The Washington Nationals and the Atlanta Braves play Game 2 of their current two-game set on Wednesday at the SunTrust Park in Atlanta, Georgia.

Kyle McGowin has started two games for the Nationals this season and he has an ERA of 9.0, a WHIP of .157 while opponents are batting at a .310 against the 27-year old former Savannah State Product. Washington is 1-1 in the games where McGowin has started.

In a total of seven innings pitched, McGowin has a total of five strikeouts and two walks while allowing seven earned runs on nine hits with two home runs allowed. In his last outing, McGowin lasted just 4.0 innings and gave up a total of five earned runs on six hits with two home runs allowed. The Nationals beat the Marlins 12-10 but he didn’t factor in the decision

Third baseman Anthony Rendon leads Washington with his .322 batting average. The third baseman also has 10 home runs to lead the Nationals. Meanwhile, Juan Soto leads Washington with a total of 35 RBIs on the season. As a team, the Nationals are hitting the ball at a .247 clip while also scoring 247 runs.

Kevin Gausman will open on top of the hill for the Braves on Wednesday. The 28-year-old former LSU product has started in a total of 10 games this season and has a record of 2-3 with an ERA of 4.33, a WHIP of 1.22 and a BAA of .228. Atlanta is 5-1 in Gausman’s last six starts

The left-hander has pitched in a total of 54.0 innings this season and has allowed a total of 29 runs ( 26 earned ) on a total of 45 hits with 5 home runs. Gausman has 56 strikeouts and 21 walks on the season. In his last outing, Gausman gave up three earned runs on six hits in 6.0 innings of work while earning the victory as the Braves won over the Giants last May 23rd.

Freddie Freeman’s .317 batting average leads the Braves as does his 13 home runs drilled. Dansby Swanson has 35 RBIs to pace Atlanta this season. As a team, the Braves are batting at a .259 clip and have scored a total of 264 runs on the current season.

Baseball Who Wins?

The Nationals are 4-6 SU in their last 10 games played. Washington is 0-4 SU in their last four games played on the road. The Braves are 7-3 SU in their last 10 games played. Atlanta is 2-1 SU in their last three games played at home. Head to head, the Nationals are 5-3 SU in their last eight games against the Braves and Washington is 6-4 ATS in their last nine road games in Atlanta.

Washington is 13-19 SU in 32 games as Betting favorites this season and 9-13 SU in 22 games as betting underdogs. On the other hand, Atlanta is 23-14 SU as betting favorites in 37 games this season and the Braves are 7-10 SU as betting underdogs this year. Washington is 5-8 SU in 13 games against left-handed starters while Atlanta is 22-19 in 41 games against right-handers.

The Nationals are 0-5 SU in their last five road games, 3-8 SU in their last 11 games against an opponent with a winning record. Atlanta is 5-0 SU in their last five divisional games and 5-1 in Gausman’s last six starts.

Washington won Game 1 of this series but I don’t think the Nationals are going to win the next one and sweep the Braves in this short two-game set. McGowin was torched for five runs in four innings against Miami in his most recent start. And while Gausman has a 2-3 record, the Braves are 5-1 in his last six starts. Washington has also struggled on the road all season long and I think they revert back to that in this game. I’m picking the Atlanta Braves to beat the Washington Nationals on 5/29/19.
