The Los Angeles offense is scoring 5.04 runs per game, while batting .248, with a .330 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 4.50 ERA, with a 1.28 WHIP. 

The Dodgers have yet to name starter for this contest.

Dodgers Player Trends & Props

Mookie Betts was quiet in the Atlanta and Miami series, so he may be due here in the Capitol this weekend, and leads LAD in home runs (38) and RBI (99). while batting an impressive .313.

Freddie Freeman doubled in a run in series finale in Miami, and he leads the Dodgers in BA (.333) and hits (183), with 25 homers and 91 runs batted in. 

Max Muncy has recorded a hit in seven of the last ten games,  and he’s totaled 32 home runs and 91 RBI for the season. 

Amed Rosario plated multiple runs in the game two win over the Marlins, and he’s batting .250, with 56 RBI for the season. 

 

Nationals Preview & Projected Starter

Washington moved to 64-78 after defeating Los Angeles. kThe Washington offense is scoring 3.48 runs per game, while batting .262, with a .319 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 4.96 ERA, with a 1.50 WHIP.

Trevor Williams (5-6, 4.72 ERA, 79 Ks) is set to start for Washington. The eighth-year pitcher was roughed in Queens last week, allowing five runs in four innings to the Metsen route to his sixth loss of the season. Williams posted season-highs in runs allowed and walks against New York last time out, and he’ll look to put that performance behind him. Williams has been solid overall this year from an innings-eating standpoint, but he’s allowed three runs or more in five of his last seven starts, and he’ll face an uphill battle here with LAD. 

Nats Player Trends &  Props

Lane Thomas homered in the first three matchups with Miami, and he leads the Nats in hits (153), with splits of .285/23/74. 

Joey Meneses went hitless against the Marlins, so he could be due just as Thomas was, and he’s still batting a strong .279, with 76 RBI.

CJ Abrams plated a pair of runs in the first two meetings, and he’s posting a line of .245/15/51. 

Keibert Ruiz has recorded a hit in seven of his previous ten games, and he’s totaled 16 homers and 55 Arbh For the season. 

Corey’s Free Pick

The Dodgers have struggled a bit this month, but I like their chances against Trevor Williams here. Williams has allowed runs consistently this season, and his presence will leave a pair of angles open. Los Angeles may very well strike back with a win here, but let’sback the Over to clear for a third straight contest.
