Nats drop opener
Washington had a four-game winning streak come to an end last night in a 5-4 loss at San Diego. The Nats are 28-34 on the season, 13-19 on the road and 32-26 with the over. Washington will have Erick Fedde taking the mound tonight. He is 1-0 on the season with a 2.55 ERA.
The Nationals scored four runs in the first inning and then were silenced from there on Thursday. Howie Kendrick drove in two runs and then Brian Dozier had a two-run home run. However, Patrick Corbin couldn’t hang on to the lead. He gave up five runs over five innings. He had five walks with six strikeouts.
Padres end skid
San Diego snapped a two-game losing streak on Thursday with the 5-4 victory. The Padres have still lost four of their last six. They are 32-31 on the season, 17-18 at home and 31-28 with the over. Nick Margevicius is getting the start tonight. He is 2-6 on the season with a 5.40 ERA.
The Padres overcame the early deficit to pick up the 5-4 win on Thursday. Joey Lucchesi got the win on the mound despite giving up four runs in five innings. Kirby Yates earned his 23rd save of the season as part of a bullpen that pitched four perfect innings. Hunter Renfroe had a two-run home run to spark the comeback for San Diego. Ian Kinsler added two hits.
MLB Betting Trends
The Nationals are 7-19 in their last 26 Friday games and 2-8 in their last 10 road games against a left-handed starter.
The Padres are 6-13 in their last 19 home games against a losing team and 13-27 in their last 40 Game 2’s of a series.
Fedde has only started three games, but most of his numbers have been pretty solid. The same can’t be said of Margevicius. He has allowed at least five runs in his last three starts and at least three runs in six of his last seven outings. Washington can start fast again tonight, the defense and pitching will just have to stay out of its own way this time.
