Nationals Look To Take Advantage Of Visiting Brewers As Four-Game Set Wraps Up

Posted by Dale "Skip" Lalonde on 7/2/2013 8:05:13 PM

The Washington Nationals are nearly as far back in the National League Wild Card race as they are from the division-leading Atlanta Braves in the NL East, and will look to close both of those gaps when they wrap up their online sports betting series against the Milwaukee Brewers this week. There will be an even shorter turnaround than usual in the nation’s capital for Thursday finale, but that should suit the Nationals just fine as they look to take advantage of a team that hasn’t been very good at all regardless of where they have played.

Washington’s offense exploded for 10 runs in the opener of the four-game series, and will look to do the same when they host the Brewers on Wednesday. Milwaukee starter Kyle Lohse hasn’t been brilliant this online sportsbook season at 3-6 with a 3.63 ERA, but he has looked much better than he did earlier in the year having not allowed more than three earned runs in any of his last six starts. Lohse looked good early on in a game against the Pittsburgh Pirates before a long rain delay forced him to retire, and the Nationals’ offense has lacked consistency all season. The problem is that Milwaukee hasn’t been much better on the road, and will have Ross Detwiler on the mound for Wednesday’s start. Detwiler has allowed 13 earned runs over his last 14.2 innings of work to see his ERA climb to 4.13, for the season, and at just 2-6 this looks like a game that the Brewers could steal.

The Nationals should feel much more comfortable wrapping up the four-game series with rookie Taylor Jordan making his second-career start on Thursday, as he gave up just one earned run to the New York Mets in his majors debut. Jordan has some great stuff and could be a real threat for Washington down the line, but for now they will only expect about four to five innings of quality work. Fellow rookie Johnny Hellweg will actually end up starting this game for Milwaukee after pitching an inning against them in Monday’s loss, as he gave up an earned run on two hits in just one inning of work. That was after getting lit up for five earned runs in just 1.2 innings of work against the Pittsburgh Pirates in his major league debut, and after struggling in each of his first two sports betting appearances it isn’t about to get easier. The Nationals cannot afford to drop many more games to teams that are actually below them in the standings, so the sense of urgency will kick in for what should be a big win in the series finale, as they try and fight their way back in to both the division and NL Wild Card picture. This game will potentially take place less than 14 hours after the previous night’s game finishes, making for an interesting lunch hour in the nation’s capital.
