Money Line: -173.00 NY Mets (Away)
I like the New York Mets to win this game against the Washington Nationals on Wednesday. The Mets have won 2 games in a row now but they have been rolling all year and are 1 of the teams with the most wins in the league at the moment. They just won their previous series over the Phillies with some crazy endings to those games and they won the 1st game of this series too, again with a late comeback in that game where they erased a 2-0 deficit. The Mets have shown time and time again this year that there is no deficit they can't overcome in a game but it's not just their batters that are performing great, their pitching staff has also been having a great year. The Nationals are on the opposite end of the division at the moment in last place with the reverse record of the Mets and I think the Mets are only going to grow their lead in the division with this game. The Nationals have lost 2 games in a row now but they only have the 1 win in their previous 7 games and I think they will just extend their losing skid here. Aaron Sanchez (1-2, 8.56 ERA) is up for the Nats in this game and he has only pitched in 3 games this year but he has been terrible in all of them. He has given up 3+ runs in every start and just gave up 7 runs in his most recent game. He hasn't gone very deep in games either since he has only made it 5 full innings 1 time and I think this is going to be another game where he gets beat up on early. Tylor Megill (4-1, 2.43 ERA) is up for the Mets here and the Mets have had a lot of success with him pitching in their games. He has given up more than 2 runs in 4/6 of his starts and I think he is going to continue to pitch well here. I expect the Mets to get an early jump on Sanchez here with the way he's been pitching this year and I think this will be a game where the Mets put up a lot of runs. I like the Mets to win this game.
T.M. Prediction: 7-2 Mets.
