The New York Mets and the Washington Nationals will meet on the field at Nationals Park on Saturday in a battle of division rivals.

The Mets will trot Robert Gsellman out to the mound in this one. Right hander Gsellman has a 5-5 record and a 6.06 ERA this season.

The Nationals will counter Gsellman with Gio Gonzalez. Left hander Gonzalez has a 2.39 ERA to go along with a 12-5 record this season.

Gsellman is winless in his last five turns but pitched well enough to win on Monday, when he held the Arizona Diamondbacks to one run on five hits in 6 1/3 innings in a no-decision. The 24-year-old is making his third start since rejoining the team on Aug. 16 and surrendered a total of three earned runs and nine hits in 11 2/3 innings since his return. Gsellman was not as sharp against Washington on June 15, when he was lit up for seven runs and 11 hits in five innings.

Gonzalez dominated in his last four starts, allowing a total of two runs over 27 2/3 innings to cruise to wins in each outing. The Florida native struck out eight and issued only one walk in 6 2/3 innings at San Diego on Sunday and did not yield a home run in any of the last four outings. Gonzalez is making his third start of the season against New York and earned the win in the first two while surrendering a total of three runs and seven hits in 13 1/3 innings.

Oddsmakers currently have the Nationals listed as 210-moneyline favorites versus the Mets, while the game’s total is sitting at 8.

The New York Mets and the Washington Nationals can spend the rest of the weekend comparing their respective injury lists, both of which continue to grow. The Nationals hope to have Ryan Zimmerman back in the lineup sometime this weekend and will try to even the series at one win apiece when they host the Mets on Saturday.

Zimmerman hurt his shoulder sliding into home plate in Thursday’s win over the Houston Astros and sat out Friday as Washington fell to New York 4-2. “I think he hurt his arm or shoulder,” Nationals manager Dusty Baker told reporters. “Really couldn’t swing. I don’t anticipate he’ll be much better (Saturday), but hopefully on Sunday.” The Mets lost their own middle-of-the-order slugger on Friday when Yoenis Cespedes went down with a right hamstring strain, one game after Michael Conforto went down with a shoulder injury. New York will send right-hander Robert Gsellman to the mound on Saturday while Washington counters with surging lefty Gio Gonzalez.

Last time out for Washington, they were a 4-2 loser as they battled the Mets on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Mets at -133 were rewarded, while the 6 combined runs moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.

In their last action, New York was a 4-2 winner on the road against the Nationals. Bettors on New York at -133 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (6) sent UNDER bettors home happy as well.
