Cashner was able to put in a quality start in his last outing, but unfortunately was tagged with his eighth loss of the season against the Toronto Blue Jays. He went six innings giving up nine hits, three earned runs, and two home runs while he struck out four and walked two.
He doesn’t have a great strikeout (7.71 K/9) to walk (4.23 BB/9) rate, and he has been struggling to keep the ball in the park (1.62 HR/9). The end result has been a 4.98 ERA and 5.17 FIP, but once his unlucky .346 BABIP regresses, we should see those numbers dip a tad.
Baltimore continues their losing ways as they have only won one of their five contests in the past week. During that span their lineup is slashing .253/.326/.371 to go with 12 extra-base hits and 19 RBI.
Gonzalez was roughed up in his last outing in interleague play against the Toronto Blue Jays who tagged him with his third loss of the season. He went six innings giving up nine hits, five earned runs, and two home runs while striking out three and walking two.
Gonzalez will get to face a sub-par Baltimore lineup that ranks 10th in strikeouts and 26th in walks. Despite his recent struggles, he should be able to contain this lineup that owns a .671 OPS against lefties.
Washington has been struggling in the past week as they could only muster one win out of their last six contests. During that span their lineup is slashing .241/.305/.312 to go with 10 extra-base hits and 15 RBI.

Free Baltimore Orioles vs. Washington Nationals MLB Prediction: Washington edges out Baltimore at home
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Orioles +1.5 & UNDER 9 Runs
Baltimore’s bats have been showing some life, while Washington’s bats have been playing sub-par baseball. Although Cashner has been sub-par, even on the road, Gonzalez’ recent struggles makes it too hard to trust Washington to cover the run line. Washington may get the win, but I expect Baltimore to play competitively and keep the score close.
