New York Yankees vs. Washington Nationals Preview

1. The Yankees have lost 5 of their last 6 games.

In their last games the Nationals beat the San Diego Padres 10-5 and the Yankees lost to the Kansas City Royals 6-0.

The Nationals got off to a slow start to the season, but they have won 16 of their last 20 games and are now only 1 game back of the New York Mets in the NL East. They are a home betting favorite tonight facing a slumping Yankees’ team.

The Yankees have won 6 of their last 8 games facing the Nationals in Washington D.C.

[dfads params=’groups=10&limit=1&return_javascript=0′]

Before their last series the Yankees were swept by the Tampa Bay Rays and now New York only has a 1 game lead on them in the AL East race.

Bryce Harper is on fire as of late hitting .564 with 9 HR and 22 RBI in his last 11 games. He leads the NL in HR and RBI and ranks 5th in batting average. He leads the potent Nationals offense, which has scored 24 runs in their 3-game winning streak.

The Yankees’ offense ranks 10th in the Majors in runs scored, but in their last 6 games they have only totaled 11 runs and have hit .215 as a team.

Nathan Eovaldi goes for the Yankees tonight and he gave up 4 earned runs in 7 innings in a 4-2 loss to the Rays in his last start. In his career he is 2-4 with a 4.76 ERA in 7 starts against Washington. The Yankees had won 4 straight games with him on the hill before his last loss.

Gio Gonzalez gets the starting nod for the Nationals and while he gave up 5 earned runs in 5 innings of work in his last outing the offense bailed him out in a 9-5 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Gonzalez has lost 5 straight starts facing the Yankees and in that span he has an ERA of 8.17. However, only one of the losses came when he has been with the Nationals. While he is only 1-3 with an ERA of 9.08 in his last 8 starts against teams from the AL he is 3-0 with an ERA of only 1.42 in his last 6 home starts.

[dfads params=’groups=63745&limit=1&return_javascript=0′]

The Nationals are 16-5 in Gonzalez’s last 21 home starts.
