Washington is a .500 road team and dealing with injuries to star players. Bryce Harper was a late scratch on Saturday with a bruised back suffered when he was hit by a pitched in Friday's contest. Washington lost 8-5 yesterday, and the Friday loss featured the departure of right-hander Stephen Strasburg (shoulder), who was placed on the disabled list. The Nationals are 2-7 on the road against a team with a losing record. Cincinnati is getting healthier, winning two in a row and three of four. Cincinnati 2B Brandon Phillips returned to the starting lineup on Saturday, and 1B Joey Votto homered in each of the first two games of the series. The Reds have a good arm going in Michael Lorenzen (3.12), they are 4-0 versus the NL East, plus 4-1 as a home dog of +110 to +150. Play the Reds.
