This NL matchup includes two teams on different scales of the league.
The Washington Nationals could be baseballs best hitting team; they stand on top of the division.
The Cincinnati Reds started off hot, but has gone ice cold here as of late.
The Cincinnati Reds lineup is not what is holding them back from success this season. Jay Bruce leads the team in hitting with a .279 batting average. Bruce has also driven in a team high 59 runs to go along with 41 extra base hits.
Zack Cozart is hitting .266 with 19 doubles and 32 RBIs. Adam Duvall is near the top of home runs in the MLB with 22, he has also drove in 54 runs to go with a .254 average.
The Reds look to have a strong showing against Roarke.
The Reds have Anthony DeSclafani on the mound on Friday. He is currently 2-0 on the year with a 1.52 E.R.A and 15 strikeouts.
DeSclafani was dominant in his last start in a victory against the San Diego Padres.
He threw 8 shutout innings where he only gave up 5 hits.
He also struck out 5 batters and did not walk a batter. He’ll have his first test against the Nats this season.
The Washington Nationals have been hitting the ball very well. Daniel Murphy leads the major in batting average with a .352 average.
Murphy has hit 20 doubles this season and has a team high 53 RBIs. Wilson Ramos is right behind him in average, hitting .339; he has hit 26 extra base hits to go along with 43 RBIs.
Bryce Harper is off to another good start, with team high 16 home runs to go with 46 RBIs and has hit a .256 average. The Nats lineup looks to keep rolling here to start the month of July.
The Nats have Tanner Roark on the mound and he has pitched well this season. He is currently 7-5 on the year with a 2.96 E.R.A and 89 strikeouts.
He looked very good in his last start against the Milwaukee Brewers where he received a victory. He pitched in 7 innings of work where he gave up 0 earned runs to go with 7 hits.
Roarke walked 1 batter and struck out 7 in the ballgame. He looks to keep rolling in this game against the Reds.

Free Cincinnati Reds vs. Washington Nationals MLB Prediction:
This matchup looks to be lopsided in this one, I’m taking the Nationals. I do not think that DeSclafani is as good as he pitched his past couple starts.
I look for the Nats to be the team to beat him around in this one. The Nationals lineup has been so tough to contain and it won’t start now.
