The MLB is back in action today as the Washington Nationals will clash with the Atlanta Braves at SunTrust Park in Atlanta, Georgia. The Nationals will give the nod to Jefry Rodriguez and he will be opposed by Julio Teheran.
Washington Nationals Form
The Nationals tried their best to reach a playoff spot in recent weeks. They enjoyed a nice five-game winning streak, however, that ended against the Cubs on Thursday. They were one of the main favourites to win their division but they failed to achieve the expected results. They will use these games in order to regroup and rebuild for the next season. They were just an unlucky team this season.
On the offensive side of the game, the Nationals are solid this season as they are placed on the 11th spot in the league in scoring, putting up 4.67 runs per game. They are also placed on the 10th spot in hitting at .245 and 13th spot in homers with a total of 175 so far.
On the mound, they have been below average as they are placed on the 16th spot in the league in ERA at 3.99, while also being on the 9th place in WHIP at 1.24 and 10th spot in K’s with 1281.
Atlanta Braves Form
The Braves are having a good season so far. They are now the favourites to win their division which will be their 2nd in the last 13 years. Also, they have won their last five games and it seems that they are unstoppable at the moment. The Braves have averaged 4.80 runs per game and have allowed 4.30 runs per game at home this year. The Braves will start this game with Julio Teheran record against the Nationals stands at 6-5 with a 4.12 ERA in 20 career starts against the Nationals.
On the offensive side of the game, they have been solid so far as they are placed on the 8th spot in the league in scoring, putting up 4.73 runs per game, while also being on the 3rd spot in hitting at .260 and 16th place in homers with 165 so far. On the mound, they have been decent as they are placed on the 6th spot in the league in ERA at 3.69 while also being on the 13th place in WHIP at 1.27 and 11th spot in K’s with 1279.
The Nationals are having a bad season. They tried their best in the last few weeks and it seems that they have run out of gas. On the other side, the Braves are having a good season and it seems that they will win their division. They are also in a good form at the moment and I can’t see them slipping in this game. Go for the Braves in this one.
