Washington Nationals vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction:
This is a matchup between 2 teams that are really not that good. I do look for the Mets to play well in game 2 on Saturday.
The Mets are the better team and they have to show that in this game if they have any hope to gain some kind of ground. They cannot afford to lose to Washington.
I look for Stroman to pitch a good game and for his team to hit around Nolin.
Give me the Mets on the run line.
