The Washington Nationals will be trying to extend a winning streak on Monday when they take on the Cincinnati Reds at Great American Ball Park.

The Nationals will trot Stephen Strasburg out to the mound in this one. Right hander Strasburg has a 9-3 record and a 3.43 ERA this season.

Starting this game for the Reds will be Scott Feldman. The right hander has a 3.94 ERA to go along with a 7-6 record this season.

Strasburg entered the All-Star break on a less-than-ideal note on July 8, surrendering a season-high tying six runs (three earned) over a season-low three innings before leaving the game after getting hit in the hip by a comebacker. The three-time All-Star was coming off one on his more impressive performances of the season in a no-decision five days earlier, yielding only two hits in seven scoreless frames against the New York Mets. Joey Votto is 4-for-13 with two homers against Strasburg, who is 2-1 with a 5.00 ERA in seven starts versus the Reds.

Feldman took the loss for the first time in four turns July 5 at Colorado, surrendering a pair of homers among the four runs and five hits he allowed over five innings. The Hawaii native went 2-0 with a 1.80 ERA over his previous three outings, including a win in Washington on June 25 in which he permitted two runs and seven hits across seven frames. Feldman, who is 1-0 with a 2.50 ERA in three starts versus Washington, is 4-2 with a 3.00 ERA in nine turns at Great American Ball Park this season.

Oddsmakers currently have the Nationals listed as 140-moneyline favorites versus the Reds, while the game’s total is sitting at 9½.

The offense and starting pitching of the Washington Nationals have been among the best in the National League all season long, but their bullpen has consistently let them down in big situations. Washington addressed its biggest shortcoming over the weekend by acquiring a pair of solid relievers from Oakland, and the NL East leaders may look to show them off Monday as they eye a four-game sweep of the host Cincinnati Reds.

The Nationals lead the NL in batting average (.279) and runs scored (515) while ranking third in starters’ ERA (3.57), but 14 blown saves and a major-league worst 5.31 ERA from their relievers may be the only thing that has kept them from completely running away with the East. Washington finally made a move for bullpen help Sunday, trading Blake Treinen and a pair of prospects to the Athletics in exchange for right-hander Ryan Madson and left-hander Sean Doolittle. The Nationals haven’t needed much from their bullpen in this series, however, as they have slugged 10 homers en route to outscoring the Reds 29-11. Scooter Gennett was one of the few bright spots this weekend for Cincinnati, driving in a total of seven runs over the last two contests.

Last time out for Cincinnati, they were a 14-4 loser as they battled the Nationals on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Nationals at 105 were rewarded, while the 18 combined runs moved the game OVER for totals bettors.

The Nationals were a 14-4 winner in their most recent outing on the road against the Reds. That made winners of bettors who got Washington at 105 on the moneyline, while the total score (18) was good news for OVER bettors.
