Nationals Vs. Phillies: Can Washington Extend Their Five-Game Winning Streak in Philadelphia?

The Washington Nationals have won 12 of their last 15 games against the Philadephia Phillies, including a five-game winning streak at Citizens Bank Park. Jordan Zimmerman (2-4, 2.58 ERA) will go up against Roy Halladay (4-3, 3.22) as the Nationals look to extend that streak in game two of the three-game series.

Zimmerman has never beaten the Phillies in his career, as he's 0-3 with a 6.00 ERA in four starts against Philadelphia. Halladay, on the other hand, is 11-1 with a 2.28 ERA in 15 career starts against the Nationals/Expos franchise. Both pitchers have struggled as of late, with Zimmerman sporting a 1-3 record and a 3.91 ERA and Halladay also going 1-3 with a 4.35 ERA.

First pitch is at 7:05 p.m. You can watch the game on MASN.
