Washington Nationals vs. Atlanta Braves Prediction

The Nationals will be pitching Josiah Gray for tonight’s game. The young right-hander has been improving as of late and now has a 4.91 xFIP in the last 30 days. In those 30 days, he's struck out 27.5% of batters. That will come in handy against the Braves tonight. Anyway, in that same time frame, Gray has walked 10.1% of batters and has allowed 24.6% of line drives while inducing just 27.7% of grounders. So not everything is going his way. Meanwhile, the Braves have also improved offensively against righties. In the last 30 days, the projected lineup has a .182 ISO and wOBA of .325 in the last 30 days. However, the Braves have struck out 27.1% of the time against righties in the last 30 days, and Gray, as we talked about, is a heavy strikeout thrower. That can keep the Braves in check in this one. On the other hand, Ian Anderson will get the call for the Braves. Anderson has had a 4.58 xFIP in the last 30 days with 7.9% of walks. However, he has struck out 22.2% of batters in the last 30 days while limiting line drives to 20.5%.  Despite all of that success, Anderson has struggled against righties, giving up a .393 wOBA and ISO of .244 but has destroyed lefties, despite being a right-handed pitcher. He has a 4.53 ERA on the year and hasn't exactly been all that good this season. However, the Nationals don’t have very many consistent righties in the lineup that hit righties well. Only Lance Thomas has inflated numbers against righties as a right-hander, with a .327 ISO and wOBA of .415 in the last 30 days. Washington will likely only have three righties in the lineup against Anderson, which benefits Anderson greatly. As a team, against righties, the Nationals have a .155 ISO and wOBA of .308 in the last 30 days with their projected lineup. Only Nelson Cruz and Thomas have a wOBA number greater than .320 in the lineup in those 30 days. With that said, both lineups have two players with inflated numbers against the opposition. I'm confident taking the under in this game knowing that it's the first game of the series after the weekend.
