Washington has now dropped three straight after getting shutout Friday. The Nationals did a great job limiting a potent Dodgers offense to just 4 hits but could not convert from the plate. They had 8 hits in the game but were just 1-5 with runners in scoring position and stuck out 10 times. Through their first four games the Nationals have a .248 team batting average and 12 runs scored. Jonathan Lucroy leads the team with a .400 batting average.

Washington has not released a starter for this game. In 12.1 innings this season the Nationals bullpen has a 3.65 team ERA with 2 home runs allowed.

The Nationals are 5-5 in their last 10, 6-4 on the run line, and the over is 6-3-1.

The Dodgers are 8-2 in their last 10, 5-5 on the run line, and the under is 6-4.

Despite their poor performance from the plate last time out, the Dodgers are the much better offense in this one. On the mound they have Julio Urias going, who was solid in his first start. Without knowing who the Nationals will be starting makes them tough to back. Give me the Dodgers to win.
