Nationals Offense Looks to Bounce Back

The Nationals scored only a run on Friday and that wasn’t enough to get the job done. Patrick Corbin had a solid start, but the bullpen had issues. Jacob Burnes went 0.1 innings giving up one hit and three runs. The Nationals are averaging 4.04 runs per game, while their pitching is giving up 4.2 runs per game. The offense is ranked 22nd in the league, while the pitching is ranked 12th. In this game, the Nationals need to get the offense out to a fast start. Getting the start for the Nationals will be Mitchell Parker who sits with a 4-2 record and an ERA of 3.45. In his last start against the Atlanta Braves, he went 6.1 innings giving up five hits and three earned runs. 

Guardians Continue to Win

The Guardians continue to win games and they currently sit with a 38-19 record overall. Catcher David Fry had a stron game finishing with one home run and three runs driven in. The Guardians are averaging 5.11 runs while their pitching is giving up 3.79 runs per game. The offense is ranked 2nd in the league while the pitching is ranked 10th. They have a run differential of 1.32 which is 5th in the league. Jose Ramirez is having a strong season hitting a 16 home runs and driving in 56 RBIs. Getting the start for the Guardians will be Ben Lively who sits with a 4-2 record and an ERA of 2.80. In his last start against the Angels, he went seven innings giving up four hits and two runs. 

Washington Nationals vs Cleveland Guardians Prediction

This game is going to be lower scoring. I don’t trust the Nationals offense against Ben Lively who has been strong this season. Mitchell Parker hasn’t been exactly elite this season but he does with an ERA of 3.45 and he’s going to step up in a big way in this game. The Guardians are also going to struggle to score, and this game is going to stay undre the total. Back the under to cash.
