Washington Nationals vs. Baltimore Orioles MLB Prediction:
The Nationals still have a chance to catch the Mets if they start to play better baseball. They have a good chance to do that against the Orioles.
Washington is the better team and they will need to show that on Friday.
Patrick Corbin really needs to get back on track. He may not be great, but I look for him to do enough against Baltimore to help his team get a win.
I will lay take the Nationals at even money in this one.
