The Nationals will hand the ball to the consistent Jordan Zimmermann on Wednesday, as he looks to turn in yet another solid game for the team. The right-hander has pitched 18 times this season, with 16 of those outings being quality starts. As well, Zimmermann has gone at least six innings in each of his starts so far in 2012.
Zimmermann has already faced the Mets once this season, picking up a no-decision against them on June 5 despite allowing just two runs on five hits over his six innings of work that day – the Nationals went on to win that game 7-6. In his eight career starts against the Mets Zimmermann is 2-2 with 3.56 ERA, and he's 6-6 so far in 2012 with a 2.48 ERA.
The Mets are going with Chris Young on Wednesday, and he's 2-3 with a 4.28 ERA on the season in limited action – he's made just seven starts in 2012. The right-hander took the mound against the Nats in that June 5 contest, also getting a no-decision after allowing three runs (two earned) on six hits over his five innings pitched.
Young is 3-1 over his seven career starts against Washington with a solid 2.74 ERA.
Wednesday's game has a scheduled first pitch of 7:05 p.m. ET, with the series then coming to a close on Thursday afternoon with an All-Star pitching matchup of New York's R.A. Dickey (12-1, 2.66 ERA) and Washington's Gio Gonzalez (12-4, 2.93 ERA).
Heading into Tuesday's series opener the Nationals were 4-2 against the Mets this season, with the OVER/UNDER going 3-3 for totals bettors on the MLB Baseball Las Vegas Odds at Bovada Sportsbook. Washington is the 9/2 favorite to win the NL pennant, with New York set at 16/1 on that odds list.
