This interleague matchup includes two teams that can hit the baseball consistently.
The Washington Nationals cannot seem to get both their hitting and pitching together this season.
The Chicago White Sox were on top of the AL, but have fell back after a hot start.
The Washington Nationals lineup has been led all year by newly acquired Daniel Murphy. Murphy is hitting .379 on the year with 15 doubles and 37 runs batted in.
Murphy has been on top of the league in average for much of the year. He is paced by Anthony Rendon and Bryce Harper. Rendon is hitting .267 on the year with 6 dingers and 20 runs batted in.
Bryce Harper is having another monster year in the makings. He is only hitting .249 but he has a team high 13 home run and 37 RBIs.
The Nats lineup needs more production out of the whole in order to be successful late in the year.
The Nationals have Gio Gonzalez on the mound against the White Sox, and he hasn’t been that impressive this season. He is currently 3-4 on the year with a 3.94 E.R.A and 61 strikeouts.
Gio was last in action in a loss against the Cincinnati Reds. He threw in 6 innings of work where he gave up 5 earned runs on 9 hits.
A plus side of this game, he did strike out 8 batters and didn’t record a walk.
Chicago White Sox
The Chicago White Sox lineup seemed to be on fire early in the year when they were on top of the American League, but it seems to have cooled off. The Sox are led by Melky Cabrera.
The veteran outfielder is hitting .278 with 9 doubles and 24 runs batted in. Pacing him is the leadoff hitter Adam Eaton, Eaton is hitting .268 out of the 1 hole.
Eaton has legged out 5 triples on the year, and has 18 RBIs. Todd Frazier is mashing the ball this year where he stands second in the majors with 19 home runs.
Frazier also is hitting .221 with 42 runs batted in.
The Sox have Carlos Rodon on the hill on Thursday. Rodon is currently 2-5 on the year with a 4.41 E.R.A and 59 strikeouts.
He was last in action in a loss in Detroit. He worked in 6 innings where he gave up 4 earned runs and 7 hits.
Rodon also walked 3 batters and struck out 5. He looks to bounce back in this one against the Nats.

Free Washington Nationals vs. Chicago White Sox MLB Prediction:
I’m looking for this game to go over on Thursday as both pitchers are not throwing very well.
I’m taking the Nationals on the road. I think this lineup will simply out play the White Sox lineup with Bryce Harper leading the way.
Look for Gio to do just enough for the Nats to pull it out on the road.
