They're batting for .247 AVG, 393 runs scored in 841 hits and 79 home runs, ranking #26 in offense in the league, behind the Los Angeles Angels.

Defensively they are allowing 5.45 runs per game and ranking #30, the worst in the league. Josiah Gray leads the team with a 4.59 ERA, 118 strikeouts and 7 wins recorded for the Nationals.
Probable Pitcher: Patrick Corbin (4-14, 6.49 ERA)
Corbin will be on the mound in the 1st game of the series for Washington. Corbin took the loss in a 7-1 loss to the Dodgers on Wednesday after allowing six earned runs on seven hits, a walk, and no strikeouts over two-thirds of an inning. He has a record of 5-9 with an ERA of 4.51 and 125 strikeouts in 23 appearances versus the Mets in his career.
New York Mets
The Mets get here with a 64-37 record and have won their last 6 games. The team is averaging 4.66 runs per game. They're batting for .253 AVG, 466 runs scored in 859 hits and 101 home runs, ranking #6 in offense in the league tied with the Milwaukee Brewers.

Defensively they are allowing 3.74 runs per game and rank #4 in the league. Chris Bassit leads the pitching staff with a 3.83 ERA, 117 strikeouts and 7 wins recorded with the NY Mets.
Probable Pitcher: Max Scherzer (6-2, 2.09 ERA)
Scherzer will be on the mound in the 1st game of the series for the Mets. On Wednesday, Scherzer pitched seven scoreless innings in the Mets' victory against the Yankees, allowing just five hits, two walks, and one hit hitter. He had six strikeouts but he did not factor in the decision. He has a 2-0 record with an ERA of 5.03 and 21 strikeouts in 4 appearances against the Nationals in his career.
NY Mets are 7-1 SU in their last 8 games on the road.
The total has gone UNDER in 4 of NY Mets' last 5 games when playing on the road against Washington.
Washington Nationals are 5-12 SU in their last 17 games against an opponent in the National League.
Washington Nationals are 2-12 SU in their last 14 games at home.
These are headed in opposite directions. The Mets are on a roll and have won 6 straight games, they're also strong candidates to play the World Series while the Nationals rank last in defense allowin over 5 runs per game and have been awful at home with a 16-38 record. This series is going to be a nightmare for the Nats, they'll fafce Max Scherzer who has been on fire since his return and will face tomorrow Jacob DeGrom who's back from the injury list. Patrick Corbin is one of the worst pitchers in the league so expect a total blowout on this one. Take the Mets.
