This NL matchup includes two of the top teams in the division.
The Washington Nationals have one of the best records in the MLB; they stand at the top of the division.
The New York Mets have been up and down lately, they are behind the Nationals in the division.
The Washington Nationals lineup has been very impressive for much of this season. The Nats are led by Daniel Murphy who has been leading the majors in hitting for most of the season, hitting .349 so far.
Murphy also has knocked 23 doubles and 56 runs in this season going into the break. Pacing him is Wilson Ramos who is also near the top of the batting average leaders, hitting .335.
Ramos has also hit 29 extra base hits and has 46 RBIs this season. Danny Espinosa has come out lately, he leads the team in home runs with 18, and he also has an average of .246 with 49 RBIs.
The Nationals have Lucas Giolito on the mound for his second start of the season. His last start was also against the Mets where he looked good in the short amount of time he was out there.
Giolito pitched in 4 scoreless innings where he only gave up 1 hit. He struck out only 1 batter and walked 2. He looks to pitch well against the Mets again on Thursday.
New York Mets
The New York Mets lineup has not been stationary or consistent for much of this year. They are led by all-star starter Yoenis Cespedes.
Yo leads the team in most hitting categories, in which he has a .304 batting average and has hit 21 bombs with 51 runs batted in. Asdrubal Cabrera is producing well for the Mets; he has a .262 average with 16 doubles and has knocked in 27 runs.
Neil Walker was a big pick up for the Mets this season, he is hitting .262 this season with 15 dingers and 35 RBIs.
The Mets look to knock around Giolito this time around.
The New York Mets have the veteran of the staff, Bartolo Colon, on the mound Thursday. Colon is having another solid year; he currently stands at 7-4 on the year with a 2.87 E.R.A and 63 strikeouts.
Bartolo came out with the victory in his last start against the Chicago Cubs and he got his 2,300th career strikeout. Colon pitched in 6 innings where he gave up 2 earned runs on 4 hits.
Colon also walked 3 batters and fanned 5 in the win. He looks to have another quality start on Thursday.
Free Washington Nationals vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction:
This divisional battle is going to be interesting for the rest of the season, just as it was last season. I’m taking the Mets in this one. Colon vs Giolito, there are a lot of years between the two lives of these pitchers.
Look for this Mets lineup to knock around Giolito this time, as they were not able to in his last start.
Colon will be able to keep this hot Nats lineup in check long enough to take a win at home in this divisional series.
