The Washington Nationals and the Pittsburgh Pirates will both be gunning for a victory on Friday when they meet at PNC Park.

The Nationals will pin their hopes on the pitching of left hander Gio Gonzalez in this game. Gonzalez has a 11-10 record and a 4.48 ERA this season.

Gonzalez suffered his first loss since July 31 after allowing six runs for the second time in three outings in Saturday’s 7-3 setback at Atlanta. The 31-year-old looks to rebound versus Pittsburgh, against which he owns a 4-0 record and 2.81 ERA in seven career starts. Gonzalez and the Nationals have cooled off the red-hot Sean Rodriguez, who saw his 10-game hitting streak end on Thursday and is 2-for-9 versus the hurler and 3-for-21 with eight strikeouts against the team.

It’ll be Jameson Taillon toeing the rubber for the Pirates in this contest. Right hander Taillon is 4-4 with a 3.48 ERA so far this season.

While Gonzalez endured his first loss in nearly two months, Taillon recorded his first win in over five weeks in Saturday’s 10-4 victory at Cincinnati. The 24-year-old yielded three runs and a career-high nine hits in five innings, but the offensive support was more than enough to overcome his 79-pitch outing. Taillon has permitted three earned runs or fewer in 11 of his last 12 starts.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Pirates listed as 111-moneyline favorites versus the Nationals, while the game’s total is sitting at 8.

Pittsburgh lost its last outing, a 3-1 result against the Brewers on September 22. Bettors who backed the Brewers at 101 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (4) sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.

In their last action, Washington was a 8-3 winner on the road against the Marlins. Bettors on Washington at -204 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (11) sent OVER bettors home happy as well.
