Phillies vs Nationals Free Pick May 6, 2012

The Washington Nationals have started the season as one of the best teams in baseball. The Nationals have a season record of 18-9. They will try to sweep their weekend series against the Philadelphia Phillies tonight before a national television audience.

The Nationals’ pitching staff has carried the team early in the season, but their offensive bats are starting to come alive. Washington has won four straight and will send Jordan Zimmerman to the mound.

The Nationals’ offense sputtered in late April when they lost five games, but of late, they are scoring a number of runs each game. In their four game winning streak, Washington won the first three games by just a single run, but Saturday defeated the Phillies 7-1. Washington has now won seven consecutive games against the Phillies.

Zimmerman is 1-2 on the season with an ERA of 1.89. Zimmerman has pitched well thus far this season but his team has only given him one run or less in four out of his five starts. His record is 0-2 for his career against Philly in three starts.

The Phillies will send Cole Hamels to the mound in an attempt to salvage one game of the series. Hamels is 3-1 on the season with an ERA of 2.78. On Tuesday, he did not get a decision but allowed just two runs in six innings. He lost his first start but has gone 3-0 with an ERA of 2.33 since then.

The Phillies bats have been quiet and Carlos Ruiz had his seven game hit streak come to an end on Saturday. Nevertheless, Ruiz is hitting .419 with three homeruns, three doubles and has knocked in 15 runs in his last eight games.

The Nationals are favored -115 in the game with the Phillies at +105. The run total is at 6. Smart money takes the Phillies to save face and win one game in the series. The run total will end UNDER.
