Shane’s Free Pick
Mahle has been exactly lights out to start the season, but I expect he’s going to lockdown in this game against a Nationals offense that has been awful all season. Williams sits with an ERA of 3.52 and the Twins offense has also been inconsistent. Both offenses are going to struggle to score here, and the under is going to cash.
