Nats-Phils to play 5; wild-card fates at stake

The Washington Nationals return home to close out the regular season with a stretch of eight games in seven days that will essentially determine whether they host the National League wild card game or travel to it.

After Sunday's 5-3 loss to the Miami Marlins, the Nationals (85-69) find themselves one percentage point ahead of the streaking Milwaukee Brewers (86-70) for the top wild-card spot.

Milwaukee has won 15 of its last 17 games and would host the wild-card game if the teams end up tied based on winning the season series from Washington 4-2.
