New York vs Washington: MLB NL East Division Fight For First Place

New York vs Washington: MLB NL East Division Fight For First Place

Washington Nationals: Clinging to first overall in the NL East

It wasn’t supposed to be this difficult for Washington. As top chalk (+650) to win the 2015 MLB World Series back in March, the Nationals find themselves in a huge battle with New York (+3300) in the National League East Division. Washington has stumbled since the All-Star break as they are 6-9 over their last 15 games and their lead in the NL East has dropped to one game over the Mets.

New York Mets: Brooms are at the ready at Citi Field in Flushing Meadows

Righting the ship after a 2-6 post MLB Mid-Summer Classic break run, New York is on a 5-2 roll as they look to sweep Washington today. If the first two games are any indication, we are in for another close contest tonight. New York won the series opener 2-1 in 12 innings on Friday before Lucas Duda hit two home runs and a game winning RBI double in the Mets 3-2 victory yesterday. 

Nationals vs Mets MLB Game Day Call: The season series is now tied at six wins apiece. Washington RHP Jordan Zimmermann (8-6 ERA 3.36) faces New York RHP Noah Syndergaard (5-5 ERA 2.70) in the pitchers duel tonight. The Mets rookie has been lights out at home allowing just eight runs over 49.1 innings pitched during seven starts at Citi Field. Neither pitcher received a decision when the Nationals scored three runs in the eighth inning during a 4-3 win over the Mets in DC on July 22. Back the Nationals to avoid the sweep with a 500 unit wager on the money line odds posted at SportsInteraction. Clicking the odds image below gets you instant access to SIA.
