Preview

The Washington Nationals and the New York Mets will play the 3rd game of the series at the Citi Field on Wednesday. The Mets outscored the Nationals again 10-0 on Tuesday night and have the lead 2-0 on the series. 

Washington Nationals

The Nationals get here with a 18-33 record and have lost 3 of their last 4 games. The team is averaging 4.1 runs per game but allowing 5.2 runs. Josh Bell has a batting average of .298, 4 home runs and 28 RBI. Juan Soto leads the team in home runs with 9.

Josiah Gray leads the team with a 5.08 ERA, 54 strikeouts and 5 wins recorded for the Nationals.

Probable Pitcher: 

Evan Lee (0-0, 0.00 ERA) will start for the Nats in the 3rd game of the series. The Nationals are planning to call up Lee from Double-A Harrisburg to start Wednesday's game against the Mets in New York. He's holding a 3.60 ERA with 12 runs earned in 30 innings pitched at Harrisburg.

New York Mets

The Mets get here with a 34-17 record and have won 7 of their last 9 games. The team is averaging 4.96 runs per game and allowing 3.85 runs. Jeff McNeil is batting for .317 AVG while Pete Alonso leads with 13 home runs and 47 RBI.

Trevor Williams (1-3) pitched five shutout innings against the Nats.

Probable Pitcher:

Carlos Carrasco (5-1, 3.98 ERA) will be on the mound for the Mets in the 3rd game of the series. Carrasco picked up the win in Friday's 8-6 victory over the Phillies, giving up five runs on six hits and a walk over 5.2 innings. He struck out seven. In his last 2 starts against the Nats this season, he has allowed only 3 runs and 10 strikeouts in 12.1 innings pitched, with 1 win recorded and a no decision.

BETTING TRENDS

Washington are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games on the road.

Washington are 1-8 SU in their last 9 games when playing on the road against NY Mets.

NY Mets are 5-0 SU in their last 5 games.

The total has gone OVER in 7 of NY Mets' last 7 games at home.

Prediction

The Mets continue to be one of the hottest teams in the league and they have scored 8.4 runs per game in their last 5 wins. The Nationals will send a rookie to the mound so there aren't much hopes for the Nats on this one. Take the Mets for the sweep.

PICK: Mets -1.5 (-120)
