The Washington Nationals find themselves in a tough spot here on Saturday traveling to Oracle Park in San Francisco for this matchup against the Giants, and if they want any chance of tracking down the Mets in the NL East they will need to win some of the tougher games like this one.
Washington has done themselves no problems in the last couple weeks going 2-6 in their last 8 games putting themselves behind the eight ball in terms of the division. This team does have the players, at least on paper, to make a run though, with guys like Juan Soto getting healthy and possibly propelling this team to a post season berth.
The offense was alive and well in their last series against the Padres scoring 27 runs during those three games but unfortunately for Nationals fans this team still managed to lose that series due to some pretty bad pitching.
Jon Lester will get the call to the hill and he will need to find his best stuff here, as he comes in here off of the back of a poor effort against the Padres where he allowed 5 runs off of 6 hits in just 3.1 innings of work.
San Francisco Giants
The Giants have been surprisingly awesome this year, but they are going through a bit of a rough patch only winning 4 of their last 10 games and that really does not worry me too much, as this roster is so deep and has so much chemistry that I think they can turn things around pretty quickly.
The San Francisco Giants should have the pitching advantage here in this game, like they have had in many games this year, as they send DeSclafani to the mound who is very likely to have a good performance here entering the contest with a 2.84 ERA.

Free Washington Nationals vs. San Francisco Giants MLB Prediction:
The Nationals offense is well and truly rolling at this point, but I think they will struggle in this spot against Anthony DeSclafani who has been lights out this year. The Giants have an excellent offense themselves, and will be much better positioned to take advantage of it going up against Jon Lester here who I do not have a ton of confidence in at this point.
The other advantage is that even if both of these pitchers give up runs early, the Giants bullpen is better then the Nationals one, so they will have a chance to come up with a late win should DeSclafani struggle.
