The Arizona Diamondbacks and the Washington Nationals will wrap up their MLB series on Sunday.

The Diamondbacks won Thursday 5-0 in game one of this set, and the Nats took one 7-3 Friday. In the Saturday game, Arizona got it going again with a 10-3 win.
For Sunday’s game, the Diamondbacks will be sending out Archie Bradley in the start. Over his 2-3 record, Bradley has a 4.26 ERA with 40 Ks to his credit.

Arizona logged 15 hits in the Saturday victory. The big hitter for the Diamondbacks there was Nick Ahmed with four hits, a double, a triple, two runs and an RBI.

Over on the Nationals’ side, they’re going with Anibal Sanchez on Sunday. Across his 59.2 innings and 2-6 mark so far, Sanchez has a 3.92 ERA with 56 Ks and 28 BBs.

Washington’s offense made the most of their 10 hits on Saturday. Trea Turner led the way for the Nets with his three hits, triple and a plated run.

The Diamondbacks are 4-12 in their last 16 Sunday games and 3-9 in their last 12 in game four of a series. The over is 5-2 in Arizona’s last seven in game four of a series and the under is 5-2 in the last seven games versus a starter with a WHIP greater than 1.30.

Meanwhile, the Nationals are 4-0 in Sanchez’s last four starts and 4-1 in his last five home starts. The under is 4-1 in Washington’s last five in game four of a series and they’re 4-0 in Sanchez’s last four starts on grass.

Sanchez had some ugly outings and some bad luck in the win column earlier this year, but things are going better these days. Over his last three starts, Sanchez has just two earned on nine hits in a span of 17.1 innings and is 2-0 during that time.

Provided Sanchez can keep his solid streak going, this looks like a good spot to take Washington.
