With the 2015 Major League Baseball season coming closer to the July 2015 All-Star Break, we take look and some of the favorite teams playing an interleague game, as we see the American League East- Yankees of New York (22-17) playing at the National League East- Nationals of Washington, D.C. (22-17) with the game to be played on Tuesday the 19th of May 2015 at the Nationals Park in Washington District of Columbia with game time at 8:15 PM ET and seen on MLB TV.
Yes the Yankees make one of a few appearances this Tuesday at the Nationals Park in D.C. as Washington host a two game inter-league series for these two teams. The Yankees have been sputtering as they have only won 1 of their last 6 games, and we wonder if this is the series they need to rid themselves of losses. On the other hand the Nationals are coming off a streak of winning 3 straight games. So what will this interleague game do for the Yankees and Nationals?
If you Bet on MLB at an Offshore sportsbook, and are a Yankees fan your team will be sending to the mound N. Eovaldi who had 2 straight wins in his last 2 starts on the season has 3 wins and 1 loss with an ERA of 4.14. However, his one loss came on the 12th of May as he and the Yankees lost to the Rays 4-2, a game in which he allowed all 4 of the runs and at the same time allowed the Yankees to get six hit before he was taken out in the top of the 7th. He also had given up 4 Home Runs in his last 4 Games, and now has to face the strong hitters of the Nationals. If the Yankees hope to win this first game or this series, they need their offense to step and score some runs against Washington. Lately, the runs have been hard to come by for New York as they have only averaged 1.82 runs per game in their last 6 games, and just this past Sunday they lost to the Royals of Kansas City 6-0. The Yankees Bronx Bombers will be looking for M. Teixeira to be back from the injury list, and to see A-Rod batting performance to improve.
For the fans of the Nationals of D.C. your team has been enjoying a great offense this season that managed to score 24 runs in their last 3 outings, and that included their win over the Padres this past Sunday 10-0. Your team will be sending to the mound G. Gonzalez who has 3 wins and 2 losses this season with an ERA of 4.25, and they Nationals will need to continue their offensive power against the Yankees this coming Tuesday, as his career against the Bronx Bombers of New York is 1 win and 5 losses with an ERA of 4.52 when starting against the Yankees.
However, if the Nationals Escobar, Span and Harper keep hitting as they have of late, then Gonzalez will have the run support as he has struggles before against the Yankees. The 22 year old Harper has been great at the plate as of late with a .386 batting average with 18 RBI’s and 8 home runs, while Escobar and Span in the last 7 games hitting .376 and .464 respectively. In their last 4 home games the Nationals have been perfect at 4-0. Thus the experts predict the Nationals of D.C. beat the Bronx Bombers of New York in this 1st Game 7-4!
