Watch Philadelphia Phillies vs Washington Nationals Live Streaming @ Sportsbook Online: The match-up between Philadelphia Phillies and Washington Nationals will kick off on April 5, 2010 at 1.05 pm.

The Philadelphia Phillies and the Washington Nationals enter the 2010 season on opposite ends of the spectrum. The Phillies (93-69) won the National League pennant last season after cruising to a NL East Division title, edging out the Marlins by 6 games. The Nationals (59-103) on the other hand, enter 2010 after finishing with the worst record in baseball for two consecutive seasons.

Betting Lines

Both teams made strides that they feel proud of this offseason, and both have left their fan base feeling they will make the step to the next level in 2010. The Phillies replaced Cliff Lee, an ace in his own right, with Roy Halladay, a man who has arguably been the best pitcher in baseball for the last decade. The club also bolstered their defense by adding Placido Palanco, giving them arguably the best infield in baseball. The Phillies are trying to recapture the World Championship.

The Nationals made moves of their own, bringing in starting pitching and bullpen help. Washington looks to improve the leagues worst pitching staff and defense. The club allowed a league-high 143 errors last season with a league low .977 fielding percentage. The pitching staff struck out a league-low 911 batters while walking a league-high 629. The Nationals are looking to make the move towards respectability.

The Nationals enter today's game with a seven-game win streak extending from the end of last season, leaving them three shy of their franchise record for consecutive wins.
