Washington at San Diego

1 unit on San Diego +123 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 2.23) RESULT: LOSS
The end of a 7-game road trip for Washington, a long way from home. Former ace Stephen Strasburg (2-3, 4.73 ERA) takes the mound as a favorite, but the Nationals are 2-6 in his last eight starts. The Nationals are also 2-5 when Strasburg is chalk. Strasburg is off the worst outing of his career on Tuesday when he surrendered eight runs over 3 1/3 innings in a 14-6 loss to Arizona. San Diego is home with a much-improved offense from a year ago, ranked seventh in runs scored. The Padres have a winning record at home and are 39-19 in their last 58 home games. Ian Kennedy goes for the home team, and he's 3-2 with a 2.31 ERA in six career starts versus Washington, including a one-hit, seven-inning performance at Nationals Park on April 27, 2014. The Padres are 10-4 in Kennedy's last 14 home starts, as well as 36-16 against a starter with a WHIP greater than 1.30. Play San Diego.
