The Washington Nationals have won seven of their last nine games and they’ve  scored 31 runs in their past three games alone. I like them to complete the sweep of this three-game set against the Chicago White Sox Thursday night as they come up against the struggling Miguel Gonzalez.

Gonzalez (0-1, 3.93) was bumped from the rotation following the acquisition of James Shields, but he’ll make a spot start as Carlos Rodon is dealing with neck discomfort. He could ask for an easier opponent than the red hot Nats, and his 1 1/3 inning relief appearance on June 5 can’t be good for the rhythm.

The Nats turn to left-hander Gio Gonzalez (3-4, 3.94 ERA) who has been hit hard in recent starts, but interleague play usually brings out the best of the left-hander. He’s won his first two interleague starts of the season against Kansas City and Minnesota behind a 1.50 ERA, and we can note that the White Sox are 1-6 in their last seven games vs. a left-handed starter.

We have a favorable umpire situation for this game as well as the Nats are 5-1 in their last six games with Eric Cooper behind home plate while the White Sox are 1-5 in their last six.
