Los Angeles Dodgers vs Washington Nationals Match Preview and Betting Tips
If the Los Angeles Dodgers are going to turn around their disappointing season, finishing off a three-game road sweep of the Washington Nationals on Sunday would be a good place to start. The Dodgers took both games of a doubleheader from the Nationals on Saturday and have won three straight following a string of six straight defeats.
Los Angeles had lost nine of 10 entering the series, but Ross Stripling shut down the Nationals for a 4-1 win in Saturday’s opener and the Dodgers rallied in the ninth on Matt Kemp’s two-run double for a 5-4 victory in the nightcap. Seven relievers had to combine on a four-hitter for the Dodgers in the second game after starter Rich Hill left with blisters on his throwing hand after just two pitches.
Fellow left-hander Alex Wood will need to give the Dodgers a deep start Sunday to preserve the bullpen. The Nationals had won four straight and 13 of 15 before rain killed their momentum - they had not completed a game since Sunday prior to Saturday’s twinbill.
