Nationals at angels
Tonight, the Washington Nationals will take on the LA Angels in the first game of the three-game series. The Nationals have been just about as bad as I would have expected them to be this season. They are sitting with a 3-7 record, and I have already eliminated them from playoff contention. On the other hand, the Angels have been playing decent baseball so far this year. They are currently 5-4 much due to the fact that their offense has been putting up a ton of runs so far this season.
As you can see above whether they are winning or they are losing, the Angles find a way to put runs up on the board.
The pitchers in tonight’s game will be Patrick Corbin for the Nats and Jose Suarez for the Angles. Both of these pitchers have been terrible in the games that they have played so far this season. Suarez has one start where he gave up 8 hits, 7 runs, and 2 HR in four innings to the Mariners. He has an ERA of 12.46 through just one game, but he was fooking awful in game 1. Corbin has not been much better for the Nationals. He has two starts this season and in both of the games the Nationals lost 7-2. Corbin gave up four runs in three innings and then 6 runs through six innings. He has been abysmal since 2020 and I don’t see that changing here.
As I established above both of these pitchers are horse shit. Neither has a win through the first couple weeks of the season and if it was possible, I would bet against both of them tonight. However, we can’t fade both teams in one matchup. So this is what we’re going to play for tonight:
Hammer: Nats/LAA o10
Hammer: LAA -1.5
Sprinkle: Corbin u15.5 outs
