The San Diego Padres and Washington Nationals face off on Friday in an MLB showdown at Nationals Park. This game will be the first game back to Nationals Park for Josh Bell and Juan Soto.
The Padres come into this game with a 63-51 record overall and they have won two games in a row. Over the last two games, the Padres have scored 20 runs total, and with as much talent as the offense has, that should be the expectation for this team. The Padres offense overall is averaging 4.43 runs per game which is 15th in the league. Manny Machado has hit 20 home runs and driven in 65 RBIs.
On the other side of this matchup is the Nationals who sit with a 37-76 record overall and they have gone lost five of their last six games. In the last game against the Chicago Cubs, the offense only scored two runs and that led to the four-run defeat. The Nationals pitching is giving up 5.56 runs per game which is 30th in the league.
On the mound for the Padres is Mike Clevinger who sits with a 3-4 record and an ERA of 3.60. In his last start against the Dodgers, he went 4.2 innings giving up seven hits and five runs.
On the mound for the Nationals is Cory Abbott who sits with an 0-1 record and an ERA of 5.58. In his last start against the Philadelphia Phillies, he went 3.2 innings giving up seven hits and seven runs.
The Padres are 9-1 in their last 10 games following an off day. The Padres are 0-4 in their last four road games. The over is 4-0-2 in the Nationals' last six games following a loss. The over is 3-0-1 in the Padres last four games against a right-handed starter.
The Padres bats are heating up and now they get to face off against Abbott who is coming off a start where he gave up seven runs. I expect The Padres are going to run up the score here, and Clevinger is going to lower his ERA of 3.60. This game is going to be a blowout early. Back the Padres -1.5.
