Lyles has been awful this season sitting with an ERA of 7.15 and that is going to hurt them again here. Even though the Nationals offense hasn’t been exactly elite this season they are going to have no issue running up the score. The Royals aren’t going to be keeping up. Back the Nationals on the money line.
