Washington Nationals vs San Francisco Giants 5/9/2023 Picks Predictions Previews


The Washington Nationals have had a tough start to the season, currently sitting at the bottom of the NL East with a 14-20 record. However, they have not been as bad as one might expect from a young team.


Left-hander Patrick Corbin will take the mound, coming off a solid performance against the Chicago Cubs, where he threw for seven innings, allowing two runs on three hits with six strikeouts and zero walks.


The San Francisco Giants haven’t had the best start to the season either, sitting in fourth place in the NL West with a 15-18 record.


Right-hander Logan Webb will be starting for the Giants, fresh off a win over the Houston Astros. He gave up two runs on five hits with five strikeouts and two walks in 7.2 innings of work.


The Nationals have had a tough time at the plate this season, ranking 28th in the majors with a .673 team OPS and averaging just 3.88 runs per game.


One of their biggest struggles has been their inability to draw walks, with only 91 walks as a team, tied for second-worst in the league with the Philadelphia Phillies.


Center fielder Victor Robles has been a bright spot for the Nationals, leading the team at the plate with a .292/.388/.360 slash line, eight RBI, 13 runs scored, and eight stolen bases on nine attempts.


Corbin has struggled this season according to his Baseball Savant page, ranking in the fifth percentile in xBA, 13th percentile in strikeout percentage, 15th percentile in xSLG, and 16th percentile in xERA.


He throws a four-pitch arsenal consisting of a sinker, slider, fastball, and changeup, with his slider being his best pitch. 


  • The Washington Nationals are 5-2 SU in their last 7 games.
  • Washington is 3-7 SU in their last 10 matches with San Francisco.
  • The total stayed UNDER in 8 of Washington’s last 12 games on the road.

Washington Nationals vs San Francisco Giants Predictions 5/9/2023


The San Francisco Giants have been hitting well this season, as they have a .748 team OPS and score 4.48 runs per game, which are both in the top half of the league.


They also have a lot of power, as they have hit 54 home runs as a team, which is fourth in the majors (third in NL).


Their 1B LaMonte Wade has been outstanding, with a .953 OPS, six homers, 10 RBI, 14 runs scored, and a stolen base without being caught.


Logan Webb has been pitching well this season, according to his Baseball Savant page. He has a low walk rate, a high chase rate, a good strikeout rate, and an expected ERA that is better than average.


He throws four pitches (sinker, changeup, slider, fastball) and his slider is his best pitch, as it has a low batting average and slugging percentage against.


He also did well against the Nationals last year, going 2-0 in 12.2 innings and allowing six runs on 18 hits with two walks and nine strikeouts.


  • San Francisco are 4-2 SU in their last 6 games.
  • The total has gone OVER in 4 of San Francisco’s last 5 games against Washington.
  • San Francisco are 7-3 SU in their last 10 games at home.

Washington Nationals vs San Francisco Giants. The MLB pick for this game is the San Francisco Giants.


Both the Washington Nationals and the San Francisco Giants have been losing a lot since the season began and can’t seem to turn things around.


The Nationals’ and Giants’ hitters have been mediocre this season but they are not the main problem, it’s the pitching.


Logan Webb and Patrick Corbin will likely allow many hits and runs. Bet on the over. My prediction: San Francisco Giants 7, Washington Nationals 6.
