Pick, Prediction, & Preview:
Washington Nationals vs New York Yankees
The New York Yankees play host to the Washington Nationals on Wednesday night at Yankee Stadium. It’s a battle of first place teams in their respective divisions. The Yankees have the best record in baseball and are the team to beat. They are coming off of a loss to their subway rival, New York Mets, but don’t let that surprising loss fool you. They are for real.
The Washington Nationals, on the other hand, haven’t had such an easy road, but have proven worthy of their first-place standing in the NL East. They possess a strong bullpen with the ability to bat in runs. On the mound, Stephen Strasburg (6-6, 3.46 ERA) will battle it out against another right-hander, Stephen Gray (4-4, 4.81 ERA).
Washington Nationals's Latest Performance :
The Washington Nationals have had a couple of setbacks with injuries, but Bryce Harper and Daninel Murphy are set to make their returns to action which only bolsters an already strong roster. Max Scherzer has been one of the hottest pitchers in the National League. Granted Scherzer was on the receiving end of a loss to San Francisco on Sunday, his only blemish was a 2-run homer
New York Yankees's Latest Performance :
The New York Yankees are off to another hot start and their bullpen is on fire. Losing to a Mets team who had lost eight in a row at home and scored only six runs in six games, is disappointing, but hardly a setback. The Yankees were shut out for the first time this season by the Mets and lost Masahiro Tanaka in the series opener, but they are deep and skilled at every position.
