New York Mets
Oswalt pitched in relief his last outing as he put in 2.2 innings of work in a 3-5 loss to the Boston Red Sox.
He went 2.2 innings giving up three hits and an unearned run while he struck out three and walked one.
In 55.2 innings of work this season, Oswalt owns a weak 5.98 K/9, a solid 2.43 BB/9, an ugly 2.10 HR/9, and an ugly 64.7% LOB%.
The end-result is an ugly 6.31 ERA to go with a slightly lower 5.88 FIP.
New York has played sub-par baseball in the past week winning three of their seven contests.
During that span their lineup is slashing .221/.307/.388 to go with 21 extra-base hits and 30 RBI.
Roark was decent in his last outing as picked up his ninth win of the season in a 6-4 victory over the Atlanta Braves.
He went 5.1 innings giving up five hits, two earned runs, and one home run while he struck out three and walked two.
In 180.1 innings of work this season, Roark owns a mediocre 7.29 K/9, a solid 2.50 BB/9, a slightly high 1.20 HR/9, and a low 72.8% LOB%.
The end-result is a slightly high 4.34 ERA and a similar 4.26 FIP.
Washington has played mediocre baseball in the past week winning three of their six contests.
During that span their lineup is slashing .245/.372/.382 to go with 17 extra-base hits and 31 RBI.

Free New York Mets vs. Washington Nationals MLB Prediction:
Washington edges out New York at home.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: OVER 9 Runs
Roark has struggled at home this season posting a 5.24 ERA to go with a slash line of .272/.325/.465, while he also owns a 7.80 ERA during this month.
Oswalt has struggled on the road owning a 7.43 ERA to go with a slash line of .302/.362/.560.
Neither lineup has been hitting that great, but I expect them to find success against both these pitchers who are looking to just get the season over with.
Roll with the total creeping over the threshold.
