The Nationals have lost 3 in a row and it no surprise they got the L last night facing Clayton Kershaw. Luckily no other team is really stepping up to take advantage in the NL East, as Washington still has a 5.5 game cushion over the Marlins and Mets.
The Dodgers have won 4 in a row and are 5.5 games back of the San Francisco Giants in the NL West.
The Dodgers have won 5 of their last 6 games facing the Nationals.
In yesterday’s game the Dodgers beat the Nationals 4-1.
The Nationals rank 11th in the Majors in runs scored and in their 3-game skid they have only totaled 7 runs. Their strength is their pitching ranking 4th in team ERA.
Tanner Roark (6-4 3.14 ERA) gets the nod for the Nationals and while he gave up 4 earned runs in 6 innings in his last start the Nationals’ offense helped him out in a 8-5 win over the San Diego Padres. The Nats have won his last 4 starts.
In Roark’s last 3 starts he did not give up an earned run in 1, but in the other 2 combined to give up 9. Still, in that span Washington combined to score 26 runs.
Roark has 2 relief appearances facing the Dodgers. But tonight will be the first start of his career against them.
The Nationals have the best road record in the bigs (23-16), but have lost 3 straight away from the Nation’s Capital.
The Dodgers rank 17th in runs scored and 3rd in team ERA.
Scott Kazmir (5-3, 4.64 ERA) gets the starting nod for the Dodgers tonight and he gave up 3 earned runs in 4 innings in in his last start, which was a 8-6 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers. The Dodgers have lost his last 2 starts.
Kazmir has given up 3 earned runs in each of his last 3 starts.
Kazmir has not faced the Nationals since the 2014 season.
At least the Dodgers’ bullpen was not taxed in last night’s win over the Nationals, as they may be needed tonight. Kazmir has not lasted past the 5th inning in his last 3 starts and has not lasted past the 6th in his last 6 starts.
The Dodgers are 21-15 at home this season.

Free Washington Nationals vs. L.A. Dodgers MLB Prediction:
I think Roark will be decent tonight, but the reason the Nationals will win is their slumping offense will wake up facing Kazmir.

With tonight’s starters take the Over, as this will not be a pitcher’s duel.
