In their last games the Nationals lost to the L.A. Dodgers 9-2 and the Pirates beat the Cincinnati Reds 3-2.

On the season the Pirates have an Over/Under record of 41-53 and a run-line W/L record of 59-37 and the Nationals have an Over/Under record of 46-47 and a run-line W/L record of 40-58.

This season the Nationals are 27-21 at home and the Pirates are 25-21 on the road.

The Nationals are 8-3 in their last 11 home games against he Pirates.

Charlie Morton (1-2 3.19 ERA) takes the mound for the Pirates tonight and in his last start he only gave up 2 earned runs in 7 innings, but did not get much run support in a no decision facing the New York Mets.


Dan Haren (4-10 5.61 ERA) goes for the Nationals and in his last outing he was solid not giving up any earned runs in 6 innings, but the offense did not help him out and he took a no decision against the Miami Marlins.

The Nationals have dropped Dan Haren’s last 10 starts and he is in the longest winless drought of his career.

Morton is 0-2 with a 4.11 ERA in 3 career starts against Washington but hasn’t faced them in nearly 2 seasons.

Washington’s Bryce Harper is hitting .206 in 17 games since returning from a knee injury and he has struck out in 11 of his last 23 at bats.

The Pirates are hitting an NL-worst .225 with men in scoring in position and their offense only ranks 26th in the Majors in both runs and team batting average.

In some betting trends for this NL match up the Pirates are 6-1 in their last 7 games as a road underdog, 1-4 in their last 5 road games, and they have an Under record of 9-2 in their last 11 games.

The Nationals are 1-6 in their last 7 overall, 0-10 in Haren’s last 10 starts, and they have an Under record of 8-2 in their last 10 games.

Jason’s Pick: Both teams’ offenses are struggling, but I have to go with the Pirates on the road in this one, as I think Haren’s bad luck will continue.
