New York Mets vs. Washington Nationals

New York Mets

The New York Mets have been playing some of their best baseballs of late, winning seven straight games after dropping their first two following the All-Star break. The team's offense can do a lot of damage, as it ranks fourth in the league with an average of 4.76 runs per game. They are led by Pete Alonso, who has 27 home runs and 86 RBIs. The rest of the lineup features several weapons that can also help contribute to the team's success.

The return of Jacob deGrom has added to the strength of the pitching staff, as it allows the team to keep its opponents to a low average of 3.76 runs per game. The combination of deGrom and the rest of the rotation has also led to the third-highest whiff rate in the league. Chris Bassitt will look to bounce back from his last start, which was a poor performance, as he allowed four runs in six innings against Miami.

Washington Nationals

 The Washington Nationals are amid a dreadful season, and things are about to worsen. On Tuesday, they dealt their two best offensive players, Juan Soto and Joshua Bell, to the San Diego Padres in exchange for a package of prospects. The move ensures that the team will be among the league's worst at the end of the year.

The Nationals are currently 27th in the league in offense, with an average of 3.9 runs per game. They will be without their two best offensive players and look for a lineup that doesn't produce much offensive punch to fall even further behind.

The Nationals have been struggling on the mound all season, and they are currently last in the league, allowing 5.6 runs per game. They have also given up the most home runs in the league at 1.5 per contest. Hoping to get their offense going again is Anibal Sanchez, who has a record of 0-3 and a dreadful 7.47 ERA. In his last start, he was roughed up by the St. Louis Cardinals, allowing six runs on six hits in just five innings.
