Washington Nationals Analysis

The Nationals are limping into this game with a 65-82 record, far removed from their championship season just a few years ago. The offense has a batting average of .255 with 631 runs scored and 1269 hits. They’ve hit 135 home runs, showing moderate power but not enough to overpower opponents consistently. The on-base percentage stands at .315, suggesting a lack of plate discipline, while the slugging percentage is at .395.

Jake Irvin, the starting pitcher for the Nationals, holds a 3-5 record with a 4.2 ERA, and a 1.35 WHIP over 113.2 innings pitched. With 92 strikeouts and 46 walks, he’s been somewhat effective but not a dominant force on the mound. His 18 home runs allowed also indicate that he can be susceptible to big innings.

Milwaukee Brewers Analysis

The Brewers are comfortably in contention with an 82-64 record. Their offense, however, has some cold spots, demonstrated by a .238 batting average, although they have scored 646 runs with 1146 hits and 147 home runs. Their on-base percentage (.317) and slugging percentage (.379) indicate a team that’s slightly better than their batting average would suggest at getting runners on and moving them over.

Veteran pitcher Wade Miley will start for the Brewers. Miley holds an impressive 7-4 record with a stellar 3.3 ERA and 1.14 WHIP. Over 103.2 innings, he has allowed just 85 hits, struck out 67, and walked 33. His 15 home runs allowed indicate a fairly controlled long-ball situation.

Washington Nationals vs. Milwaukee Brewers Against the Spread

Starting with the Washington Nationals, they’ve been struggling as of late, with a 1-4 straight-up (SU) record in their last 5 games. This isn’t encouraging if you’re considering backing them. Their away performance has also been lackluster, standing at 2-6 SU in their last 8 road games. However, it’s worth noting that they’ve shown a surprising level of competitiveness against the Brewers, having gone 5-2 SU in their last 7 encounters. This might imply that they match up well against this particular opponent, despite their overall subpar record.

For the Milwaukee Brewers, they are entering this game with strong momentum, boasting a 5-2 SU record in their last 7 games. They have been particularly dominant at home, going 11-2 SU in their last 13 games at American Family Field. Additionally, they’ve done well against the Nationals at home, with a 4-1 SU record in their last 5 home games against Washington. This bodes well for their chances in tonight’s game, especially when combined with the edge they have in starting pitching.
