Los Angeles Dodgers Team Preview

The Los Angeles Dodgers come into this game looking to build on their series-opening 4-1 win over the Nationals from Tuesday’s series opener. The Dodgers didn’t get it in gear until the later innings, getting on the board finally in the 6th inning before breaking the game open in the 8th inning with a pair of runs and an insurance run in the 9th. Going into Tuesday’s opener, Shohei Ohtani leads the Dodgers with 35 hits and a .368 batting average along with a team-high 11 doubles, 5 homers and 13 RBIs. Mookie Betts also has a team-high 6 home runs and 19 RBIs while Teoscar Hernandez has 5 home runs with 19 RBIs of his own. Ohtani and Betts each have a team-high 5 stolen bases as well this season. Landon Knack will get the start for the Dodgers here and is 0-1 with a 3.60 ERA and 4 strikeouts this season. This will be Knack’s second career start against the Nationals. The Dodgers will face the Blue Jays following this series.

The Washington Nationals come into this game looking to get some revenge after falling short and letting one slip away in Tuesday’s loss to the Dodgers.

Dodgers vs. Nationals Prediction

I’m on the Nationals here. The Dodgers got the win over Washington on Tuesday, but I think that win was a by-product of the bullpen just falling flat and the Nationals’ bats falling short. Irvin pitched really well the last time these starters locked up, and I think he can have another strong showing here. I think all of the value is on the Nationals in this one even though it’s hard facing the same lineup in back-to-back starts. Give me Washington here.
