Score: 1 - 2
Money Line: -148 Washington
This is a 7* SITUATIONAL PITCHING MISMATCH on the Washington Nationals.
The Giants hand the ball to Jake Peavy (0-2, 9.39 ERA) who makes his first start since injuring his back in mid April. Note that the veteran posted the deplorable 9.39 ERA in two starts before the setback. The home side counters with Gio Gonzalez (5-4, 4.41 ERA) who has struggled over the first half of the season, but who has looked a lot better of late, he does in fact come into this one off his best outing of the year, going seven shutout innings with two walks and four K's in a lop-sided victory over Baltimore. Gonzalez and the Nats have to be feeling pretty confident that he can continue the momentum into the break as well as he's 3-1 with a highly respectable 2.65 ERA in front of the home town crowd already this season. This is a big talent discrepancy and in my opinion this is indeed the very definition of "great line value," play on the NATIONALS.
