The MLB is back in action today as the Milwaukee Brewers will clash with the Washington Nationals in one-game wildcard playoff. The winner will go to the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NLDS. This contest will be played at Nationals Park in Washington. The Brewers will be heading into this game with Brandon Woodruff (and he will be opposed by Max Scherzer.
Milwaukee Brewers Form
The Brewers are were relegated to the wildcard round. Moreover, their current form is not good enough at the moment as scored just 5 total runs in their last two games against Colorado. Also, the Brewers are without Christian Yelich while both Lorenzo Cain and Ryan Braun are doubts for this game against the Nats. If both are out, then it could be a long night for the Brewers. Milwaukee away record stands at 40-41 and they have averaged 4.70 runs per game and have allowed 4.89 runs per game in those games.
On the offensive side of the game, they are 17th in the league in scoring, putting up 4.75 runs per game. Also, they are 20th in hitting at .246 and 7th in homers with 2506. On the mound, they are 16th in the league in ERA at 4.40 while also being 16th in WHIP at 1.33 and 10th in K’s with 1497.
Washington Nationals Form
The Nationals are actually playing very well at the moment. Moreover, they have now won their last 8 games and the winning momentum is on their side. Additionally, the Nats outscored their opponents by 54-24 in those 8 games. Their scoring average in the last 10 games is at 6.70 runs per game.
Therefore, it is safe to say that the offence is the strongest weapon of Washington this season. Their home record stands at 50-31 here at home for the season.
On the offensive side of the game, the Nationals are 6th in the league in scoring at 5.39 runs per game. They are also 6th in hitting at .265 and 13th in homers with 231. On the mound, they are 13th in the league in ERA at 4.27. Also, they are being 8th in WHIP at 1.29 and 8th in K’s with 1511.
The Brewers are not playing well and it seems that they are not in a good position heading into this game.
On the other side, the Nationals are a team that managed to surprise many this season. Also, they are in good form heading into this game. The winning momentum is one their side and therefore I expect a win for the Nationals today.
