Washington vs Philadelphia: MLB Pitching Mismatch Betting Advice
Playing the second of a three-game series, the Washington Nationals vs Philadelphia Phillies contest on the SportsInteraction Major League Baseball betting board as caught our attention today. Although the Nationals are a huge disappointment this season, the DC Crew has a big pitching advantage over the Phillies here. First pitch for this MLB National League East Division duel is slated for 7:05 PM ET on September 15, 2015, at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, PA.

Washington Nationals: Underachievers are playing out the string

Heralded as a top favorite to represent the National League in the MLB 2015 World Series back in the preseason, Washington has done very little to live up to their lofty expectations. The Nationals are 73-70 and they have fallen 9.5 games out of first in the NL East Division. Any hopes of a Wild Card berth have faded as well as the Nats are 9.5 games back in that race as well. Following a disastrous five game losing streak, that included a sweep by the NY Mets, the Nationals have won their last two contests. Washington has posted a 9-5 record in their season series with Philadelphia.

Philadelphia Phillies: MLB cellar dwellers send a gas can to the bump in this contest

Sitting with a 56-89 overall record, Philadelphia is the worst team in baseball as the Phillies are 27.5 games behind the Mets in the NL East. That said, the Phillies have shown some fight as they are 26-27 since the All-Star break. Philadelphia showed some fight last night as well as they came back from a 5-1 deficit before dropping an 8-7 decison in eleven innings in the series opener. September has not been kind to Philadelphia as the Phillies have posted a 4-9 record so far this month. The Phillies home record (33-40) is much better than their 23-49 mark on the road.

Washington vs Philadelphia: The Nationals have a pitching edge here as RHP Stephen Strasburg (8-7 ERA 4.30) faces RHP David Buchanan in the battle on the bump. Strasburg has not lived to his ace status, thank inpart to injuries, but he has been better lately as he’s allowed 12 earned runs over 37.1 innings pitched during his last six starts. Buchanan has been a gas can for most of the season as he’s allowed three or more runs in ten of his eleven starts – including 21 during his last three outings. Give us the Nationals with a 500 unit wager on the money line price posted at the SportsInteraction online sportsbook. Get in on MLB betting action at SIA via the link below.
