Seattle Mariners (37-35) @ Washington Nationals (35-37)
Tonight sees the Mariners come to town as the Nationals bid to kick start another hot streak and build towards the .500 mark as Livan Hernandez takes to the mound for the first time since his superb shutout against the Cardinals last week. Ian Desmond returns after missing out in Sunday’s 7-4 defeat to Baltimore and the Nats will be hoping that tips the scales in what is sure to be a close encounter. Predictions are tricky on this one but with a good home crowd and a strong focus on getting back up to third in the National League East (knowing the Mets will have to be at their best to see off an in form Oakland), the Nationals should have enough providing that Wilson Ramos has a stronger than average at-bat.
Prediction - Nationals Win
