Tillman, Orioles Set To Face Zimmermann, Nationals As Interleague Series Resumes Wednesday

Posted by Dale "Skip" Lalonde on 5/28/2013 7:07:41 PM

The Washington Nationals are in pursuit of the division-leading Atlanta Braves in the National League East. The Baltimore Orioles are also just behind the division leaders in the American League East – only they have both the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox to catch. The Nationals and Orioles will resume their interleague series on Wednesday with a key sports betting pitching match up at Camden Yards. Chris Tillman has been solid for Baltimore this season, but he will be pitching opposite Jordan Zimmermann, who has been even better for Washington.

The Orioles opened the series with a 6-2 win on Monday, tagging Gio Gonzalez for four earned runs on eight hits over just 5.2 innings of work. The Baltimore offense ranks second in the majors in batting average and third in runs scored, and will need to find a way to get going early on against Zimmermann.

Offense has been a struggle all season for the Nationals, as they have struggled mightily with their consistency. Washington’s offense ranks just 28th in both batting average and runs scored, and that is even with a relatively strong season from Bryce Harper. Harper is batting .287 with 12 home runs and has scored 29 of the team’s 175 runs, but the rest of the order just hasn’t been good enough. That will put even more pressure on the 8-2 Zimmermann, whose 1.71 ERA ranks among the best in the majors. Zimmermann hasn’t allowed more than two earned runs in seven-straight starts, and will need another quality performance to help his Nationals steal this game.

Tillman has been pretty good for the Orioles of late, and part of that is doing just enough to allow the top-ranked slugging team in baseball to help you get the win. The 25-year old Tillman has earned a win in four of his last six starts, with the Baltimore offense scoring five runs or more in each of those online sports betting victories. The Orioles should have a little more problems trying to put up big numbers against Zimmermann, so it will be on Tillman to keep the Washington offense in check until Baltimore breaks through.

MLB Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

The Nationals haven’t scored with much consistency this season, but they have done well the last few times that Zimmermann has started, scoring three runs or more in three of the last four. That could be enough against Tillman as long as Zimmermann brings his best stuff, and that is what it will come down to for a Washington team that will continue to find ways to win games as long as its starting pitching is performing at a high level.
