New York Mets
The Mets have had a good season so far and they come into this game playing well.
They are in first place in the very competitive National League East with a record of 36-27. They are 5 games ahead of the Phillies.
New York took 3 out of 4 against the Cubs earlier this week. They outscored Chicago 14-9 in those games.
David Peterson pitched 4.2 innings and gave up 1 earned run in the Mets win in game 2. They won this by a score of 5-1.
Taijuan Walker has had a very impressive year. He has a 6-2 record with a 2.12 ERA. His last outing came on Tuesday when he went 7 innings and gave up 2 runs against the Cubs.
The New York pitching has been great this year as they are tied for 1st with a 3.07 ERA. This staff has been lead by the best pitcher in baseball, Jacob deGrom. Marcus Stroman has also been good for this team .
The Mets offense has really struggled this year. They are ranked 28th in baseball scoring 3.76 runs per game. Shortstop Francisco Lindor has not lived up to the massive contract he signed in the offseason. He will look to get his hitting back on track.
Lindor is hitting .209 with 6 home runs and 16 RBI.
The Mets have only hit 62 home runs which is 2nd to last across MLB.
The Nationals have not played that well this season, but have been playing better as of late.
With a record of 31-36 they are 4th in the National League East. The Mets are 7 games ahead of them.
Before the series against New York, Washington swept the Pirates in 3 games. The Nats outscored the Pirates 14-3.
Patrick Corbin has not been his usual self this year. He has a 4-5 record and a 5.60 ERA.
As a whole, their pitching staff has been very good with an ERA of 3.79. This mark is 12th best in baseball.
Like the Mets, this offense has not been producing a lot of runs. They rank 29th in baseball with 3.76 runs scored per game.
They have hit 65 home runs which is 26th best.

New York Mets vs. Washington Nationals MLB Prediction:
To me, this should be a good matchup between 2 NL East rivals.
There has not been a lot offense in this series and I expect that to continue in this game.
Taijuan Walker has been the better pitcher this year. This is the main reason that I am confident for the Mets to win this game. I do not anticipate the Nationals scoring a lot of runs and I feel that the Mets can do enough against Corbin to get a win.
I will take the Mets as -120 favorites in the road.
