The Washington Nationals and the Houston Astros will both be trying to pick up a win on Wednesday when they battle at Minute Maid Park.

The Nationals will give the ball to starter Edwin Jackson in this one. Right hander Jackson is 4-2 this season with a 3.43 ERA.

The Astros will counter Jackson with Mike Fiers. Right hander Fiers has a 4.39 ERA to go along with a 7-8 record this season.

Jackson has won back-to-back starts, allowing just two runs over 13 innings. The 33-year-old journeyman has posted a solid 1.11 WHIP in six starts for the Nationals and has struck out 29 while issuing only eight walks. Jackson is 2-1 with a 4.31 ERA in seven career appearances (six starts) against the Astros, with his most-recent outing coming in 2012.

Fiers has been torched regularly over his last five starts while going 0-4 with a 7.36 ERA.

The Washington Nationals look to continue their domination of Houston when they visit the Astros on Wednesday for the middle contest of their three-game set. Washington recorded a 4-3 victory in the series opener to beat Houston for the ninth straight time and 13th in their last 14 meetings.

Matt Wieters slugged a two-run homer and Howie Kendrick contributed a two-run triple as Washington maintained its 13 1/2-game lead over Miami in the National League East. The Nationals are 4-1 during their seven-game road trip and have won nine of their last 12 overall contests. The Astros have dropped back-to-back games and are just 7-13 this month despite running away with the American League West. AL batting leader Jose Altuve (.358) is hitless in seven at-bats in the consecutive defeats after recording two hits in five of the previous seven contests.

The Astros were a 4-3 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Nationals. That made winners of bettors who got Washington at 158 on the moneyline, while the total score (7) was good news for UNDER bettors.

Washington was a 4-3 winner in its last match on the road against the Astros. They won as +158 underdogs, while the total score of 7 made winners of UNDER bettors.
