Phillies Vs. Nationals Preview: Game Time, TV Schedule, Probable Starters

The Phillies, who have won five of their last seven games, will look to take their second in a row against the Washington Nationals. The Nationals currently lead the Atlanta Braves by 6.5 games in the NL East and will try to end a two-game losing skid.

Phillies starting pitcher Roy Halladay is having his worst season in years. Known for his reliability, Halladay will finish the season with fewer than 30 starts for the first time since 2005. Consistency has been a problem this year for the two-time Cy Young Award winner, though he has managed to win three of his last four starts.

The Nationals will send Gio Gonzalez to the bump in search of his league-leading 17th win. Gonzalez has been stellar in his first season as a National, going 16-6 with a 3.23 ERA.

Saturday's game will start at 7:05 ET and can be viewed on CSN.
