Philadelphia Phillies (23-24) at Washington Nationals (24-23) Kyle Kendrick (4-2, 2.82) v. Jordan Zimmerman (7-2, 1.62) TIME: 7:05, Nationals Park TV: CSN Weather: 50′s, partly cloudy Media: Twitter and Facebook The Phillies are in Washington tonight for the start of a three game series with the Nationals. They will look to be reach the .500 mark for the first time since April 14. They’ll hand the ball to Kyle Kendrick, who is 4-2 with a 2.82 ERA this year. However, he is coming off a start where he gave up four runs over six innings. For the Nationals, Jordan Zimmerman gets the call, and with a win tonight, will become the NL’s first eight game winner. He’s 7-2 on the year with an amazing 1.62 ERA. He has struggled against the Phillies in the past, however, as he is 1-6 with a 5.04 ERA against the Phils. Tonight will be cold and cloudy, which makes for a low scoring game, especially when the two starting pitchers have been pretty good this year. But then again, I’ve been way off b...
