Nationals' Strasburg struggles with command in loss

Stephen Strasburg allowed three runs in 6 2/3 innings on Sunday against the Dodgers. Strasburg struggled to find the zone too often for his liking against Los Angeles; walking four hitters. He was able to strike out seven in that time frame, however, and outside of two homers, the command issues didn’t really hurt Strasburg. That’s quite the caveat, however, and it’s fair to say that the 29-year-old was disappointing on Sunday. His ERA now sits at 3.36, and he’s struck out 75 over his 67 innings for the Nationals in 2018. He’s back on the mound on Sunday against the Marlins.

Marlins' Hernandez gives up one run in tough-luck loss

Elieser Hernandez yielded one run over five innings Monday in a loss to the Mets. Just like his last start, when he took a no-decision against the Dodgers. It's impressive what Hernandez is doing, considering that the Rule 5 pick had never pitched above A-ball coming into the season.

MLB Betting Trends


The Nationals are 5-0 in their last five road games versus the Marlins and have won 11 of their last 12 games versus Miami overall.


The Marlins are just 1-11 in their last 12 games against the Nationals when Strasburg starts.


Assuming Strasburg gets his command problems back under control and Hernandez continues to befuddle hitters that haven't seen him, the under should be a great bet today. The under is 4-1 in Strasburg's last five road starts versus the Marlins and has cashed in four of his last five outings versus Miami overall. It is also 18-7-2 in the last 27 meetings between these two teams at Marlins Park and is 3-1-2 in the last six meetings overall.

The Pick: Nationals/Marlins under 7
