Washington is 5-2 in their last 7 Tuesday games and 5-11 in their last 16 interleague games. The over is 4-1 in Washington’s last 5 Tuesday games. Seattle is 8-0 in their last 8 Tuesday games and 5-0 in their last 5 interleague games. The over is 4-1 in Seattle’s last 5 Tuesday games. Washington is 13-4 in these two teams last 17 head to head meetings.
Washington comes into this game with the worst record in all of baseball, while the Mariners are fighting for a wild card spot. Seattle did not play well in their last series, losing to a bad Oakland team. Seattle will start Robbie Ray, who has allowed five runs over his last 19.1 innings pitched. For the Nationals, Erick Fedde is coming off of an extended stay on the IL. I am taking the under in this game as I think Ray shuts the Nationals offense down.
