Washington Nationals vs San Francisco Giants 5/8/2023 Picks Predictions Previews


The Washington Nationals are looking to climb out of the basement of the NL East Division as they take on the San Francisco Giants in a west coast matchup on Monday night.


Although they currently sit in last place, the Nats have been showing some improvement lately, winning five out of their last eight games.


In their most recent game, they rallied in the ninth inning, thanks in part to Joey Meneses’ three-run homer, to avoid a sweep by the Arizona Diamondbacks.


Nationals manager Dave Martinez praised his team for their resilience, saying, “These guys got a bunch of heart and they’re playing together and they feel like they never out of it.”


Washington will turn to Jake Irvin, a 26-year-old right-hander, who will be making his second start of the season. In his debut against the Cubs on May 3rd, Irvin pitched 4.1 innings, allowing two hits, four walks, and three strikeouts.


He relies heavily on his fastball and curveball, throwing them over 60% of the time. On the other side, the Giants will start Anthony DeScalfani, who has a 3-1 record and a 2.13 ERA this year. The first pitch is set for 9:45 PM EST.


  • The Washington Nationals are 2-7 SU in their last 9 encounters with the Giamts.
  • The total went OVER in 4 of Washington’s last 5 games on the road against San Francisco.
  • The total hung OVER in 5 of Washington’s last 6 games with a team in the NL West Division.
