The Washington Nationals and the Pittsburgh Pirates will meet again to play a 3-game series at the Nationals Park. The Nationals won their last series against the Rangers while the Pirates were swept by the Rays but are 3-1 against the Nats this season.

The Pirates get to this game with a 29-43 record and have lost 4 of their last 5 games. The team is averaging 3.6 runs and allowing 5 runs per game. Ke'Bryan Hayes is batting for .270 AVG and has 21 RBI. Bryan Reynolds leads in home runs with 12.

Probable Pitcher:  Erick Fedde (5-5, 4.46 ERA)

Fedde will be on the mound in the 1st game of the series for the Nationals. Fedde earned the win against the Orioles on Tuesday, scattering two hits and a walk over six scoreless innings. He struck out four batters. He has allowed 2 runs on 4 hits with 2 walks and 6 strikeouts in 5 innings versus the Pirates in his career. He has been credited with the win.

BETTING TRENDS

Pittsburgh are 1-10 SU in their last 11 games on the road.

Pittsburgh are 2-8 SU in their last 10 games when playin

Washington are 4-10 SU in their last 14 games.

Washington are 1-8 SU in their last 9 games at home.

Prediction

The Nationals managed to beat the Rangers on the road but they return home where they are losing the 69% of the time this season. They will face a Pirates team that were swept in their last series and have been terrible on the road. The Nats get here in better shape and Fedde is coming from a great start vs Orioles. Pittsburgh haven't announced their starting pitcher but still I think the Nationals take care of business at home.

PICK: Nationals ML (-145)
