Washington Nationals Fantasy Spin
Anthony Rendon was ejected from Tuesday's game against the Brewers for arguing balls and strikes. Rendon took issue with a called third strike in the top of the seventh inning that looked to be an inch or two outside. This was the star third baseman's first game off the injured list. He finished 0-for-3.
Milwaukee Brewers Fantasy Spin
Brandon Woodruff limited the Mets to one run over five innings last Friday as part of a 3-1 victory. Woodruff allowed an RBI single to Wilson Ramos in the top of the first inning, but he held New York off the board the rest of the way. He racked up seven strikeouts and walked a pair while inducing 13 swinging strikes in his 94 pitches. Woodruff has been up and down so far this season, resulting in a 4.71 ERA through nine appearances (seven starts), but he’s boasting an intriguing 45/12 K/BB ratio over 36 1/3 innings. He’s pitched better than the results indicate and the strikeout upside makes him worthy of consideration in most mixed fantasy leagues.
MLB Betting Trends
The Nationals are now 1-5 in their last six games at Miller Park.
The Brewers are 7-2 in their last nine games versus the Nationals.
The Nationals are 2-6 in Jeremy Hellickson’s last eight road starts and are winless in his last four outings coming off four days of rest. The Brewers, meanwhile, are 6-1 in Woodruff’s last seven home starts and have won nine of his last 12 outings overall. The Nationals can’t get anything going offensively, even in a hitter’s park.
The Pick: Milwaukee Brewers -1.5 (+105)
