Note the early start time to this one, I assume because it is the Fourth of July in the nation’s capital.
Washington is playing really good ball lately and is comfortable in first in the East. Milwaukee is not going to do anything significant this season but at the same time they have proven respectable.
You wonder if they might gut this team over the next couple of weeks though.
The Brewers are not a good team but they have been respectable of late.
They have a few bats that can scare you and a couple of pitchers who are half decent.
Their problem is depth which is why they overall numbers are nothing to write home about. Backing them has to be all about finding the right situations.
This does not look like one of them.
Junior Guerra may not get a lot of mainstream press but hopefully you have picked up on the fact that when he pitches the Brew Crew usually wins. They are 9-2 in his starts and his peripherals support being an above average pitcher.
He has cleared a lot of units because the team is 4-1 when he is a dog like he is in this situation.
The Nats are comfortably in first but they probably still need to improve their team if they want to complete with Chicago and San Francisco in the NL. They need more offense.
Even though this offense erupts from time to time it is pretty easy to tame in innings when Bryce Harper and Daniel Murphy do not bat.
Wilson Ramos has been a nice surprise batting .336 so far.
Max Scherzer is getting no attention this season. All he is doing is striking out guys like crazy and winning two thirds of the time…and tying records with 20Ks in a game.
When he is on the hill it is very difficult to bet against him because he is the rare ace who will finish what he starts.
He has had four straight starts with 10 or more K and the Brewers love to wave at the ball.

Free Milwaukee Brewers vs. Washington Nationals MLB Prediction:
If you are going to back the Brewers Guerra is the guy. He won outright in a game in which they were dogs against Los Angeles just last week. It was not against Kershaw though, and Scherzer, is pretty darn close.
If you are going to go with Washington you have to take them on the runline or else there is really no point. It is not worth the risk. The early start time will be interesting for both teams.

Washington is the simple play. It it tempting to get down on this early contest, all novelty times and events get our attention, just don’t get too cute with this play. It might be wise to even take a pass. There i a full day of action to come.
