The Nationals have put a little breathing room between themselves and the rest of the NL East with a victory over the Mets on Wednesday. The Nats scored 5 runs on 9 hits on the night and the Edwin Jackson notched his second win of the season on the mound. Chien Ming-Wang will be on the hill today to try and secure a series sweep for the Nats. The righty is making just his second start of the season after losing his first.
The Mets have slipped to fourth place in the tightly packed NL East when they dropped their second straight game to the Nats on Wednesday. They only had 3 hits on Wednesday mustering just 3 runs in the process. The Mets’ best pitcher this season, RA Dickey gets the start for them this afternoon. Dickey is 8-1 with a 2.69 ERA and has only allowed 61 hits in 73 innings pitched.
Washington is 20-9 in their last 29 home games, 23-9 in their last 32 games against the N.L. East, and 4-1 in Wang’s last five home starts. New York is 9-3 in their last 12 games against a right handed starter, 1-5 in their last six games against the N.L. East, and 1-4 in Dickey’s last five starts as a road favorite. New York is 1-8 in their last nine games in Washington.
On a getaway day and with Dickey pitching we like the under in this one in a big way with sportsbook betting.
