3* Sunday Night Baseball SMASH (ESPN) on Phillies +104
Motivated by losses in the first two games of this series, expect the Phillies to dig down deep tonight to avoid being swept. The Phillies are 6-1 in their last 7 games after losing the first 2 games of a series.
Philly is in good hands with Hamels on the hill. The silky smooth southpaw is 10-4 (15-5 on the ML) with an ERA of 2.71 in 20 career starts versus the Nats. The Phillies are 9-1 in his last 10 starts vs. the Nationals and 4-0 in his last 4 road starts vs. the Nats.
Philly is 4-0 in Hamels' last 4 starts, 4-0 in his last 4 road starts and 5-0 in his last 5 road starts vs. a team with a winning record.
Washington's Zimmerman is 0-2 (0-3 on the ML) with an ERA of 6.60 in 3 career starts versus Philly. We'll take the Phillies at a nice price.
