White Sox vs Nationals: Prediction and Stats for High Scoring Match Despite Struggling Teams and Unsuccessful Starters

The Chicago White Sox will face the Washington Nationals in Nationals Park on Tuesday in the middle of a three-game interleague series. The White Sox are coming off a 4-0 loss to the Minnesota Twins and have been eliminated from postseason contention, while the Nationals defeated the Milwaukee Brewers 2-1 on Sunday, snapping a five-game losing streak. However, with 12 games left in the regular season schedule Washington could be eliminated if they don't win this series. Washington is the betting favourite for the game, with Jose Urena and Jackson Rutledge set to start for the White Sox and Nationals respectively.

High Scoring Match Expected Despite Struggling Teams and Unsuccessful Starters

Chicago and Washington both have nothing on the line this game, which likely indicates a high scoring match. Both teams have shown recent struggle, with Chicago losing five of its last six, and Washington losing nine of the eleven against the White Sox. Jose Urena, Chicago's starting pitcher has had an unsuccessful season with no wins and six losses. Jackson Rutledge, Washington's starter, was not very successful in his debut, giving up seven runs in 3 ⅔ innings against Pittsburgh. All this points to a game mouse difficult to predict with not much hope for the starters' performances.
