The Washington Nationals and Cincinnati Reds face off on Thursday in an MLB showdown at the Great American Ballpark. 

The Nationals come into this game with an 18-34 record overall and they have lost three games in a row. Over the last two games, the Nationals have failed to score any runs. The Nationals offense hasn’t been great this season, but even more disappointing has been the pitching staff. The Nationals are giving up 5.42 runs per game which is 30th in the league. Josh Bell has been the top player hitting four home runs and driving in 28 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Reds who sit with a 17-32 record overall and they have lost two of their last three games. On Wednesday, the offense could only manage one run, and that led to the six-run defeat. The Reds offense overall has been good this season averaging 4.18 runs per game. Brandon Drury is having a big season hitting eight home runs and driving in 26 RBIs.

On the mound for the Nationals is Joan Adon who sits with a 1-8 record and an ERA of 6.08. In his last start against the Colorado Rockies, he went six innings, giving up six hits and two runs. 

On the mound for the Reds is Graham Ashcraft who sits with a 1-0 record and an ERA of 1.69. 

The Reds are 5-2 in their last seven games overall. The Nationals are 0-4 in Adon’s last four road starts. The over is 4-1 in the Nationals' last five games during Game 1 of a series. The over is 5-1-1 in the Reds last seven games against the National League East. 

Joan Adon has been awful this season, and even though he was a little better in the last start, I don’t expect him to repeat that here. The Reds are averaging 4.19 runs per game and their offense is going to find success here. Look for the Reds to score at least five runs here, and they will get the job done. Back the Reds on the money line.
