The Mets and Nationals faceoff Wednesday afternoon in Nationals Park.
While the Mets have played well as of late, they lost their most recent game to the Nationals on Monday night.
The Nationals continue to roll by winning four in a row and have a firm 10 game hold over their division rivals, Mets.
Starting for New York will be Robert Gsellman, he’s 2-1 with a 3.92 ERA and 1.50 WHIP. Taking the rubber for the Nationals will be Tanner Roark, he’s 14-8 with a 2.85 ERA and 1.19 WHIP.
The Mets currently hold the final Wild Cart spot with the Cardinals breathing down their necks.
Although they are one of the worst run producing teams in the MLB this season, they’ve had a bit of an offensive spark as of late.
They’ve scored five or more runs in six of their last eight games but they generated just one run against the Nationals on Monday, where they lost 8-1.
While the run production has been better, they will be looking to Gsellman to have another great outing against Washington.
He started against them on Sept 3rd at home and gave up just one run over six innings of work.
However, in his last start against the lowly Braves, he gave up four runs over five innings.
The Nationals playoff aspirations are all but sealed mathematically, their mammoth lead over the Mets should hold up.
So with that being said, the Nationals are playing solid ball as they prepare for the post-season.
They are one of the top run producing teams in the league (sixth) and proved that with a eight runs against the Mets Monday night.
With the wins coming at a premium and run production coming consistently, it’s a bonus to have a guy like Roark on the mound.
He’s been a rock all season and gave up just one run over six innings in his last start, which came against the Phillies.
He took on the Mets with this sae pitching matchup just 10 days ago, where he went five innings and gave up just two runs.
In his last three starts combined, he’s given up a grand total of three runs over 18 innnings.

Free NY Mets vs. Washington Nationals MLB Prediction:
While the Mets haven’t scored much overall on the season, they’ve had a recent surge and have hit well. This will be offset by Roark pitching so well though, they likely won’t score more than three for the game since the bullpen is strong too.
The Nationals score plenty and are producing at their season average over their last four games but the Mets young righty gave up just one against him just 10 days ago.
However, I still think the Nationals get to him since they are at home this time around and Gsellman still gave up six hits and three walks over six innings in that one.
Nationals will likely score four or five.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Under 9
With Roark on the mound for the Nationals and the way they hit, they will likely come out on top.
MLB Free Score Prediction: Mets 3 – Nationals 5
