Washington vs Arizona: Nationals Host Diamondbacks in The District

Washington vs Arizona: Nationals Host Diamondbacks in The District

Washington Nationals: Struggling squad turns to Scherzer

Still reeling from their weekend series sweep by the Mets, Washington (54-50) has fallen a game behind New York in the two-horse race in the NL East. The Nationals are 6-11 since the All-Star break and have lost four in row – including a 6-4 loss in the series opener to the Diamondbacks last night. Washington ace RHP Max Scherzer (11-8 ERA 2.22) gets the call for the Nationals tonight.

Arizona Diamondbacks: Clinging to slight hopes of winning a Wild Card playoff spot

One of the hotter teams in the Majors recently, Arizona is on a 8-3 roll, the Diamondbacks play the eighth game of a ten-game road trip tonight. Arizona (51-53) is 8.5 games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NL West and they are six games back in the NL Wild Card race. After spending the entire 2014 MLB season recovering for Tommy John surgery, LHP Patrick Corbin (2-3 ERA 3.21) makes his sixth start of the 2015 MLB campaign for the Diamondbacks in this contest.

Washington vs Arizona: The Maximizer closed out July with a three hit 1-0 shutout win over the Miami Marlins last Thursday. Scherzer limited the Diamondbacks to one run on five hits when Washington blitzed Arizona 11-1 back on May 11, 2015, and we expect more of the same here. Though far from a team that can be trusted recently, we like the Nationals tonight. Wager on Washington with a 500 unit bet on the money line price posted at the Bodog sportsbook.
