The Mets are in a downright tailspin after losing again on Tuesday. They got a rare rough start from RA Dickey who lost for just the second time this season. On Wednesday the Mets will look to stop the bleeding when they said Jeremy Hefner to the mound who has mostly pitched in relief this season. He’s pitching to a 5.85 ERA in 32 innings of work.
The Nationals just keep winning and do not show any signs of slowing down. They were led on the mound Tuesday by Gio Gonzalez who notched his 13th win of the season. Today they will start Stephen Strasburg who has pitched wonderful as well this season. He has struck out 140 batters in 110 innings of work.
New York is 1-11 in their last 12 games overall, 0-5 in their last five games as a home underdog, and 0-6 in their last six home games. Washington is 6-1 in their last seven road games against a right handed starter, 5-2 in their last seven game three of a series, and 1-4 in Strasburg’s last five starts. Washington is 12-3 in the last 15 meetings of these two.
This is one of those games you do not want to over think. Take the Nationals as a moneyline favorite on the road with Strasburg on the hill at the sportsbook.
