2 units on Washington -200 (moneyline) (risk 2 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
Washington has won three in a row and has its ace going tonight in Max Scherzer, who has 21 strikeouts in 12 2/3 innings. He gave up three hits and no runs in 7 1/3 shutout innings against the Blue Jays on Wednesday. Meanwhile, Rick Porcello is having another feast-or-famine season, and this time it's the latter as he has been hammered with an 0-2 record and 13.50 ERA. The Nationals beat the Mets on Tuesday as Howie Kendrick went 4-for-4, including a home run, and Josh Harrison drove in two runs. New York is 10-29 its last 39 games as a road underdog and 18-38 as a dog overall. Washington is 14-3 its last 17 after scoring at least five runs its previous game and 40-12 as a home favorite. Play the Nationals for a Max Play.
