Two of the game’s best pitchers face off against one another in what should be a low scoring affair in a battle of first and second place teams in the NL East.
Stephen Strasburg has had an outstanding year to date, tossing a no-hit 6 and 2/3 innings last time out in his first coming off the disabled list. He currently owns an 11-0 record on the year with a 2.71 ERA and a 1.03 WHIP with 123 strikeouts.
Closer Jonathan Papelbon is now off the DL and solidifies the back end of the bullpen.
Bryce Harper has had trouble finding pitches to hit this season, leading all of baseball with 66 walks as pitchers fear throwing him anything good to hit.
Despite the walk total, the young phenom leads the Nationals with 18 homeruns.
Daniel Murphy may be the most perennially underrated player in baseball, carrying a .345 average, 56 RBI and 110 total hits on the year.
New York Mets
If you like watching quality starting pitching duels, this is probably the game for you to watch.
On the home side of the hill, Noah “Thor” Syndergaard will bring his 2.41 ERA and 1.06 WHIP for the Mets, and like Strasburg has the equal 123 strikeouts this year.
His 9 wins lead the New York rotation that boasts fellow studs Jacob DeGrom, Stephen Matz and Matt Harvey.
In Syndergaard’s last start, the Mets exploded for 14 runs in a game where they faced a great starter in Jon Lester.
While Thor will certainly be hoping for this much run support again, the Mets will face an even better pitcher in Strasburg.
Yoenis Cespedes leads the NYM offense in all hitting categories and has earned a starting spot with the NL All-Stars next week in San Diego.

Free Washington Nationals vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction:
Despite their respective standing in the quality NL East, it’s doubtful there will be many runs scored in this one with the two pitchers chucking. I’m always scared to bet the under if its less than 7 runs, but this is a case where I can see it being a favored outcome.
