San Francisco Giants
The San Francisco Giants lineup has been up and down for most of this season. They are led by Buster Posey for another season.
Posey is leading the team in average with .291; he is also leading the team with 12 home runs and has also knocked in 50 runs this season.
Brandon Belt is having another solid year; he is hitting .286 on the season with 27 doubles and has knocked in 53 runs on the year.
Brandon Crawford is leading the team in RBIs with 66; he is also hitting .268 on the year with 33 extra base hits.
The Giants have Jeff Samardzija on the bump against the Nationals on Friday. He is currently 9-7 on the season with a 4.30 E.R.A. and has posted 99 strikeouts.
Samardzija was last in action against the Washington Nationals where he went down in defeat. He pitched in 6 innings of work where he gave up 4 earned runs on 7 hits.
He also walked 2 batters and struck out 2 in the matchup.
Look for Samardzija to try and come out in a different approach in this one.
The Washington Nationals lineup has been on fire for most of this season. They have been led the entire time by Daniel Murphy.
Murphy is hitting .358 on the season with 58 extra base hits and a team high 80 RBIs. Wilson Ramos is right behind Murphy; he is hitting .331 on the season with 16 home runs and has knocked in 59 runs on the year.
Bryce Harper has been struggling the past month of the season; he is hitting .234 on the season with 20 dingers and 56 RBIs. The Nationals will look to knock Samardzija around in this one.
The Nationals have Gio Gonzalez on the bump Friday. Gio is currently 6-9 on the year with a 4.29 E.R.A. and 115 strikeouts.
He last pitched against the San Francisco Giants in a loss. He pitched in 6 innings of work giving up only 1 earned run on 6 hits. Gonzalez walked 2 batters and only struck out 1 batter in the loss.
He looks to bounce back against this same Giants lineup.

Free San Francisco Giants vs. Washington Nationals MLB Prediction:
This matchup includes a rematch of last week; both of these pitchers fell in their last start to the same team. I look for the Nationals to take this one at home.
It seems like Samardzija has been struggling this season and I look for him to continue to doing that in this one. The Nats lineup is scary to see as an opposing pitcher and I look for them to get ahead quick in this one.
