This interleague matchup includes two teams that are currently ahead of their respective divisions.
The Cleveland Indians have been playing up and down for the past month; they currently stand at 2 games ahead.
The Washington Nationals have been playing very well all of this season where they are currently 7 games ahead of the division.
The Cleveland Indians lineup has been hitting the ball as of late and they are still led by Francisco Lindor. Lindor is hitting .306 on the season with 34 extra base hits and has knocked in 55 runs this year.
Jason Kipnis has a career high 19 home runs to go along with .284 on the season while having 61 RBIs. Mike Napoli has team high 28 home runs to go with 79 RBIs and has a .253 average on the season.
They look to battle against the tough Scherzer.
The Indians have Trevor Bauer on the mound Tuesday on the road. He is currently 7-5 on the season with a 4.08 E.R.A. and 107 strikeouts.
He got knocked around in his last start against the Minnesota Twins. Bauer pitched in only 2.2 innings where he gave up 7 earned runs on 8 hits.
He walked 5 batters in the start and struck out only one in the hard loss. He looks to bounce back quickly against one of the league’s best.
The Washington Nationals lineup has been red hot most of this season. The Washington Nationals are led by Daniel Murphy.
Murphy is hitting .350 on the season with 32 doubles and has a team high 81 RBIs. Wilson Ramos is having another solid season; he is hitting .338 with 18 dingers and 62 runs batted in.
Bryce Harper is currently struggling, hitting .233 with 20 home runs and 57 RBIs. The Nats lineup will look to stay hot here in August.
The Nationals have Max Scherzer on the bump on Tuesday. He is currently 12-6 on the season with a 2.87 E.R.A. and has posted 198 strikeouts.
Scherzer looked very good in his last start against the Arizona Diamondbacks in a win. He pitched in 8 innings of work where he gave up 3 earned runs on 4 hits.
Scherzer walked only 1 batter and struck out 11 in the win. He looks to continue his success here in the second half.

Free Cleveland Indians vs. Washington Nationals MLB Prediction:
This one will be a good matchup all week; both of these teams have been playing good baseball for most of this season. I look for the Nationals to take this one on Tuesday.
I look for Scherzer to take control of this game early as the Indians seem to have a tough time going up against quality pitching.
Look for the Nationals lineup to beat up Bauer as he has not pitched well as of late.
