This interleague matchup includes two of the top teams in their respective conferences.
The Cleveland Indians have really been playing well, but recently got swept by the Baltimore Orioles.
The Washington Nationals have been one of the best teams in the NL for much of this season, they look to bounce back to start the week.
The Cleveland Indians lineup has been hitting the ball better as of lately. They are led in hitting by Francisco Lindor.
Lindor is currently hitting .303 with 33 extra base hits and he has knocked in 30 runs this season. He is paced by Jason Kipnis who is having one of the best seasons of his career.
The Indians are led in home runs by Mike Napoli with 22. Napoli is also hitting .244 on the season and has driven in 68 runs so far.
The Indians have Danny Salazar on the mound on Tuesday and he has been one of baseball’s best. Salazar is currently 11-3 on the season with a 2.75 E.R.A. and 125 strikeouts.
Salazar looked good in his last start in a victory against the Kansas City Royals. He pitched in 6.2 innings where he gave up 2 earned runs on 8 hits.
Salazar also walked 1 and struck out 7 in the win against the Royals.
The Washington Nationals have been one of baseball’s best hitting teams this season. They are led by Daniel Murphy who has led the MLB in average since the beginning of the season.
Murphy is hitting .355 on the season with 30 doubles; Murphy looks to stay hot in this one against the Tribe.
Wilson Ramos is right behind Murphy in average with a .337 average. He has also hit 31 extra base hits and has knocked in 53 runs this season.
Bryce Harper is having a down year, but it has been a good year for anyone else. Harper is hitting .244 with 20 dingers and 55 RBIs.
The Nationals will have their hands full on Tuesday with Salazar.
The Nats have Gio Gonzalez on the mound Tuesday and he has not been pitching at a high level this season. Gonzalez is currently 6-8 on the season with a 4.53 E.R.A. and 110 strikeouts.
As Gio has been struggling for much of the season, he received a win in his last start against the Los Angeles Dodgers. He pitched in 6 innings of work where he gave up only 1 earned run on 3 hits.
Gonzalez got 6 strikeouts and only walked 2 batters in the win. He looks to keep rolling on Tuesday.

Free Cleveland Indians vs. Washington Nationals MLB Prediction:
This one includes some of the most exciting teams in baseball currently. I look for the Indians to take this one on the road.
Danny Salazar has been pitching like the best pitcher in the American League. I look for Salazar to stay dominate in this one against the Nats and come out with the win.
The Nationals can swing the stick, but Gonzalez has not been pitching well enough to beat the Indians in this one. Look for Gonzalez to get knocked around in this one as the Indians were cold at the plate over the weekend.
