The Washington Nationals are putting the pedal to the metal to try and win the NL East division and give Stephen Strasburg a chance to rest before the postseason. After winning three straight, they are now 77-46 on the season and owners of the MLB’s best record.
I look for the Nationals to cap off the series sweep over the Atlanta Braves tonight behind Ross Detwiler. The left-hander is 7-5 with a 3.25 ERA and 1.164 WHIP in 19 starts and six relief appearances this year.
Detwiler is 5-1 with a 2.88 ERA in 10 home starts. He has never suffered a loss against Atlanta, going 2-0 with a 3.62 ERA in six career starts. In his last start against the Braves on July 22nd, he allowed one earned run over seven innings of a 9-2 Washington home victory.
The Braves are 1-7 in their last 8 games after losing the first 2 games of a series. The Nationals are 8-1 in their last 9 during game 3 of a series. Washington is 14-2 in Detwiler’s last 16 starts vs. National League East opponents, including a perfect 8-0 this season. The Nationals are 5-0 in Detwiler’s last 5 starts vs. Braves. Bet the Nationals Wednesday.
