The Washington Nationals will play the Cincinnati Reds in Game 3 of this series at Great American Ball Park on Saturday afternoon.
The Washington Nationals are 19-35 this season and have lost four of their last five games. Washington won Game 2 of this series by a score of 8-5 on Friday night. The Washington pitching staff has a 5.28 ERA, a 1.50 WHIP, and a .272 opponent batting average this season. The Nationals offense has scored 215 runs with a .252 batting average and a .318 on base percentage. Juan Soto is batting .223 with 10 home runs and 17 RBI’s for the Nationals this season. The projected starter for Washington is Erick Fedde, who is 3-4 with a 4.60 ERA and a 1.53 WHIP over 47 innings pitched this season.
The Cincinnati Reds are 18-33 this season and have alternated wins and losses over their last six games. Cincinnati won Game 1 of this series by a score of 8-1 on Thursday night. The Cincinnati pitching staff has a 5.40 ERA, a 1.43 WHIP, and a .152 opponent batting average. The Reds offense has scored 215 runs with a .227 batting average and a .300 on base percentage this year. Brandon Drury is batting .245 with eight home runs and 26 RBI’s for the Reds this season. The projected starter for Cincinnati is Tyler Mahle, who is 2-5 with a 5.53 ERA and a 1.38 WHIP over 53.2 innings pitched this season.
Washington is 23-47 in their last 70 road games and 16-35 in their last 51 Saturday games. The over is 10-4 in Washington’s last 14 games. Cincinnati is 6-3 in their last 9 games and 4-1 in their last 5 games following a loss. The under is 7-2 in Cincinnati’s last 9 Saturday games. The over is 5-1 in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings.
Both of these teams have bad records, but the Reds are playing much better than the Nationals over the last week or two. Both pitching staffs have been roughed up and have ERA’s over 5.00. There have been plenty of runs scored in the first two games of this series and I like the over again here.
