MLB Tuesday

62-42 +25,800

Philadelphia Phillies at Washington Nationals
Philadelphia visiting Nationals Park as they seek a win after getting swept in Atlanta.  The Phillies came close in the middle game of the Atlanta series, but they were clearly beat in the other two. Washington has not been kind either. These two teams met twice and Washington took both series only Cole Hamels had any success against them, he's not pitching today. Philadelphia starter today is Cliff Lee 1-6 with little help from his team, Phillies 5-12,  he will try for only his second win of this season with over 118 innings of work. It will be a tall order considering the home starter will be Stephen Strasburg  11-4 and 3rd money pitcher in the rotation, just a tad below Zimmermann.  Stephen is coming off a strong quality win at N.Y. Mets striking out 11 in 7 inning. The Nationals are 8-2 in last 10. Cliff Lee is coming of a non quality ND, rare Phillies win and Philadelphia failing on current road trip. Though Washington at home with Starsburg is the obvious choice the play is Over 6.5. Strasburg is slightly Over at home and Lee trends Over away with low total like this one usually getting crushed

Game Total Over 6.5 at -107 for 1 unit(W)
Got no help from Washington, but went Over anyway. 0-8 Philadelphia!
