San Diego Padres
San Diego hasn’t lost a series since the Nationals were out on the West Coast and took two out of three at Petco Park to begin their hot streak.
The Friars are fresh off of taking three of four from the Pirates at PNC Park so they are already adjusted to playing on the East Coast and playing well at that.
Eric Lauer, a first round pick just two years ago, will make his sixth career start. He beat the Dodgers with six shutout innings a couple of weeks back but none of the other starts have gone particularly well.
Lauer has given up 44 baserunners in 22 innings and has struck out 18. He started the one game in the Pittsburgh series that the Padres lost.
Washington did not catch any sort of break last week. It was playing phenomenal baseball, having won 13 out of its last 15, but then had five days off due to rain and scheduled off-days before playing three games in roughly 24 hours on Saturday and Sunday.
The Nats lost all three of those games to the Dodgers, who hope to finally generate some momentum with the sweep. Alex Wood finally got his first win in the finale on Sunday.
So now the Nats have to start over, just three games above .500 and four full games behind Atlanta, and in fourth-place, in the division.
Jeremy Hellickson has been as good as he’s ever been so far this season. Let us wait and see if he maintains his torrid pace.

Free San Diego Padres vs. Washington Nationals MLB Prediction: San Diego.
This is strictly a value play. San Diego is going to fetch a huge number and I just don’t have the confidence in the Nats to squash teams they should be squashing.
