The Nationals continue to lead the NL East and they have not been playing their best baseball recently. They are 20-14 at home this season and have a three-game lead in the division. They will send Jordan Zimmermann to the mound tonight who is coming off a loss in his last start. He has allowed 92 hits and 97 innings of work good enough for a 2.77 ERA.
The Giants are now on top of the NL West and will be looking to increase the distance between them and the pack. They have been lead all season by strong combination of hitting and pitching led by Melky Cabrera was hitting .352 on offense and they will send Tim Lincecum to the mound tonight. Lincecum is coming off a win and is trying to get his season back on track as the right-hander has a 5.60 ERA in 90 innings of work.
Washington is 20-8 in their last 28 games as a home favorite, 1-4 in their last five games following a win, and 1-4 in Zimmerman’s last five home starts. San Francisco is 5-2 in their last seven games overall, 2-5 in their last seven games against the N.L. East, and 2-9 in Lincecum’s last 11 road starts. San Francisco is 18-8 in the last 26 meetings of these two.
We are not sold that Lincecum has turned the corner so we like Washington as a Moneyline favorite in this game so prior to wagering read online sportsbook reviews.
