The MLB is back in action today as the Washington Nationals grapple with the Los Angeles Dodgers at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California. This is game three of their four-game series. These teams split the first two games of the series.
Washington Nationals Form
The Nationals were one of the main favourites at the start of the season. However, it seems that this team is having trouble to solidify their pitching. They record so far this season is not very good and Max Scherzer stats are not impressive either as he stands at 1-4 with an average of 3.78 ERA on the year. Also, it will be hard for him as he will be facing a Los Angeles team that has strong offensive firepower. Furthermore, it is important to emphasize that the Nats’ offence is not very consistent this season. They won the first game with 6-0 and lost the second with a score of 5-0. Therefore, it is safe to say that they need to improve their consistency.
On the offensive side of the game, the Nationals score an average of 4.50 runs per game. Therefore, this is enough for the 20th spot in the league in scoring. Also, they have 51 homers so far this season which is enough for the 13th spot.
On the mound, they have a low record so far this season as they are placed on the 23rd place in the league in ERA with an average of .241
Los Angeles Dodgers Form
The Dodgers did not have a good start of the series as they lost the first game with a score of 6-0. However, this is a strong team and they were to bounce back with a solid 5-0 win in the second game. Also, they showed some great play as Joc Pederson scored two homers which took his total to 12 so far this season.
The Dodgers are playing well this season and their record so far stands at 26-15. Therefore, this is the best record in the MLB and they also have a 3 game lead over the rival Diamondbacks in the NLW.
On the offensive side of the game, the Dodgers score an average of 5.34 runs per game. Also, they have 66 homers so far this season. Therefore, this record is enough for the 4th spot in the league in scoring.
On the mound, they have been solid as they come in ranked 7th in the league in ERA at 3.78.
The Nations are not consistent enough this season and that can be seen through their results. On the other side, the Dodgers are a strong offensive team and they have been consistent. Also, they have the best record so far and I can’t see them dropping another game against Washington. Therefore, take the Dodgers in this one.
