Fedde was solid in his last outing as he picked up his second win of the season in a 3-1 win over the Philadelphia Phillies.
He went 5.2 scoreless-innings giving up just two hits while he struck out nine and walked two.
In 38.2 innings of work this season, Fedde owns a decent 8.15 K/9, a solid 3.03 BB/9, a high 1.40 HR/9, and a low 71.4% LOB%.
The end-result is a high 5.12 ERA to go with a more representative 4.37 FIP.
Washington has played solid baseball in the past week winning five of their seven contests.
During that span their lineup is slashing .231/.345/.423 to go with 24 extra-base hits and 37 RBI.
Newcomb was solid in his last outing as he put in a quality start and picked up his 12th win of the season in a 4-1 win over the San Francisco Giants.

In 155.1 innings of work this season, the lefty owns a decent 8.58 K/9, a high 4.29 BB/9, a solid 0.93 HR/9, and a decent 74.5% LOB%.

Washington edges out Atlanta on the road.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Nationals First 5 Innings
Fedde has been solid in September posting a slash line of .162/.244/.270, but he is about to face an Atlanta lineup that has risen out of a slump.
Newcomb has been solid in September as well posting a .184/.286/.216, and will have the hotter lineup backing him up.
Washington doesn’t hit as well against lefties, but they have gone 2-1 against them in their last three outings, meanwhile Washington can take advantage of Newcomb’s porous BB/9 rate.
I’ll take my chances on the road dogs through the first five innings in this one as I expect Washington’s lineup to work Newcomb for some runs.
