their last 45 games winning 32 going back to last September. Zimmerman has surrendered only 25 hits in over 33 innings while posting a WHIP of 0.84. Take WASHINGTON!
