The Nationals are starting Patrick Corbin (LHP), on the mound who is 3-4 on the season pitching a 6.23 ERA, 5.57 FIP, .379 wOBA, K% of 18.1%, BB% of 8.8%, 89.6 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.52 WHIP in 52.0 innings pitched.
The Braves are starting Tucker Davidson (LHP), who is 0-0 on the season with a 4.50 ERA, 4.13 FIP, .290 wOBA, K% of 21.7%, BB% of 4.3%, 84.3 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.00 WHIP in 6.0 innings pitched.
The Nationals are 19th in the Majors in Relieving Pitching (WAR) while the Braves are 18th.
On the hitting side, the Nationals have a .311 wOBA and a .320 OBP. The Braves have a .324 wOBA and a .316 OBP. The Nationals have 51 HRs this season while the Braves have 82 HRs.
Martin Perez (Red Sox) is the better starting pitcher even though Jake Odorizzi has an almost 7 ERA in only 13 innings, I'm sure by the end of the season it will be closer to a 4 ERA. The Red Sox also have an advantage in relief pitching & batting so that's my pick to win the game!
