Probable Pitcher: Sean Manaea (6-6, 4.86 ERA)
Manaea will be on the mound in the 4th game of the series for the Padres. Manaea allowed three runs on four hits and a walk, striking six in four innings in a 4-3 loss Tuesday in Miami. He did not factor into the decision. He hasn't pitched against the Nats in his career.
Washington are 5-12 SU in their last 17 games.
Washington are 3-8 SU in their last 11 games on the road.
The total has gone OVER in 5 of Washington's last 7 games when playing on the road against San Diego.
The total has gone UNDER in 4 of San Diego's last 5 games against Washington.
San Diego are 8-4 SU in their last 12 games at home..
The Padres bounced back and got the narrow victory in the 3rd game of the series and will try to tie this series by sending Sean Manaea to the mound who has struggled this season allowing 3 runs or more in each of his last 3 starts. The Nationals will send Patrick Corbin to the mound who has also been pounded lately allowing 4 or more runs in each of his last 7 starts. Expect a high scoring game as both offenses will score easy against these struggling pitchers. Take the over.
PICK: Over 8.5 (-110)
