The MLB brings more action today as the Washington Nationals will clash with the Arizona Diamondbacks. This is game one of a three-game series from Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona.
Washington Nationals Form
The Nationals have been chasing the Atlanta Braves in the National League East and after winning game one of that series, they were down just 4.5 games. However, they did not manage to keep that pace as they are now 6.0 games behind the Braves. The Nationals are a good team and they bolstered their squad during the transfer window. However, that might not be enough for them this season.
Moreover, their away form stands at 26-26 so far this season.
On the offensive side of the game, the Nationals score an average of 5.00 runs per game, while also being on the 10th spot in hitting at .257 and 17th in homers with 146. On the mound, they are 14th in the league in ERA at 4.35, while also ranking 13th in WHIP at 1.31 and 4th in K’s with 1023.
Arizona Diamondbacks Form
The Diamondbacks are not playing well at the moment. Moreover, they have been suffering for a while now as they won only 7 of their last 17 games in the MLB.
The Diamondbacks are still just 3.5 games out of the 2nd wildcard slot. However, they have a strong offence this season and they just pull out a playoff spot this season.
On the offensive side of the game, the 5.12 runs per game, while also being on the 9th in hitting at .258 and 16th in homers with 151. On the mound, they are placed on the 10th in the league in ERA at 4.32, while also being 8th in WHIP at 1.28 and 12th in K’s with 960.
The Nationals are a solid away team this season. However, the Diamondbacks need the win more in order to keep their pace in the race for a playoff spot. Their chances are more realistic to get into the postseason. Therefore, I expect them to use their home ground advantage in order to win this game. Take Arizona in this one.
