Dodgers Look to Keep Their Offense Going in Washington
The Dodgers will head to the nation’s capital for a three-game set with the Washington Nationals. There is rain in the forecast for Friday and Saturday so the Dodgers could see a game or two postponed.
The Dodgers will face the Washington Nationals for the second time this season as they open up a series in Washington D.C. on Friday. The Dodgers will head into the series hoping to keep their offense going. On Thursday, The Dodgers broke out for seven runs that came mainly from the bats of Justin Turner and Matt Kemp. Turner had a career-high five RBI’s Thursday and between Kemp and Turner, they combined for six hits, four doubles, and six runs batted in.
The Nationals are coming into the series more banged up than the Dodgers if that is possible. The Nats will be without All-Star second baseman Daniel Murphy, catcher Matt Wieters, and outfielder Adam Eaton. Anthony Rendon did return recently and has four home runs for the Nationals already in limited time. The Nationals will throw Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg in this series so that is one thing they have working for them.
