The Washington Nationals look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Nationals have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last eight games. The Nationals have won five of their last six games when scoring four or more runs. Trea Turner leads the Nationals with 64 hits and 27 RBI while Juan Soto and Asdrubal Cabrera have combined for 74 hits and 53 RBI. Max Scherzer gets the ball, and he is 4-2 with a 3.40 ERA and 69 strikeouts this season. Scherzer is 10-8 with a 3.72 ERA and 157 strikeouts in his career against the Braves.

The Braves are 5-1 in their last 6 road games, 45-17 in their last 62 Sunday games and 2-5 in their last 7 during game 4 of a series. The Nationals are 7-16 in their last 23 home games, 2-6 in their last 8 Sunday games and 3-10 in their last 13 vs. National League East. The over is 18-7-4 in Braves last 29 overall. The over is 4-0 in Nationals last 4 Sunday games. The Braves are 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in Washington.

Kyle Wright has been absolutely awful this season, which includes allowing 12 runs and 20 hits in his last 16.1 innings. We know what we're getting from Max Scherzer, and he's holding current Braves hitters to a .188 batting average with 95 strikeouts in 323 at bats. There's only one way I can go in this game, and that's backing the Nets and the RL to produce a reasonable price.
