The Washington Nationals and Milwaukee Brewers play game three Saturday afternoon.
The Washington Nationals need a win after losing five of their last six games. The Nationals have scored 14 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last eight games. The Nationals have split their last six games when scoring more than three runs. Yunel Escobar and Bryce Harper have combined for 134 hits and 64 RBI while Ryan Zimmerman has 34 RBI. The Washington Nationals have lost six of their last seven road games. Joe Ross gets the nod, and he’s 0-1 with a 5.40 ERA and four strikeouts this season. This will be Ross’ first career game against the Brewers.

The Milwaukee Brewers looks to stay hot after winning five of their last seven games. The Brewers have scored 14 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last nine games. The Brewers have won five straight games when scoring more than three runs. Adam Lind leads Milwaukee with 58 hits and 33 RBI while Ryan Braun and Aramis Ramirez have combined for 65 RBI. The Milwaukee Brewers have split their last six home games. Jimmy Nelson takes the hill, and he’s 3-6 with a 4.05 ERA and 67 strikeouts this season. This will be Nelson’s first career game against the Nationals.
The Nationals are 8-3 in their last 11 during game 3 of a series and 1-6 in their last 7 games vs. a right-handed starter. The Brewers are 8-21 in their last 29 during game 3 of a series and 4-13 in Nelsons last 17 starts. The Nationals are 9-19 in the last 28 meetings in Milwaukee.
The Nationals continue to play like dog crap, and I'm tired of picking them to turn things around while they continue to suck. So, the Brewers or no play has to be the pick.
