There haven’t been too many bright spots on the Washington Nationals’ roster this season. Near the end of April, the team’s record is sitting at 8-14.
Unless the team begins to turn things around, their playoff aspirations are fading fast. Despite the team’s overall struggles, Mackenzie Gore has turned in a great season thus far, averaging 6.25 strikeouts per game.
We like his chances to get more than 5 today, even against the New York Mets, who strike out just 7.5 times per game as a team.
Kodai Senga hasn’t made it past the sixth inning in any of his first four starts on the season. In fact, he has only thrown more than 93 pitches on one occasion, which happened on April 14th, against the Oakland Athletics.
Senga has proven himself to be a fantastic part of the Mets’ rotation, who will look to beat up on the Nationals tonight. We’re expecting five or six innings from Senga, which should result in less than 93.5 total pitches.
Sandy Alcantara's 2023 MLB Season is off to a poor start, just one year removed from unanimously winning the NL Cy Young. In his first three starts of the season, Alcantara only averaged 3.33 strikeouts per game.
However, in his last outing against the Arizona Diamondbacks, Alcantara had nine strikeouts in six innings of work. In tonight’s matchup with the Atlanta Braves, Alcantara looks to continue the success that he found last game.
Despite the Braves' hot start to the season, they are the fourth-leading club in terms of team strikeouts. Watch for a big strikeout outing from Alcantara tonight.
You like Jazz? So do we in tonight’s game against the Atlanta Braves. Chisholm has encountered a slow start to the season, batting just .218 on the year.
However, he is coming off a two-hit, one-RBI performance against the Braves yesterday and will look to continue that today. The Braves are rolling out Bryce Elder on the mound tonight, who has given up at least six hits in two of his last three outings.
If the Miami Marlins are going to get some hits tonight, it will start with the top. Take Chisholm’s over tonight with confidence.
Patrick Sandoval has struggled on the year, only lasting until the sixth inning in one game. During his last outing against the Oakland Athletics, he only allowed two hits but only struck out two batters in the process.
In fact, in four appearances this year, Sandoval has only struck out 6 batters in one game, which came against the Boston Red Sox.
While the Athletics are one of the worst teams in baseball, they don’t have a propensity to strike out, especially against Sandoval. Look for a low strikeout night from him, resulting in him hitting the under.
