The Washington Nationals and Los Angeles Dodgers meet Thursday in MLB action at Dodger Stadium.
The Washington Nationals could use a win to snap a four-game losing streak. The Nationals have scored six runs in their last three games and three or less runs in nine of their last 10 games. The Washington Nationals are 2-18 this season when scoring three or less runs. Adam Eaton leads the Nationals with 43 hits and 11 RBI while Victor Robles and Anthony Rendon have combined for 61 hits and 32 RBI. Patrick Corbin gets the ball, and he is 2-1 with a 3.71 ERA and 50 strikeouts this season. Corbin is 4-9 with a 3.59 ERA and 93 strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.
The Los Angeles Dodgers look to stay hot after winning 10 of their last 13 games. The Dodgers have scored 23 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in their last six games. The Los Angeles Dodgers have won 10 of their last 12 games when scoring more than two runs. Cody Bellinger leads the Dodgers with 52 hits and 38 RBI while Justin Turner and Max Muncy have combined for 72 hits and 47 RBI. Rich Hill gets the ball, and he is 0-0 with a 3.60 ERA and nine strikeouts this season. Hill is 2-1 with a 3.80 ERA and 24 strikeouts in his career against the Nationals.
The Nationals are 7-21 in their last 28 during game 1 of a series, 0-4 in their last 4 road games and 0-4 in their last 4 games on grass. The Dodgers are 66-31 in their last 97 vs. National League East, 35-16 in their last 51 during game 1 of a series and 22-7 in their last 29 home games. The Nationals are 16-36 in the last 52 meetings in Los Angeles and 17-35 in the last 52 meetings. The over is 3-0-1 in Dodgers last 4 overall. The over is 5-2 in Corbins last 7 starts overall.
Getting a quality pitcher like Corbin and plus money is always intriguing, but the Dodgers have seen him a ton and have had some success against him with him spending many years in Arizona. The Washington Nationals also can't put runs on the board, so I'm not sure it matters who pitches due to a lack of support. Hill is usually money when pitching at him and the Dodgers lineup continues to tear the cover off the ball. I've said it before, but I'm not trying to step in front of these Dodgers right now. Give me the home team.
