This is a tough situational spot for Washington, playing its eighth road game over the last 13 contests. The Nationals are 2-5 when Jordan Zimmermann faces the National League Central and for the season he's allowed more hits than innings pitched. He has a 5.01 ERA on the road. The Nationals took the opener 2-1 on Monday and the UNDER is 7-1 when Zimmermann starts with the total set at 9.0 to 10.5. Chicago is on a 6-2 run at home and has righty Kyle Hendricks (1-1, 4.14) going, off a shutout at San Diego 3-0. Hendricks has never faced the Nationals and is 4-2 with a 2.83 ERA in 10 career starts at Wrigley Field. The Cubs are 13-4 when Hendricks starts on grass, plus 4-1 when he is a home underdog. Chicago has great pitching depth and defense, 15-4-2 UNDER the total at home against a right-handed starter. Take the Chicago Cubs and play the UNDER for my MLB Game of the Month.
