The Washington Nationals will be trying to extend a winning streak on Friday when they take on the Philadelphia Phillies at Nationals Park.

The Phillies will trot Jake Thompson out to the mound in this one. Right hander Thompson has a 1-1 record and a 4.50 ERA this season.

It’ll be Max Scherzer toeing the rubber for the Nationals in this contest. Right hander Scherzer is 13-5 with a 2.19 ERA so far this season.

Thompson put his best foot forward in his return to the rotation, allowing one run on three hits while striking out a career-high seven in six innings of a 3-1 victory versus Miami. “It’s nice to have one of those days after the things I’ve gone through this year. It makes me feel good,” the 23-year-old said. Thompson made a pair of relief appearances versus Washington in May, striking out two in a scoreless inning of work before permitting two runs on as many hits with three walks in two frames just two days later.

Scherzer is 5-0 during his 11-start unbeaten streak since his last loss against Miami on June 21, when he pitched well by surrendering just two runs on as many hits and striking out 11 in eight innings. The 33-year-old has allowed five runs and struck out 15 in 12 2/3 innings versus the Phillies this season. Scherzer has routinely flustered Aaron Altherr (0-for-9, six strikeouts), Maikel Franco (1-for-18) and Cameron Rupp (4-for-23, 12 strikeouts).

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Nationals listed as 350-money line favorites versus the Phillies, while the game’s total is sitting at 7½.

Max Scherzer is all systems go after pitching a pain-free bullpen session on Wednesday, four days after his left calf was struck by a line drive in a game against Milwaukee. The two-time Cy Young Award winner hopes he’s no worse for wear on Friday as the Washington Nationals play the second contest of their four-game series versus the visiting Philadelphia Phillies.

Scherzer carries both an overall 11-start unbeaten streak and a 7-0 mark with a 2.07 ERA against the Phillies since 2015, including a 1-0 record in two encounters this season. Washington trimmed its magic number to four toward clinching its fourth National League East title in six years with Thursday’s 4-3 victory over Philadelphia coupled with second-place Miami’s 6-5 setback in Atlanta. Phillies outfielder Odubel Herrera had a single and double on Thursday to raise his hitting streak to 20 games, the longest such streak in the majors this season. The 25-year-old Venezuelan has enjoyed success versus Scherzer, against whom he is 10-for-31 in his career.

Washington was a 4-3 winner in its last match on the road against the Phillies. They won as -138 favorites, while the total score of 7 made winners of UNDER bettors.

Last time out for Philadelphia, they were a 4-3 loser as they battled the Nationals on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Nationals at -138 were rewarded, while the 7 combined runs moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.
