Milwaukee vs. Washington,
10/01/2019 20:08 EDT,
Score: 3 - 4
Money Line: -174 Washington
This is a 7* play on the Washington Nationals.
The Brewers went on an 18-2 run that got them into the post-season, but then lost their final three games of the regular season. They might have run out of gas, and now they face a do or die game on the road with a starting pitcher who's likely to go just a few innings, and their best player sidelined with a season ending injury.
Brandon Woodruff will toe the slab for Milwaukee, and he's pitched just four innings in two appearances since July. He was sharp in those games, allowing no runs on no hits and striking out seven.
The Nats hand the ball to Mad Max, who struck out 10 while allowing a pair of runs on six hits in six innings in his only start against Milwaukee this season. Scherzer is 2-2 with a 2.29 ERA in eight career starts versus the Brewers.
The Nationals are 12-3 in Scherzer's last 15 starts.
