Washington Nationals vs. Baltimore Orioles MLB Prediction:
The Nationals lost game 1 of the series where they had the advantage with the starting pitcher. They do not have that advantage in this game.
Washington is the better team, but they clearly did not show that in game 1. I am not convinced they will show that in this one either.
I look for the Orioles to hit around Jon Lester and for John Means to toss a solid game.
I am going with the Orioles on the moneyline.
