2 units on Washington +160 (moneyline) (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: LOSS
Jordan Zimmerman did not pitch in a major league game in 13 months, so you have to give him a pass in his first outing. I would expect vast improvement this time out. His last seven starts prior to the layoff saw him work to a 3.17 ERA, so he definitely has the stuff to provide a quality outing in this one. Anibel Sanchez is a hot and cold pitcher. He is off an outing where he allowed 4 runs to the Mets who have trouble scoring period. He has been very erratic with his command logging six starts with four or more walks and can't be trusted. The Marlins are struggling vs. right-hand pitching where they are 1-6 in their last seven, while Washington has taken four straight vs. the righties. I like Washington in this one.
