The Washington Nationals and Boston Red Sox face off on Saturday in an interleague showdown at Fenway Park. The Nationals had no issue getting the job done in the first game of this series winning 10-2. 

The Washington Nationals were struggling coming into Friday night’s game. The Nationals offense had scored only five runs total in the previous two games. On Friday night the offense was elite, putting up 10 runs and they were led by Trea Turner who had three hits and three home runs. On Friday the Nationals put up 16 hits, and in this game the Nationals need to run up the score again. Juan Soto also had one hit and two RBI’s. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Boston Red Sox who have been one of the biggest disappointments this season. The Red Sox offense has been a big issue all season and over the last two games they had scored only two runs total. The best offensive player all season for the Red Sox has been Mitch Moreland who has hit eight home runs and driven in 21 RBI’s.
