Game Notes: Phillies at Nationals

July 31, 2012

It has been a sad trade deadline for the Phillies as they traded away two star outfielders in Shane Victorino and Hunter Pence, which only adds to a disappointing season that leaves them at the bottom of the NL East. Now that a rough series in Atlanta and the trade deadline have passed, the Fightin' Phils need to regroup and finish the season as best as they possibly can. They can start tonight in Washington, where they will face Stephen Strasburg, who is under an innings limit for the season that has not entirley been made clear. All while they do it with a dramatically different outfield.
