The New York Mets and Washington Nationals face off on Tuesday in an MLB showdown at Nationals Park. On Monday it was the Mets that were able to secure the 7-3 victory. 

The Mets come into this game with a 65-37 record overall and they have won seven games in a row including two games against the New York Yankees during that stretch. The Mets offense and pitching staff are both ranked top five of the league. The Mets offense is averaging 4.7 runs per game which is 4th in baseball. Pete Alonso is having a monster year hitting 27 home runs and driving in 86 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Nationals who sit with a 35-69 record overall and they have lost two games in a row. In each of the last two games, the offense hasn’t looked great. The Nationals could be losing a few guys with the trade deadline, so make sure to check their lineup and who they have available for this game. The Nationals' biggest issue has been the pitching and they are giving up 5.45 runs per game which is last in baseball.

On the mound for the Mets will be Jacob deGrom and he is making his first start of the season. If he is the pitcher of old, this is a big-time addition for the team. 

On the mound for the Nationals will be Cory Abbott who sits with a 0-0 record and an ERA of 3.00. Abbott has only gone short stints this season and has pitched four innings total in three different appearances. 

The Mets are 7-0 in their last seven games overall. The Mets are 1-4 in their last five games on Tuesday. The over is 8-1-2 in deGrom’s last 11 road starts. The over is 9-2 in deGrom’s last 11 Tuesday starts. 

deGrom will be making his first start of the season and he might be on a pitch count here, but I still expect the Mets to have very few issues winning this game. deGrom will lockdown for his innings, and the bullpen will have no issue slowing down a Nationals team that is averaging only 3.82 runs per game. The Mets will find some success with their bats, much like they did on Monday, and get the job done. Back the Mets -1.5.
