Nats offense wakes up late

Washington scored two runs in the seventh inning and another three in the ninth Tuesday night to secure a 5-4 victory at the Phillies. Anthony Rendon led the way by going 3-for-4 with a home run, two runs and two RBIs. Ryan Zimmerman was 3-for-4 with three doubles and two runs. Koda Glover earned the win in relief as he struck out one and walked one in a scoreless inning. Greg Holland picked up his first save of the season as he retired both batters he faced.

Herrera, Alfaro homer

Odubel Herrera hit a solo home run in four at-bats Tuesday to help pace the Philly offense in the loss. Scott Kingery was 2-for-3 with a run. Jorge Alfaro finished 1-for-4 with a 2-run homer. Pat Neshek suffered the loss in relief as he gave up two earned runs on two hits in one-third of an inning.

Gio Gonzalez (7-11, 4.35 ERA) will start today for the Nats, while the Phillies turn to Jake Arrieta (9-9, 3.37).

MLB Betting Trends


The under is 36-16-1 in the last 53 Nationals road games. Washington is 0-8 in Gonzalez' last eight road games.


The over is 8-1 in the last nine Phillies games following a loss.


Gonzalez has struggled over the last few months after starting the season in great fashion. He particularly has had a rough time on the road. Philadelphia could use a win and with the better pitcher on the mound plus at home should help get the job done today.
