Nationals Offense Needs to Bounce Back

The Nationals' offense really struggled on Monday against the St. Louis Cardinals. The Nationals failed to score any runs, and they ended up losing 6-0. Even more disappointing was failing to score any runs when they had eight hits. The Nationals are averaging 4.23 runs, while their pitching is giving up 4.42 runs per game. The offense is ranked 18th in the league, while the pitching is ranked 19th. CJ Abrams has hit 14 home runs and driven in 46 RBIs so far this season. 

Mets Fall Back Below .500

The Mets scored only two runs on Monday, while the pitching gave up eight runs. Brandon Nimmo hit a home run and drove in two RBIs, but that was the only offense they could get going. The Mets are averaging 4.82 runs, while their pitching is giving up 4.77 runs per game. The offense is ranked 9th in the league, while the pitching is ranked 25th in the league. They have a run differential of 0.05 which is 16th in the league. Pete Alonso has hit 18 home runs and driven in 48 RBis so far this season. Getting the start for the Mets will be Jose Quintana, who sits with a 3-5 record and an ERA of 4.22. In his last start against the Washington Nationals, he went seven innings, giving up four hits and zero runs. The Mets offense failed to score a run in that game, though, and they ended up losing. The Mets will meet the Rockies after this series.

Washington Nationals vs New York Mets Prediction

Quintana at times hasn’t gotten run support, but he’s going to have another strong start here. Quintana in his last start gave up four hits and zero runs, and he’s going to really lockdown again here. The Mets offense is going to really struggle to get the offense going here, and that will be the difference here, as this game is going to end up being lower scoring. Back the under to cash here with ease.
