The Washington Nationals will play the Atlanta Braves in Game 2 of their series at Truist Park on Saturday afternoon.
The Washington Nationals are 30-56 this season and have lost eight of their last nine games. Washington lost Game 1 of this series by a score of 12-2 on Friday night. The Washington pitching staff has a 5.20 ERA, a 1.48 WHIP, and a .269 opponent batting average this season. The Nationals offense has scored 335 runs with a .249 batting average and a .317 on base percentage. Josh Bell is batting .306 with 12 home runs and 47 RBI’s for the Nationals this season. The projected starter for Washington is Patrick Corbin, who is 4-10 with a 5.68 ERA and a 1.67 WHIP over 88.2 innings pitched this season.
The Atlanta Braves are 50-35 this season and have won four of their last five games. Prior to winning Game 1 of this series, Atlanta won three out of four games against St. Louis. The Atlanta pitching staff has a 3.59 ERA, a 1.23 WHIP, and a .231 opponent batting average. The Braves offense has scored 408 runs with a .250 batting average and a .316 on base percentage this year. Austin Riley is batting .275 with 21 home runs and 51 RBI’s for the Braves this season. The projected starter for Atlanta is Kyle Wright, who is 9-4 with a 2.91 ERA and a 1.14 WHIP over 96 innings pitched this season.
Washington is 17-35 in their last 52 game two’s of a series and 16-59 in their last 75 games against the NL East. The under is 11-5 in Washington’s last 16 games. Atlanta is 4-1 in their last 5 Saturday games and 15-4 in their last 19 home games. The under is 6-1 in Atlanta’s last 7 games. The over is 7-1 in these two teams last 8 head to head meetings.
This game looks to have a huge advantage for the Braves on their home field. Atlanta is starting Kyle Wright, who has allowed one earned run in his last 11 innings. Washington is starting Patrick Corbin, who already has 10 losses, but has only allowed two runs over his last 15 innings pitched. Atlanta pounded Washington on Friday night and I expect more of the same here. I like Atlanta to win by at least two runs and would also look at their team total over.
