The Atlanta Braves were destroyed in their two game interleague series against the Astros. Atlanta gave up 26 runs on 39 hits by the Astros at Sun Trust Field.
I don’t know if there is any way to build confidence off that two game series other than Houston is the best team in the league right now.
Atlanta will send R.A. Dickey (6-5, 4.44 ERA) to the mound. Dickey seems to continue to gets wins over his extended career.
Dickey last faced the Nationals on June 13th.
He pitched five innings, allowing eight hits, eight runs (all earned) and three home runs in a 10-5 loss to the Nationals.
Washington is 5-4 over their last nine games, and ready to take on the Braves in game two of their four game series. The Nationals game against the Mets on July 5th was postponed, so that gave the team an unexpected day to rest.
The Washington Nationals will send Ace Max Scherzer (10-5, 1.94 ERA) to earn another win. Scherzer has been Cy Young level again in the first half of the season. Scherzer faced the Braves on May 20th.
He pitched his shortest outing of the year.
He went five innings, allowing four hits, three runs (all earned) and two home runs in the 3-1 loss.

Free Atlanta Braves vs. Washington Nationals MLB Prediction:
I’m sure Scherzer remembers his last outing against the Braves, and being the great pitcher that he is, I expect him to last seven or eight innings earning a win. Take the Nationals in this game.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: UNDER the Number
With R.A. Dickey pitching, the Nationals will have faced him three time this year. The third time around I feel the Nationals will get plenty of runs. I like the total to stay under 8.
