This National League matchups includes some of the NL’s best.
The Washington Nationals are playing very well, with Daniel Murphy leading the way heading back to New York.
The New York Mets look to get Matt Harvey moving in this NL matchup.
The Washington Nationals bats have been fairly decent for most of the year, and it is led by former New York Met Daniel Murphy.
Murphy is leading all of baseball in batting average of just under .400 at .399. he also has 23 doubles, 5 home runs, and 23 runs batted in.
An overall great start for Murphy. Behind him is the former MVP Bryce Harper.
Harper is leading the team in home runs (11) and runs batted in (29) while hitting .256 so far this year. Ryan Zimmerman has struggled in the 4 hole this year for the Nats.
Zimmerman is hitting .237 with 31 strikeouts.
The Nats send their superstar pitcher Stephen Strasburg out in New York.
Strasburg is currently 6-0 with a 2.95 E.R.A and 65 strikeouts. He looked good in his last showdown against Miami where he got the win.
He pitched 6 innings of work only giving up 5 hits and 3 earned runs in the victory.
He also walked 4 batters and struck out 7 Marlins. Strasburg looks to stay perfect as a Cy Young season is in question.
New York Mets
The New York Mets lineup lost baseballs best hitter currently, but they have not struggled at the plate themselves.
They are led in hitting by Michael Confornto, who has come on as of late. Confornto is hitting .283 on the year with 6 home runs and 21 runs batted in.
Yoenis Cespedes is having another great year as a Met. He is hitting .282 with a team leading 12 home runs and 32 runs batted in.
As the Mets lost Murphy, they acquired Neil Walker and he has produced very well so far. Walker is hitting .260 on the year with 10 home runs and 20 RBI’s on the year.
The Met lineup has a big showdown with one of the NL’s best.
The Mets send former ace pitcher Matt Harvey to the mound. With some nagging injuries Harvey has struggled a bit.
He is currently 3-5 with a 4.93 E.R.A and 41 strikeouts on the year.
Harvey was last in action in a loss in Colorado. He threw 5.2 innings of work giving up 11 hits and 5 earned runs. He did not walk a batter and struck out 6 batters.
Harvey looks to get back into the action where he was dominant at times like last year.

Free Washington Nationals vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction:
I look for this game to be exciting on both sides of the game.
These pitchers have the capability of going 9 shutout innings, and these lineups have the capability of scoring 8 runs in the game.
I’m taking the Nationals in this one, mainly because of Strasburg. Coming off the big contract, Strasburg did not disappoint in his last start.

I also really like this lineup that the Nats field. I look for Murphy did make a big comeback to New York and he’ll do it in style.
Look for Strasburg to keep the score low in this one. Nats by a hair.
