Washington Nationals vs San Diego Padres Prediction 

Washington comes into this series just one game below .500 and they have played very well over the last few weeks. San Diego is right at .500, but they have just been ok over the last ten games. The Padres are starting Waldron, who has been fantastic in his last five outings. The Nationals are going with Corbin, who has been better recently, but has some very bad numbers this season. I really don’t like Corbin at all, but the Nationals have been great at finding ways to win recently. My Washington Nationals vs San Diego Padres prediction is for the Nationals to win.
