Prior to this series, the Nationals lost two out of three against Minnesota, were swept by Philadelphia, and lost two out of three against the White Sox.

Seattle Mariners vs Washington Nationals Prediction 

Seattle comes into this game trying to avoid the sweep, but their offensive attack has been one of the worst in baseball this year. The Mariners have had pretty solid pitching, but the offense continues to let them down. Seattle is starting Bryan Woo, who has unbelievable numbers through three starts, while Washington is going with Mitchell Parker, who has also been solid. Woo has been great so far this season and I don’t think the Washington lineup is going to change that. My Seattle Mariners vs Washington Nationals prediction is for the Mariners to win by at least two runs.
