The Washington Nationals need a win after splitting their last eight games. The Nationals have scored nine runs in their last three games and three or less runs in seven of their last 10 games.

Yunel Escobar leads Washington with 104 hits and 30 RBI while Bryce Harper and Ian Desmond have combined for 90 RBI. The Washington Nationals have lost five of their last seven home games. Jordan Zimmermann takes the hill, and he’s 8-5 with a 3.27 ERA and 84 strikeouts this season. Zimmermann is 8-5 with a 2.91 ERA and 95 strikeouts in his career against the Mets.
The Mets are 4-0 in their last 4 during game 3 of a series and 1-5 in Syndergaards last 6 road starts. The Nationals are 10-3 in their last 13 vs. a team with a winning record and 69-31 in Zimmermanns last 100 starts. The Nationals are 6-0 in Zimmermanns last 6 starts vs. Mets.
Short turnaround and the Mets scored all of their runs on Tuesday, which means they're probably back to scoring two or less runs for the next week. Give me the Nats and the cheap chalk.
