Betting Baseball: Nationals vs. Giants Game 2

August 14, 2012 MLB Baseball

These two first place teams will tee it up once again in the second of a three game set tonight. Game 2 is scheduled for a start time of 10:15ET in AT&T Park, nestled on the shores of McCovey Cove.

Last nights score might be more indicative of a Redskins/Forty Niners matchup with the final score being 14-2 in favor of the Nationals. In fairness to Jim Harbaugh and his troops, though, it is hard to imagine them scoring only a safety against the Skins. Check the Baseball Lines for Nationals vs. Giants Game 2.
