The Los Angeles Dodgers will face the Washington Nationals in the final game of a three game set on Sunday. The Dodgers will be going for the sweep in this one.

Last time out, the Dodgers came away with the win 9-5. Urias got the start and went 5.2 innings, allowing 3 runs on 9 hits. From the dish, the Dodgers had 9 hits, and were 5-12 with runners in scoring position. Chris Taylor hit a three-run shot in the 2nd for his first of the season. To start the season, the Dodgers have a .293 team batting average, second best in the majors. Justin Turner leads the team with a .412 batting average, 2 home runs and 9 RBI.

Starting for the Dodgers will be their ace, lefty Clayton Kershaw. To start the season, he has a 1-1 record, 4.26 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 10 strikeouts in 12.2 innings. He has held the Nationals to a .203 batting average in 119 career at bats against their current roster.

The Nationals could not overcome a poor outing by starter Patrick Corbin. He gave up 6 runs in 4.1 innings, a deficit they could not recover from. From the plate they had 15 hits and were 2-5 with runners in scoring position. Juan Soto hit two home runs, his first two of the season. So far in 2021, the Nationals have a .282 team batting average with 4 home runs through 5 games. Ryan Zimmerman leads the team with a .471 batting average.

Washington will also be starting their ace, sending out righty Max Scherzer on Sunday. In his first start, he went 6 innings, allowing 4 runs on 5 hits. Against these Dodgers in his career, he has allowed a .139 batting average with 3 home runs in 51 at bats.

Los Angeles is 8-2 in their last 10 games, 6-4 on the run line, and the under is 6-4.

Washington is 4-6 in their last 10 games, 5-5 on the run line, and the over is 6-3-1.

This one has the makings of a pitchers duel, with two of the best in the business going Sunday night. Both teams have been swinging the bat well, but either of these pitchers can take over a game on any given night. Tonight I will roll the dice with Scherzer and the plus money. He has done well against the Dodgers in the past, and the Nationals lineup is good enough to scratch a few across against whoever pitches. Give me Washington to win.
