Interleague play continues and underdog payouts at the betting window continue as well. Check out Wednesday's MLB odds action.

The Washington Nationals continued their torrid run through the AL East Tuesday night, taking their second straight game in Toronto and fifth straight decision overall.

The Nats got four runs and nine hits off Blue Jays starter Henderson Alvarez on their way to a 4-2 victory Tuesday. In the process Washington rewarded its financial backers with a payout of +140 on the MLB betting line.

The Nationals went into that series in Toronto just having swept three games from Boston at Fenway.

Also Tuesday, the New York Yankees, as -165 favorites with CC Sabathia starting, rallied from a late 4-0 deficit vs. Atlanta to win 6-4, getting a grand slam from A-Rod and a two-run dong from Nick Swisher.

Down in Miami Clay Buchholz posted his fourth straight quality, helping the Red Sox beat the Marlins 2-1. In St. Louis the Chicago White Sox, as +145 underdogs, beat the Cardinals 6-1.

And out in LA the Dodgers, as +105 home dogs, put an end to the Angels' 10-game road winning streak with a 5-2 victory.

On the day, underdogs on the baseball betting board won eight of 15 games, and won $395, based on theoretical $100 wagers.
