The starting pitching tonight from both sides favors a lower scoring game. On the mound tonight for Washington will be Edwin Jackson and he will face lefty Wade Miley for Arizona. Jackson has performed well as the Nationals right hander has allowed just five earned runs total over his past three starts working a total of 18 innings. Wade Miley for Arizona has been sharp as well as the Diamondback hurler has allowed one run total in his past two starts at the Pittsburgh Pirates and LA Dodgers. At home Miley has been good posting an ERA of just 2.56 and WHIP of 1.10 in his nine starts. He faced Washington last season and threw six shutout innings in victory. Both bullpens have performed well for each club this year. Two starters in good form will lead us to an under play tonight but first check out a sports book review.
