Offense Hard To Come By Between Dodgers, Nationals

The Los Angeles Dodgers will look to complete the three-game sweep of the Washington Nationals when the two teams clash Sunday night. The most recent outings between the Dodgers and Nats have been highlighted by pitching with the UNDER hitting in each of the past five. In those five contests, the Dodgers and Nationals have averaged a combined 4.8 runs per game.

Shark Bites
  • Stephen Strasburg has allowed 0 runs with 33 strikeouts in his past 4 starts.
  • The Dodgers are 3-18 ATS in their past 21 games.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 5 of the Nationals past 6 games.

This trend may continue if Nationals’ pitcher Stephen Strasburg continues pitching at his torrid pace. The righty enters this start riding a streak of 34 consecutive innings without surrendering a run, having not allowed a run in each of his past four outings. Strasburg surrendered just one earned run in 6.0 innings in his lone start against the Dodgers this season.

Hyun-Jin Ryu will start for the Dodgers after missing his last start with the team juggling six starters. Rest has served Ryu well so far this season with the southpaw posting a 3.19 ERA in his six starts coming off six-plus days rest.
