Washington Nationals vs. Milwaukee Brewers (8:10 PM ET)
Things are going from bad to worse for the Washington Nationals as they suffered their fifth consecutive defeat on Wednesday, a 4-3 loss at the hands of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Michael Taylor’s three-base error allowed Yasiel Puig to score the winning run as the Nats dropped down to 43-30 in the NL East standings.
The Brewers, on the other hand, will counter with right-hander Zach Davies (5-3, 3.62 ERA). The 23-year-old has been on a roll over his last four starts, posting a minuscule 0.96 ERA over 28 innings during that span. The Brewers have won four of their last five games with Davies as their starter.
The Brewers are 3-2 in their last five home games against the Nationals.
Washington (-175) edges past Milwaukee, 3-1.
Houston Astros vs. Kansas City Royals (8:15 PM ET)
The Houston Astros extended their winning streak to five games with a thrilling 3-2 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday. Marwin Gonzalez hit a tie-breaking RBI triple in the eighth inning to help the Astros complete the three-game sweep. The Astros will look to sustain the momentum of that huge win when they take on the Kansas City Royals in the opening game of their three-game set tonight.
Pitching for the Astros this evening is Dallas Keuchel (3-9, 5.32 ERA). He has won just once in his past 12 starts but is coming off a strong performance against the Cincinnati Reds. The lefty allowed just two runs on five hits in seven innings of action in a nerve-wracking 5-4 win. The Royals, on the other hand, will have Edinson Volquez (7-6, 4.12 ERA) as their starting pitcher tonight. He is 6-0 with a 2.70 ERA in nine career starts against the Astros.
The Royals are 4-1 in their last five home games against the Astros.
Kansas City (+107) wins, 5-3.
