The San Diego built plenty of momentum for themselves in these two teams’ previous meeting an they will look to keep that rolling this Saturday, as they once again take on the Washington Nationals at Nationals Park in D.C.
San Diego Padres
That was quite the display of batting the Padres put on in their last game beating this Nationals team by a score of 24-8 and after a game like that it is no surprise that this betting total has already gone up half a run from the opener.
Jake Cronenworth, the Padres 27 year old rookie, hit for the cycle in that game which was a pretty awesome cherry on top for this Padres team who now looks primed for a big run in the second half of the season.
The Padres have plenty of other batting power in this lineup as well, with guys like Tatis, Machado and Myers all contributing to an offense which currently ranks 6th in the majors for total runs scored.
Blake Snell is the projected starter for this game entering with a 4.99 ERA which is certainly disappointing for a guy of his caliber and it remains to be seen whether or not he will be able to turn it around down the stretch.
The Washington Nationals are a bit of a confusing team, as they have some decent pitching and a batting lineup who can certainly score runs, but they have just not been able to get it going this year in any kind of meaningful way and you hope now that they are a bit more healthy that they can have a good second half of the season and compete for this division.
The main guy to look out for coming out of the All-Star break is Juan Soto who has been one of the most exciting young players in baseball over the past couple years, but did get off to a slow start this year due to injury.
Patrick Corbin will get the call to the mound for Washington and he comes into this one of the back of a quality start against this Padres team where he went 6 innings and only gave up 2 runs on 7 hits.

Free San Diego Padres vs. Washington Nationals MLB Prediction:
These teams can both crush the ball even if the Nationals have not shown that at times this season and I do not see why this game can’t go back over the total with these two pitchers on the mound who have not been overly convincing this year.
