Washington Nationals vs. Miami Marlins Prediction
The Nationals had their three-game win streak snapped in their last game and they are in first place in the NL East with a 10.5 game lead over the Atlanta Braves and New York Mets. Washington has totaled 22 runs in winning three in a row before only scoring one run in their last game. The Nationals have won 12 of their last 15 road games and Bryce Harper is riding an 11-game hitting streak. After winning three in a row the Marlins have lost their last two games and they are 11 games back of the Nats in the NL East. They are back at home after loosing two of three games to the Braves in their last series and they have won their last five home games. Tyler Moore is swinging a hot bat and he has five HR in his last 12 games. Raork was lit up in his last start and I look for him to struggle again. On the other side of the coin Nicolino will have a good outing in his first of the month and lead the Marlins to the win.
