MLB Live Betting: Blue Jays vs Nationals

The Toronto Blue Jays head to the US capitol to take on the Washington Nationals live at 00:00 (UK).

The first of the three-game interleague series gets ready to rock tonight from Washington DC, as the Toronto Blue Jays fly in to take on the Washington Nationals. The Jays are currently 3.5 games back of the Rays in first place, while the Nationals are leading the NL East ahead of the Mets.

Jordan Zimmerman is set to take the mound for the home team and he has been incredible so far over his first eight games. Zimmerman has not allowed more than three earned runs since April 13 and he is one of the big reasons that the Nationals are still leading the NL East.

For the Jays, Cy Young Award winner R.A. Dickey will take the mound, but he hasn't been throwing the way that teams are used to seeing. The 40-year-old is almost at the end of his knuckle ball career and has allowed at least five earned runs in his last four starts. He has also allowed seven home runs in the last four games, which is a stat that will haunt him and his team.

Good news for the visitors from Canada, their catcher, Dioner Navarro is expected to get the start after being out since April 21st will an injured hamstring. The Jays will also be playing against their former teammate Casey Janssen. Janssen was the fourth on the Jays all-time saves list with 90 over his eight year career in Canada.

Zimmerman for the Nationals has had great luck against the Jays in the one game he has faced them. He is 9-5 with an ERA of 3.03 in all Interleague play.
