The Washington Nationals will host the Cleveland Guardians for game two of their weekend series this Saturday from Nationals Park. Cleveland took the first meeting in comeback fashion, 4-3. 

Guardians Betting Preview

Cleveland is 8-6 after defeating Washington. The Guardians took care of business down the stretch in game one, and they’ll aim to come out sharper here. The Cleveland offense is scoring 4.14 runs per game, while batting .235, with a .327 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 4.14 ERA, with a 1.18 WHIP. Andres Gimenez is first on the team in hits (14) and runs (16) after scoring in eight of the last ten games. Jose Ramirez leads the Guardians in batting average (.315) after recording multiple hits in two of the last three games.

Zach Plesac (0-0, 9.00, 7 Ks) will get the call for Cleveland. The fifth-year pitcher cleaned up a messy debut in Oakland with a strong showing versus Seattle. Plesac struck out six in seven innings pitched, while allowing just two runs, and he’ll look to keep things going in DC this weekend.

Nationals Betting Preview

Washington dropped to 4-10 after losing to Cleveland. The Nationals suffered a second consecutive one-run loss last night, and they’ll look to avoid a fourth straight defeat here. The Washington offense is scoring 3.42 runs per game, while batting .251, with a .322 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 4.94 ERA, with a 1.42 WHIP. Lane Thomas has been one of the lone bright spots in the Nats lineup, and he’s leading the team in batting average (.315) after recording a pair of hits last night. 

Chad Kuhl (0-0, 8.10 ERA, 7 Ks) will get the call for Washington. The seventh-year pitcher had a tough time versus his former team last time out, giving up five runs in five innings at Coors to the Rockies. Kuhl also struggled in his season debut with Tampa at home, so Cleveland may be able to have some success against him. 

Cleveland vs Washington Trends

Cleveland is 6-8 against the spread this season, with a 7-6-1 over/under record. Washington is 8-6 ATS this year, with a 6-6-2 O/U record.

Corey's Free Pick

Cleveland took game one in a sweat, but game two might not be as contested. The Guardians’ lineup should find a way to give Chad Kuhl trouble in the first half of the contest, and it should simply come down to a matter of bullpen pitching. Roll with Cleveland this Saturday.
