The Nationals’ star hitter, Bryce Harper, will probably face a suspension for his altercation with Giants’ reliever Hunter Strickland on Monday. However, there will likely be an appeal process for the suspensions handed, so he may still be available for the series. Harper currently leads the NL with 15 homers and sits 3rd in WAR at 2.6. Ryan Zimmerman
Taking the mound will be one of the top-3 pitchers in the league, Max Scherzer, who has 89 Ks and a 2.77 ERA through 10 starts this year. His WHIP currently sits below 1.00 at 0.94. Koda Glover has taken over the closing duties and has looked excellent since being appointed to the 9th inning, throwing four perfect outings over the past week.
San Francisco Giants
The Giants’ offense has been horrendous this season, besting the MLB-worst Kansas City Royals by just seven runs with 179 on the year. In comparison, their Washington opponents this game have a MLB leading 274, almost a full 100 runs more in 1/3rd of a season. Buster Posey needs some help around him in the lineup, as he’s doing his best to lead the team with a .333 average and 7 HR, but just 11 RBI somehow.
Matt Cain was once one of the more dominant pitchers in the league, earning two World Series rings while a part of a 1-2 duo alongside Tim Lincecum. Cain is no longer the starter he once was though, currently owning a 4.45 ERA and a 1.50 WHIP with just a 36:24 K/BB rate. He is now 32 and hasn’t been a quality starter in five years.

Free Washington Nationals vs. San Francisco Giants MLB Prediction:
The Nats, even without Bryce Harper should he miss the contest, crush the Giants in offensive production and are sending one of the game’s best pitchers to the hill. Scherzer essentially has to avoid making mistakes to either Buster Posey or Brandon Belt and he should be able to cruise through the game.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Washington -1.5
Daniel Murphy, Bryce Harper, Ryan Zimmerman, Trea Turner, Anthony Rendon and Jason Werth would all be a top-two hitter on the Giants. As is stands, all of them comprise the heart of Washington’s lineup and have the luxury of facing the 32-year old version of Matt Cain.
