The MLB brings more excitement this Sunday as we will see the Washington Nationals clashing with the Toronto Blue Jays at Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario in the last game of a three-game series. The Nationals will give the nod to Tanner Roark and the Blue Jays will counter with Sam Gaviglio.
Washington Nationals Form
The Washington Nationals are going through a bad patch lately. They are heading into with a low confidence as they lost the first two games against the Blue Jays. The Nationals lost the first game with a score of 6-5 and the second game ended with a score of 0-2. They will need to improve in this final game of the series if they want to get back to winning ways. The Nationals have averaged 4.46 runs per game and have allowed 3.54 runs per game on the road so far.
Tanner Roark will be playing his first game against the Blue Jays.
On the offensive side of the game, the Nationals have been below average this season as they are placed on the 16th spot in the league in scoring, putting up 4.28 runs per game, while also holding the 22nd spot in hitting at .236 and 16th place in homers with a total of 80 so far. On the mound, they are one of the best teams in the Majors as they are placed on the 3rd spot in the league in ERA at 3.32, while also being 2nd place in WHIP at 1.12 and 4th spot in K’s with 642.
Toronto Blue Jays Form
The Toronto Blue Jays did not have a performance in the series against Tampa Bay. In that series, the Jays were outscored 13-5. However, it seems the Blue Jays turned the tide as they won the first two games against the Nationals. The first game ended with a score of 5-6 and they won the second with a score of 2-0 The Blue Jays have averaged 4.67 runs per game and have allowed 4.58 runs per game at the Rogers Centre this year.
Sam Gaviglio record against the Nats stands at 1-0 with a 0.92 ERA in six games (two starts) in this ground in his career.
On the offensive side of the game, Toronto has been solid as they are placed on the 10th spot in the league in scoring, putting up 4.49 runs per game, while also holding the 25th spot in hitting at .233 and 5th place in homers with a total of 88 so far. On the mound, they have poor stats as they are placed on the 23rd spot in the league in ERA at 4.57, while also holding 25th spot in WHIP at 1.39 and 17th place in K’s with 577.
The Nationals lost the first two games of this series and they will aim to improve in this final game of this series. On the other side, the Blue Jays were dominant in the first two games. However, I believe that the Nationals will bounce back in this game. I expect a Nationals to win this one.
