T.M. Selection: Nationsl (8* MONEY-MAKER).
The bottom line is, this is a major pitching mismatch between starters here and I like the home side and Max Scherzer to take advantage. Scherzer is 1-2 with a 3.00 ERA. He's coming off a loss to the Jays, giving up seven runs while striking out five over five innings. Starts like that though have been few and far between for Scherzer and he has the track record and pedigree to make an immediate return to form. Someone who's been pitching "over his head" of late though is Trevor Rogers of the Marlins, as he's 1-0 with a 1.29 ERA. He most recently went six shutout innings vs. the Brewers. The sample size is simply too small here though for the rookie flamethrower and I'm unconvinced that he can maintain these "lights out" numbers. All things considered, great value on Scherzer in this bounce-back spot!
T.M. Prediction: 6-3 Nationals.
