Hellickson was efficient in his last outing while he also was able to pick up his third win of the season in a 5-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates. He pitched five scoreless-innings giving up just two hits to go with three strikeouts and one walk.
After a two-game hiccup where he gave up 16 hits and 11 earned runs, Hellickson got back to his usual type of game where he’ll give you five quality innings. Nine total strikeouts in his last three outings though is cause for concern because you can’t always rely on just inducing ground balls. He’ll look to improve his 3.47 ERA.
Washington has played sub-par baseball in the past week winning three of their seven contests. During that span their lineup is slashing .278/.351/.449 to go with 21 extra-base hits and 35 RBI.
New York Mets
Oswalt was solid in his last outing as he was able to put in the quality start, however he was tagged with his second loss of the season in a 1-3 defeat to the Philadelphia Phillies. He pitched six solid innings giving up just one hit and three earned runs while he struck out seven and walked three.
In 17.1 innings of work, the rookie owns a moderate strikeout (7.27 K/9) to walk (3.12 BB/9) rate, but has already given up four home runs. He’ll look to improve his 6.75 ERA and 5.73 FIP in the pitcher-friendly confines of Citi Field.
New York continues to play sub-par baseball as they could only win three of their eight contests this past week. During that span their lineup is only slashing .189/.253/.325 to go with 19 extra-base hits and 18 RBI.

Oswalt will get another go at home to collect his first win of the season, and the way he pitched in his last game at home has me to believe that he’ll keep this outing close. Washington doesn’t hit as well on the road and they don’t hit as well during day games, but the problem is New York couldn’t hit their way out of a tin can right now. I expect Oswalt to keep New York in it for the most part, but Washington should take this one.
