Neither team has been hitting the ball well with the Padres scoring 3 or fewer runs in their last 7 and the Nationals doing the same in 6 straight before (coughs) exploding for 5 runs yesterday. The starting pitchers have been solid with San Diego starter Eric Stultz pitching better in his last 3 after get lit up by Miami in his season debut. Washington starter Jordan Zimmerman also got roughed up by Miami but has been ultra-sharp since with back-to-back quality starts going a combined 14 innings allowing 3 runs while striking out 13. Take the Under 7.5 (-125).
