Mariners vs Nationals predictions

As the Seattle Mariners take the field, I'm expecting big things from their lineup. Dominic Canzone is due for a breakout game, and I think he'll come through with a multi-hit performance, including a double and an RBI. J.P. Crawford has been on a tear lately, and I predict he'll continue his hot streak with a pair of singles and a run scored. Meanwhile, Cal Raleigh will keep his power surge going with a home run and two RBIs. If Ty France can get on base a few times, I think the Mariners' offense will be in good shape.

On the other side, the Washington Nationals will be relying on their own set of stars to get the job done. Luis Garcia Jr. is having a fantastic season, and I think he'll keep it going with a pair of hits and a run scored. Eddie Rosario has been hitting well lately, and I predict he'll come through with a double and an RBI. If Joey Meneses can get on base a few times, the Nationals' offense should be able to muster up some runs. With Trevor Williams on the mound, I think the Nationals will be able to keep the Mariners' bats in check.

In the end, I think the Nationals' solid pitching and timely hitting will be enough to edge out the Mariners. Williams has been impressive on the mound this season, and I think he'll be able to limit the Mariners' offense. Meanwhile, the Nationals' bats will do just enough to take the win. My prediction is a close one - Nationals 4, Mariners 3.
