Washington Nationals vs. San Diego Padres, last game of the series against the Padres, the Nats have already won the first 2 games, the series belongs to the home team, now we just need to win this game to add another victory in the regular season. The Padres can win, but this season the outlook for them is obscure.
Washington Nationals: It has not been the best start to the season.
The Nationals have had a couple of problems to start the season well, they started winning the first four games in the opening week against the Reds 2-0, but after the first four victories the Nats suffered a lossing streak of 5 games, those games they included a series against Atlanta and another against the Mets.
This series against the Padres was easy, the first game ended 8-5 with the Nats scoring the first run in the first inning, the second game 4-0, the first 2 races in the 5th inning to take the lead in the game .
At home the Nationals are scoring a low average of 4.75 runs per game, 4.56 walks and they are suffering up to 8.14 strikes out. The team is batting an average of 8.06 hits, up to half a hit more than the visitors, home runs at home have been below 1.31 per game, but still missing
The best batters of the Nats are Bryce Harper are 12 home runs this season with .237, Turner with 12 RBI, Kendrick with 11 RBI, and Zimmerman with 16 RBI.
San Diego Padres: The team needs to improve for the rest of the season.
It’s too early to say that the Padres do not have a chance to get to the post season, but the Padres do not do well on the road, 6 wins and 9 losses with a .400 ERA, the Padres have won only one series on the road against Colorado Rockies.
Padres has already won the third and final game of the series against the Nats during the first series they had in Washington. The problem is that the Nats are scoring many more runs at home and the Padres on the road only score 3.73 runs on average, 7.73 hits and receive up to 10.40 strike outs. The average at bat for parents is at .229, it is a low average.
This game is interesting for a couple of things, the Nats want to start to recover a positive record that they had lost and the Padres want to win to add more victories in the regular season.
