Well, there were no lack of fireworks in Game 1 of this series yesterday where the Nationals beat the Giants 3-0. Bryce Harper was hit by a pitch and charged the mound in a bench clearing brawl and you can be sure tensions will be high in this game.
The Nationals have won 3 of their last 4 games and they are atop the NL East with a pretty comfortable 8.5 game lead the New York Mets and Atlanta Braves.
The Giants had won 2 in a row before the loss to the Nats yesterday and they are in 4th place in the NL West 11 games back of the Colorado Rockies.
This season the Nationals pitching has been decent ranking 14th in the Majors in ERA, but the lineup has been their strength scoring the most runs in baseball.
Harper leads the Nats in HR and RBI and while he may play in this one he is likely facing a suspension.
In their win over the Giants in the first game of this series they scored 3 runs on 8 hits and while they also gave up 8 hits Washington held San Francisco scoreless.
Gio Gonzalez (3-1, 2.90 ERA ERA) gave up 2 earned runs in 5 innings in his last start, which was a 4-2 loss to the Seattle Mariners. The Nationals have lost his last 4 starts and in his last 2 road starts he has gone 11 innings and given up 10 earned runs.
In 11 career starts against San Francisco Gonzalez is 4-4 with a pretty solid ERA of 2.96.
The Nationals have lost 12 of Gonzalez’s last 17 road starts and they have lost 9 of his last 11 road starts facing a team with a losing record.
The Nationals have lost 7 of their last 10 road games against the Giants.
This season the Nationals are 15-10 on the road.
San Francisco Giants
This season the Giants rank a respectable 16th in the Majors in team ERA, but only 29th in runs scored.
In their shutout loss to the Nationals yesterday the Giants got no clutch hitting and they left 9 men on base.
Jeff Samardzija (1-6, 4.50 ERA) takes the hill in this game and in his last start he gave up 3 earned runs in 7 innings in a 5-1 loss to the Chicago Cubs. The Giants had won his previous 2 starts where he went 14 innings and gave up three earned runs.
After a terrible start to the season Samardzija has pitched pretty well in his last few outings. In 14 career appearances against the Nats, including 7 starts Samardzija is 2-5 with an ERA of 3.83.
The Giants have lost 8 of their last 11 home games with Samardzija on the mound and they have lost 12 of their last 16 games facing a team with a winning record when he has gotten the start.
This season the Giants are 13-12 at home.

Free Washington Nationals vs. San Francisco Giants MLB Prediction:
Even though the Nationals lead the Majors in runs scored their lineup has not been lighting up the scoreboard as of late. Also, in the last 6 games between these teams in San Francisco the total has gone Under, which is a trend that will continue tonight.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: UNDER the Number
Both pitcher’s in tonight’s match up have had their issues on the season and while Gonzalez has not looked good in his last 2 road starts Samardzija has been decent as of late. I think he will have a good start tonight and the Giants will take this Game 2 in a low scoring game.
