Milwaukee Brewers vs Washington Nationals Today's Odds
Milwaukee Brewers vs Washington Nationals Match Preview
Anthony Rendon had the big hit again in the series opener and hopes to continue his torrid six-week stretch when the Washington Nationals host the Milwaukee Brewers for the second of a three-game series Saturday. Rendon’s second RBI double of the game in the eighth inning gave Washington a 2-1 victory in the series opener Friday as the Nationals extended their winning streak to a season high-matching five.
Rendon has 34 RBIs in his last 34 contests with a .354 batting average during that span while teammate Trea Turner had a walk and scored both runs Friday to move within a game of matching his career-best on-base streak of 24 that he strung together last year. Washington, which holds down the top wild-card spot in the National League, will send red-hot veteran Anibal Sanchez to the mound on Saturday and the Brewers hand the ball to fellow right-hander Jordan Lyles. Milwaukee sits one game behind in the race for the NL’s second wild card after losing for the third time in its last nine contests Friday, going 2-for-10 with runners in scoring position and leaving 13 on base. Ryan Braun had two of the Brewers’ nine hits in the series opener and has hit safely in 12 straight starts while teammate Christian Yelich - the reigning NL MVP - is mired in a 1-for-16 slump as he remains one homer shy of becoming the seventh player in club history to belt 40 in a season.
The fans at Nationals Park will be treated to a game between the Milwaukee Brewers and the Washington Nationals when they take their seats on Saturday.
The Brewers will give the ball to starter Jordan Lyles in this one. Right hander Lyles is 7-8 this season with a 4.62 ERA.
