In the end the Nats decided to give Scherzer and extra day off after pitching one inning in relief on Friday and will go tonight instead. It’s anyone’s guess if he’ll be affected by the outing. The oddsmakers have Washington as a -133 favorite giving the Dodgers some potential value at plus money.
The Nats put an end to the Dodgers eight-game winning streak with their 4-2 win on Friday. In that win today’s probable starter Max Scherzer pitched one inning striking out the side. He now comes back two days later to start. Will he not miss a beat or will the relief work take its toll?

The Yankees continued their winning ways over the Twins with an easy 10-4 romp last night. They’ll send out Masahiro this afternoon who hasn’t lost a game to the Minnesota in his career covering five starts. Can the Twins avoid falling in a 2-0 series hole?
The Yankees took four of the six contests between these two squads this season. Paxton had one start this season against the Twins tossing three scoreless innings and getting a ND in a Yanks win. Jose Berrios toes the rubber for the Twins and he’ll be making his first start against NYY since 2018 when they roughed him up for five runs in four innings pitched.
The Astros finished the season off strong winning six of their last seven games. They send out Ace Justin Verlander who owned the Rays in two starts this season pitching 12 1/3 innings of one run ball. Tampa Bay starter Tyler Glasgow had a decent as a starter back on March 30th, but this time around he’ll be the “opener” role. You’ll have to lay over two to one to bet Houston. Read on to see who Dan is playing.
The Braves took four of the six meetings these two teams played this season including two of three played at SunTrust Park in Atlanta. Keuchel didn’t start any of the six games and will be making his first start against the Cards since august 2016 when he was with the Astros. St. Louis starter Miles Mikolas made one start against Atlanta and it was pretty good going seven innings allowing three runs and striking out nine, but he took the loss in a 5-2 Braves win.
