Tampa Bay Rays vs Washington Nationals. MLB’s pick for the game will go to the Tampa Bay Rays. The Nationals surprised the Rays in the 1st game, but it’s unlikely the team will be consistent going forward. It’s hard to trust Washington to create a streak with their terrible season. Tampa Bay is playing solid baseball this year and is due to bounce back after the loss. Yarbrough is yet to have a win as a starter but he is doing a lot better than Sanchez. Washington is 5-15 in their last 20 games in Nationals Park. Tampa wins at 6-5.
