The Texas Rangers and the Washington Nationals will both be trying to pick up a win on Friday when they battle at Nationals Park in an interleague contest.

The Rangers will give the ball to starter Andrew Cashner in this one. Right hander Cashner is 2-5 this season with a 3.39 ERA.

It’ll be Tanner Roark toeing the rubber for the Nationals in this contest. Right hander Roark is 6-2 with a 3.94 ERA so far this season.

There was no carry over from Cashner’s streak-busting win on the road as he was battered for five runs and a season-worst 11 hits over six innings by Houston in his last turn. His win at Toronto on May 28 marked the fifth quality start in a span of six outings before the pounding by the Astros. Cashner is 2-4 with a 4.50 ERA in 12 career appearances (seven starts) versus Washington.

Roark bounced back from a four-start winless drought by winning his last three outings, pitching at least seven innings in each while allowing a combined five earned runs. The 30-year-old has curbed the issues with his control during the winning streak, allowing only two walks in 21 2/3 innings. Catcher Jonathan Lucroy has enjoyed success against Roark, going 5-for-13.

Oddsmakers currently have the Nationals listed as 188-moneyline favorites versus the Rangers, while the game’s total is sitting at 9.

Tanner Roark is bidding to become the third seven-game winner for the Washington Nationals when they host the Texas Rangers on Friday night in the opener of a three-game interleague series. The Nationals kicked off a seven-game homestand with a 6-1 win over Baltimore in a makeup game Thursday to improve to 8-2 in their last 10.

Roark will have a tough act to follow after Washington received another pitching gem from Joe Ross on Thursday, giving the starting rotation a 0.45 ERA with 34 strikeouts versus three walks over 20 1/3 innings in the past three games. Leadoff batter Trea Turner has hit safely in five straight games and eight of nine, going 16-for-41 with nine runs scored in that span. Rangers right-hander Andrew Casher got an elephant off his back in his last start of May, ending an 18-start road winless streak dating to September 2015. Texas has dropped 11 of 14 and is in the midst of a brutal schedule to start the month of June with nine of the first 11 games against Houston and the Nationals, the teams with the two best records in baseball.

In their last action, Washington was a 6-1 winner on the road against the Orioles. Bettors on Washington at -153 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (7) sent UNDER bettors home happy as well.

Last time out for Texas, they were a 4-3 loser as they battled the Mets on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Mets at 130 were rewarded, while the 7 combined runs moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.
