Scherzer shines again

Trea Turner ended the contest 1-for-5 with a home run and three RBIs. Juan Soto finished 1-for-3 with a walk and two RBIs. Anthony Rendon went 2-for-4 and a run scored.

Granderson drives in lone run
Miami fell by a count of 5-1 at home Tuesday night against Washington to drop to 30-47 overall and 13-26 at home. Curtis Granderson helped lead the Marlins as he ended the game 1-for-3 with an RBI.

MLB Betting Trends
The Nationals are 4-0 in their last four Wednesday games. Washington is 0-4 in the last four Corbin road starts.
The Marlins are 4-1 in their last five games. Miami is 2-9 in its last 11 home games.
Corbin hadn't been in the best of form, but rebounded with a fantastic outing his last time out at home versus Philadelphia. With Miami's offense nothing to write home about, he should excel again. Gallen has a ton of promise, but he's a rookie and might have to be close to perfect. Expect Gallen and/or the bullpen to falter in a Nationals win.
