Today’s matchup is between the Washington Nationals (21-29) and the Atlanta Braves (25-26). The Nationals have won 1 of their last 5 games & the Braves have won 3 of their last 5 games.

The Nationals are starting Stephen Strasburg (RHP), on the mound who is 1-2 on the season pitching a 4.43 ERA, 5.62 FIP, .307 wOBA, K% of 22.7%, BB% of 13.6%, 91.8 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.33 WHIP in 20.1 innings pitched.

The Braves are starting Max Fried (LHP), who is 2-2 on the season with a 4.63 ERA, 4.11 FIP, .350 wOBA, K% of 21.8%, BB% of 9.0%, 85.4 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.49 WHIP in 35.0 innings pitched.

The Nationals are 19th in the Majors in Relieving Pitching (WAR) while the Braves are 17th.

On the hitting side, the Nationals have a .313 wOBA and a .321 OBP. The Braves have a .326 wOBA and a .316 OBP. The Nationals have 48 HRs this season while the Braves have 80 HRs.

This is a tough one to call. Max Fried isn't that good of a pitcher while Strasburg hasn't been in great form. I'll side with the Braves in this one feeling their hitting is going to be the difference in this game.
