The Washington Nationals will host the San Francisco Giants in the first game of a four-game series on Friday.
The series opener on Thursday was postponed due to weather and the game was pushed back a day with the same pitchers.
These two franchises had not met since 2019, when Washington took 5 of the 6 head-to-head match-ups.
San Francisco Giants
The Giants enter this series after losing to the Texas Rangers 4-3 in 11-innings, during a day game Wednesday. Even with the loss, San Francisco is now 38-23 which is good enough for the best record in the Major Leagues.
Shortstop Brandon Crawford has been a powerhouse for the Giants, leading the team in Home Runs (14) and RBI’s (41). Catcher Buster Posey is having one of his best seasons in recent years, leading the team in batting average (.336), OBP (.411) and hits (50).
Offensively, the Giants are 7th in baseball, averaging 4.8 runs per game, and 15th with a .237 batting.
Washington enters this series with momentum after winning on Wednesday night 9-7 over the AL best Tampa Bay Rays in extras. Starlin Castro hit an RBI double during a two-run 11th inning to recapture the lead and Tanner Rainey escaped after having runners on first and second with no outs in the bottom of the 11th for his first save.
Shortstop Trea Turner has been the main means of production for the Nationals, leading the club with a .312 batting average, 10 home runs, 30 RBI, and 13 stolen bases.
The Nationals are 25th in MLB, averaging 3.8 runs per game, and 7th with a .246 team batting average.

Free San Francisco Giants vs. Washington Nationals MLB Prediction:
San Francisco has been arguably the biggest surprise of the MLB season so far, leading the league into the middle of June. They’ve been an overall well balanced team and have been led by the veteran presence of Buster Posey and Brandon Crawford.
Its a bit surprising the Giants are such big underdogs on the road, especially considering they carry a winning road record into this series while the Nationals have a losing home record.
Max Scherzer is undoubtedly one of the best pitchers in the league but Anthony DeSclafani is not a pitcher to overlook either. He’s 5-2 on the year with a 3.51 ERA and 1.11 WHIP.
I’ll take the value with the Giants in game 1 and see them getting back in the win column.
