Cincinnati Reds vs Washington Nationals Match Preview and Free Picks
Mother Nature put a halt to the Washington Nationals' hot stretch, but they hope to pick up right where they left off when they host the Cincinnati Reds in a split doubleheader Saturday. The Nationals took the opener of the four-game series by a 10-4 margin before rain forced Friday night's affair to be called off.
Washington is enjoying its second three-game winning streak in a little over a week as it tries to keep pace with Philadelphia and Atlanta in the National League East. It will try to stay on course behind Gio Gonzalez in the opener and Jeremy Hellickson in the nightcap, as they take on a Cincinnati club that has dropped three in a row.
Anthony DeSclafani goes in the matinee for the Reds, followed by Matt Harvey, who will be facing the Nationals for the first time since being traded from the rival Mets earlier in the year. Washington slugger Bryce Harper is 7-for-13 with a home run, three doubles and five RBIs over a four-game stretch and is a career .310 hitter against the Reds.
