Betting Pick: Washington Nationals vs. San Francisco Giants

The San Francisco Giants and the Washington Nationals will resume a three-game series Tuesday night from Oracle Park. The Nationals will give the starting nod to 35-year-old right-hander Anibal Sanchez, and the Giants will respond with 24-year-old left-hander Conner Menez. The Nationals won two of three against the Giants in April.

Anibal Sanchez will make his 21st start of the season, eying his first win since July 20th. Sanchez struggled in his previous start, squandering four runs on 10 hits in five innings vs. the Braves, resulting in a no-decision in a 5-4 Nationals loss. Overall, the veteran right-hander is having a strong season, and he enters this one with a terrific 3.80 ERA and a 1.34 WHIP accompanied with a 6-6 record in 106.2 innings of work. Sanchez has excelled in his career against SF, registering a 4-1 record and a stifling 2.05 ERA in seven starts. Brandon Belt is 3 for 11  against Sanchez, while Brandon Crawford is 0 for 10, and Buster Posey is 1 for 11.

The Nationals stand 12th in the Majors with an average of 5.00 runs on the season. The Washington pitching staff is carrying a 4.49 team ERA, pegging them 16th in the big leagues. The Nationals are 27-28 on the road entering Monday’s play.

The Giants stand 26th in the big leagues with an average of 4.32 runs on the season. The SanFrancisco pitching staff owns a solid 4.39 team ERA, positioning them 14th in the Majors. The Giants are 25-28 on their home field this season.
