Washington Nationals vs Texas Rangers Prediction

Jon Gray sits with an ERA of 2.92, and he’s going to find success again here. In his last start, gave up one run, and he’s going to dominate again here. I don’t trust the Nationals offense, and that is going to be the difference here. The Rangers' offense at times has been inconsistent, but they are going to score at least six runs here, and that will be the difference as the Nationals will get the job done. Back the Nationals on the money line.
