This interleague matchup includes the state of Maryland rivalry in which both teams are having a season to remember.
The Baltimore Orioles have been up and down for most of this season, where they cannot seem to take control of the AL East.
The Washington Nationals have been cruising for most of this season; they currently stand 8 games ahead of their division.
The Baltimore Orioles lineup has been one of their strongest parts of their team all season. They are led by star player Manny Machado.
Machado is currently hitting .302 on the season with 65 extra base hits and 74 runs batted in. Pacing him this season with Johnathon Schoop hitting .284 with 31 doubles and 65 RBIs so far.
Mark Trumbo has cooled off after a hot summer he’s had. Trumbo is currently hitting .256 with a team high 38 home runs to go with a team high 92 RBIs.
The Orioles have newly acquired Wade Miley on the mound Wednesday against the Nats.
Miley has only pitched in Baltimore for 4 starts since being acquired from the Mariners, he is currently 2-2 on the season with a 9.53 E.R.A. and 13 strikeouts while being in Baltimore.
Miley got beat around in his last start in a no decision against the Houston Astros. Miley made it only 1.2 innings where he gave up 6 earned runs on 6 hits.
Miley did not have control issues in which he did not walk a batter and struck out all 5 batters in which he recorded outs. He will look to bounce back from that bad start at home.
The Washington Nationals lineup has been very strong for most of this season. Daniel Murphy has led the National League most of this season.
Murphy is hitting .347 on the season with 36 doubles and 90 RBIs. Wilson Ramos has struggled here in August, he is now down to a .319 average with 40 extra base hits and 67 RBIs.
Bryce Harper’s production has been down for the most part this season. He is hitting .244 with 22 home runs with 68 RBIs.
The Nationals have Tanner Roark on the mound Wednesday in the Maryland battle. Roarke is currently 13-6 with a 2,87 E.R.A. and 130 strikeouts.
He got the no decision in his last start against the Atlanta Braves. He pitched in 6.1 innings where he gave up 3 earned runs on 4 hits.
Roarke also struck out 3 batters and walked 3 in the no decision.
He looks to bring his A game against the powerful O’s lineup.

Free Baltimore Orioles vs Washington Nationals MLB Prediction:
The battle of Maryland baseball teams series will be a very good one to take a look at. I’m taking the Nationals at home in this one, Miley seems to have been struggling since he has moved to Baltimore.
I look for the Nationals tough lineup to knock Miley around in this one and they will be a hurting on him Wednesday. I look for Roarke to pitch well enough to bring out the victory in this one.
