Washington Nationals Preview

The Nationals are three games under 500 and they really need to work on their game percentage, though the team has bagged two out of three games in their last matches. This is their first series of the season in which they will be playing against the Braves. They scored 21 runs in winning two of their last three games while only scoring three runs in the loss. They avoided dropping to the basement of the NL East in their last game, which was a 6-5 win over the Baltimore Orioles. Nationals scored three runs in their first inning and their star player Juan Soto was 2 for 3 with two RBI. Anibel Sanchez has been hit hard in all three of his starts. According to Stat Salt, Sanchez only lasted two 2/3 innings in an 11-6 loss to the New York Mets and he has surrendered 14 runs in only 13 innings of work.
