Astros vs Nationals April 19, 2012

Tonight at Nationals Park in Washington, the Washington Nationals host the Houston Astros in the last game of a four game series. Washington has jumped out to a strong start this season as they are 10-3 and that is due to the superb pitching the team has started the season with. They are currently tied for the lead in the majors in victories with 10.

The Nationals have taken the first three games of the series against the Astros and will have Edwin Jackson on the mound tonight. Jackson is 1-0 on the season with an ERA of 2.57. Jackson has pitched with seven different teams in the majors in his nine seasons in the big leagues. On Saturday, he threw a two-hitter using just 92 pitches in a 4-1 win over Cincinnati.

Against Houston Jackson is 2-0 with an ERA of 3.65 over five games. Adam DeRoche is leading the Nationals with a .314 batting average with 2 home runs and 13 RBIs. His RBI total is third in the National League. Bud Norris is scheduled to start for the Astros who are just 4-8 on the season and digging themselves a big hole. Norris has no decisions on the season and his ERA is 3.46. His last victory came last August in Chicago and since then in eight starts, he is 0-3 with an ERA of 4.21.

The Astros are 1-7 in their last eight games and have lost four straight. Norris’ career record is 1-0 against Washington with an ERA of 2.63. The Astros’ Chris Johnson has gone 0 for 7 since his hitting streak was stopped at nine games in Tuesday night’s 1-0 loss to the Nationals. The Nationals have outscored the Astros in the series 10-5. The line is at 7 for the OVER and the Nationals are -155, while the Astros are +145. Take the Nationals to sweep the series with the run total UNDER the posted 7.
