Pitching matchup: Gonzalez will pitch for Washington Nationals, he is 8-2 to the season with ERA 2.35, in last 3 starts he is on ERA 3.5. Great numbers, no doubt. But he has bad record against Yankees. He is 1-4 against Yankees wit ERA 7.27. And when we know, that Yankees are red hot right now and they score more than 5 runs/game against lefties, he could be in trouble today. On other side we have Hughes, ERA 4.76 to the season, but he won last 2 games, where he allowed only 3 runs and he was really good. He never faced Washington, so this is advantage for him.
Key trends: Yankees are 10-1 in their last 11 Interleague games vs. a left-handed starter. Yankees are 40-16 in their last 56 Interleague games. Nationals are 3-7 in their last 10 Interleague home games vs. a right-handed starter.
Reason for pick: NY Yankees are better team and they have been really god in Interleague games. They will face pitcher, who has no success against them. On other side Hughes, who will pitch for Yankees, showed in last two games, that he is in good form. So I will take red hot Yankees for plus money.
