Nationals at Yankees 6/12/18 - MLB Picks & Predictions

A potential World Series preview will take place on Tuesday night, when the Washington Nationals visit the New York Yankees. On Sunday, Max Scherzer was defeated for the first time in more that two months during a 2-0 loss versus San Francisco. Washington is nine games above .500 overall and in a virtual tie with Atlanta for the NL East Division lead.

Washington will turn to thirty-one year old righty Tanner Roark (3-6 3.56 ERA) in the series opener. Last time out, Roark allowed six hits and two runs across six innings of an 11-2 rout against Tampa Bay. The New York Yankees have won 42 of their first 61 games and own the best record in the majors. On Sunday, the Yankees saw their four-game winning streak snapped during a 2-0 loss versus the Mets. SP Luis Severino struck out seven batters over five innings for New York, who leads Boston by a half-game for first place in the AL East Division.

Thirty-seven year old southpaw C.C. Sabathia (3-1 3.59 ERA) continues to be a force for the Yankees. Sabathia has won consecutive starts and has allowed five runs over his last 12 innings of work.

New York SP Masahiro Tanaka was placed on the 10-day disabled list with tightness in both of his hamstrings. Through 63 games, Washington ranks 22nd in batting average and 18th in runs scored. For the season, New York ranks 10th in batting average and 2nd in runs scored. Take the under in the series opener. Final Score Prediction, New York Yankees win 4-3.
