Yesterday, the Washington Nationals bounced back into the series after an unexpected 5-1 win over the New York Mets at home and today they’ll try to keep the ball rolling in the last encounter of their three-game set.
The Nationals victory was a special one, considering that they traded superstar hitter Juan Soto along with Josh Bell to the San Diego Padres on Tuesday morning and got a haul of prospects in return.
Washington has been among the worst teams in the MLB this year. They’ll be trying to piece together a roster for the rest of the season to wrap things up, and then start preparing for what could be a bright future with all their new prospects.
Anibal Sanchez is making his 4th start of the season for the Washington Nationals. He is holding a 0-3 record with a 7.47 ERA and a 1.40 WHIP over 15.2 innings pitched while striking out 13. The 38-year-old righty allowed 6 runs on 6 hits and 2 walks across 5.2 frames against the St. Louis Cardinals in his last outing.
The New York Mets are coming off a recent victory against the New York Yankees in a doubleheader and a 3-0 series win over the Miami Marlins last weekend. The pitching matchup is heavily in favor of New York, which should be enough for them to be in control of this game.
Chris Bassitt is taking on the mound for the New York Mets, making this his 20th start of the season. He is carrying a 7-7 record with a 3.83 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP over 115 innings pitched while striking out 117.
Bassitt allowed 4 earned runs on 6 hits and 4 walks against Miami in his last appearance. He’s been going deep in almost all of his outings, pitching at least 6 frames in 7 consecutive appearances.
