Series Preview: Washington Nationals (46-42) @ Philadelphia Phillies (43-46)

USA TODAY Sports

Dan Haren! John Lannan! Nationals! Phillies! This Washington Nationals team finally (finally!) has been scoring runs and (shocker!) winning ball games. Health is a wonderful thing, isn't it? Speaking of health, Dan Haren returns tonight! Did I mention runs?

The last seven games have been pretty successful on a whole, if you ignore the middle two games of the Milwaukee series. This is a very important series for the Nationals as they need to carry the momentum they have garnered over the recent homestand.

HITTER TO WATCH: Delmon Young
A lot of people chuckled when they saw Delmon Young signing with the Phillies. And while his defense is still a laughing matter, his bat has actually been pretty good. He is 9/22 (.409/.435/.455) over his last 7 days, with 2 RBI. Although the power hasn't been there, he's been good at getting on base and not making outs. For the season, he is hitting .274/.325/.435 with 7 homeruns and 27 RBI.

PITCHER TO WATCH: Cole Hamels
Last year, it was Cliff Lee who couldn't buy a win. This year for the Phillies, it's Cole Hamels. Hamels hasn't been as good as Lee was last year, he has been better over the last month - 1-2 with a 3.94 ERA and a 30-7 K-BB ratio. For the year, he is 3-11 with a 4.38 ERA. When you've won one game a month, I guess that's considered on the right track.
