The Washington Nationals and the Milwaukee Brewers meet for an important game once again today. All MLB odds can be found at Oddsmaker sportsbook.
The Washington Nationals are looking to clinch the division title, but did not do much to help their chances last night. They only scored two runs on six hits in the loss and will look to rebound tonight. Tonight they will send Gio Gonzalez to the hill who is trying to solidify his standing as a Cy Young favorite. For the season Gonzalez has allowed 140 hits and 61 earned runs while striking out 196 over 186.1 innings of work for a 2.95 ERA.
The Brewers are the talk of baseball right now as they have clawed back and are now just 1.5 games in back for the Wild Card. They were led by the bats of Ryan Braun and Aramis Ramirez yesterday as they scored 4 runs on 10 hits which was just enough for the win. Today they will try and inch even closer behind the right arm of Wily Peralta. Peralta has allowed 17 hits and five earned runs while striking out 13 over 21 innings of work for a 2.14 ERA.
Washington is 16-7 in their last 23 home games, 5-2 in their last seven game two of a series, and 5-2 in Gonzalez’s last seven home starts. Milwaukee is 6-1 in their last seven games as an underdog, 24-6 in their last 30 games overall, and 6-1 in their last seven games against the NL East. Milwaukee is 2-5 in their last seven games in Washington.
This is a very interesting matchup, but we like the Nats to pull out a close one, so we will take them on the moneyline so first read a sports book review.
