New York Mets vs Washington Nationals Prediction

This is a crazy quick turnaround, and spots like this usually favor the home team. And while the Mets are playing some of their best ball of the season, the Nationals continue to hang around a .500 mark, and they have the pitching edge in this matchup. Jake Irvin has quietly been a top-25 pitcher this season with a 3.03 ERA and 1.06 WHIP. Irvin has given up a lot of traffic this season, but he finds ways to limit the damage and keep the Nats in it. Assuming the price isn't anything crazy, I'll roll with the Nationals in game 4 against the Mets.
