The pitching matchups for Wednesday will have Nationals left hander Gio Gonzalez going head to head with right hander Armando Galarraga for the Astros. Nationals All Star Gio Gonzalez has had a solid season with an ERA of just 3.34 and WHIP of 1.13. His numbers have been good on the road with an ERA just over three. Gonzalez gets upgraded by throwing against an anemic Houston Astros offense. The Astros are batting just .192 over their past seven games and are scoring just 2.3 runs per game in that span of games. Gonzalez faced the Astros last season and allowed no earned runs over seven innings and giving up just two hits in the win. Galarraga had one home start this year and allowed two earned runs pitching five innings against Pittsburgh on July 28th. Galarraga will have an edge tonight spending most of his career in the American League as the Washington hitters will face the Astros right hander for the first time. The pitching has the edge in this game so play under and before you do read a sports book review.
