They're batting for .246 AVG, 375 runs scored in 806 hits and 76 home runs, ranking #27 in offense in the league, behind the Los Angeles Angels. Josh Bell has a batting average of .308, 13 home runs and 51 RBI. Juan Soto leads the team in home runs with 20.

Josiah Gray (7-6, 4.40 ERA) will be on the mound for the Nationals in the 2nd game of the series. In the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Mariners, Gray suffered the loss after allowing five runs on six hits, including three home runs, and three walks over five innings as the Nationals lost 6-4. Seven were called out. He has allowed 7 runs on 5 hits with 3 walks and 5 strikeouts in 3 innings versus the Dodgers in his career. He has been charged with the loss.
Los Angeles Dodgers
The Dodgers get here with a 56-29 record and have won 9 of their last 10 games. The team is averaging 5.14 runs per game and they're batting for .256 AVG, 488 runs scored in 824 hits and 124 home runs, ranking #2 in offense in the league behind the New York Yankees. Mookie Bets leads the team batting for .266 AVG. and 22 home runs. Trea Turner has 69 RBI.
Defensively they are allowing 3.26 runs per game and rank #1 in the league. Tony Gonsolin leads the team with a 2.26 ERA, 90 strikeouts and 11 wins recorded.
Probable Pitcher: Mitch White (1-2, 3.78 ERA)
White will be on the mound in the 2nd game of the series for the Dodgers. Despite only giving up one hit and two walks over more than five innings of shutout baseball on Thursday against San Francisco, White was not a factor in the decision. He hasn't pitched against the Nationals in his career.
Washington Nationals are 2-6 SU in their last 8 games on the road.
The total has gone UNDER in 10 of Washington's last 13 games when playing on the road against LA Dodgers.
LA Dodgers are 11-1 SU in their last 12 games at home.
LA Dodgers are 13-2 SU in their last 15 games against an opponent in the National League.
The Dodgers were shut down by the Nationals in the first game of the series as they scored only one run against a team that is ranking #30 in defense in the league. LA will try to bounce back by sending Mitch White to the mound who just pitched 5 scoreless innings against the Giants in his last start. The Nationals will send Josiah Gray to start this game who has struggled all season and already got rocked by the Dodgers earlier this season allowing 7 runs in only 3 innings. Look for the Dodgers to get their revenge at home and win this game by multiple runs.
PICK: Dodgers -1.5 (-130)
