MLB Match Preview -- San Diego Padres vs Washington Nationals

 

San Diego Padres

The San Diego Padres’ relievers own the lowest ERA in baseball (2.87), but in the last two weeks, that raised to 3.44, and the Padres have relied on their relievers since an Opening Day. The Padres are scoring 4.62 runs per contest (12th in the majors), and in the last 15 days, they’ve posted the best OPS in baseball (.830) while batting .262. During that stretch, the Padres have smacked 21 dingers through 12 games. They are 12-5 in the last 17 games overall and 9-2 in the last 11 games at home.

 

 

Washington Nationals 

The Washington Nationals put an end to a four-game losing streak with that 7-5 victory over the Padres. They scored five runs through the first two frames, while Josh Bell’s homer broke a 5-5 tie in the top of the seventh. The Nats finished with 12 hits and fully deserved a win, their third straight at Petco Park. Washington is scoring only 4.06 runs per game (26th in the majors), but over the last 15 days, the Nationals have scored 77 runs in 14 outings while slashing .268/.347/.465. On the other side of the ball, they’ve registered a pedestrian 5.25 ERA in that span.

 

Prediction

Expect San Diego Padres to win this clash. The Padres are one of the best teams in the majors, so the hosts are listed at -170 to win on Wednesday.
