San Diego Padres
The Padres are still keeping pace with the Dodgers though they are going to need more from their offense long term if they want to keep that up. They have been getting great pitching but that is going to be harder to sustain. Eric Hosmer has to hit. So far the new additions and lack of pressure are still not helping him.
Matt Strahm has made four starts with middling results. His last start was his best as he went 8 innings against Cincinnati but the Padres are just 1-3 when he takes the hill. He has been much sharper on the road though. San Diego’s bullpen is Top Ten in ERA so they are doing OK there.
The Nats are scoring but there pitching is letting them down. Adam Eaton, Victor Robles and Juan Soto are one of the best outfields in the Majors but it has not been enough to overcome a team ERA that is over 5. Until they start pitching better this is a .500 club at best.
Max Scherzer is striking out a ton of guys so I am not that worried that his ERA is higher than normal. Some hits are getting in there and those things will balance out eventually for one of the best hurlers in the game. What is not helping is that the Nats have the worst bullpen ERA in the game – over 7.

Free San Diego Padres vs. Washington Nationals MLB Prediction:
When Scherzer is on the hill it is tough to bet against Washington. He is one of the few where it is hard to take the ball from him.

I will go with the Nats here and assume we need the run line to make it worth our while. They can cover that when they win.
