The Washington Nationals have scored 5 runs in their last 3 games and 3 or fewer runs in 7 of their last 9 games. The Nationals have lost 8 of their last 10 games when scoring 3 or fewer runs. Cesar Hernandez leads the Nationals with 79 hits and 18 RBI, while Josh Bell and Maikel Franco have combined for 146 hits and 77 RBI.

Matt Bush gets the ball, and he is 2-1 with a 4.21 ERA and 34 strikeouts this season. This will be Bush’s second career game against the Nationals.

The Texas Rangers are the better team, but they’re going in with a bullpen game and Matt Bush has been rough this month, allowing 9 hits and 5 runs in his last 8 innings. While the Washington Nationals have no offense to speak of, Josiah Gray has been terrific as of late, allowing 9 hits and 1 earned run in his last 17 innings. In 33.1 innings on the road, Gray has a 1.89 ERA and .181 allowed batting average. The Nationals are worth a look here.
