The Nationals and Tigers both limp into this series looking to bounce back from rough weekend series’.
Both teams were swept away as the Nationals fell to the Cubs and the Tigers fell to the Rangers.
Detroit had looked like they figured things out this previous week as they rattled off 5 straight wins and were hitting the lights out of the ball.
However, things came to a crashing halt as they were swept away in Cleveland and then once again swept over the weekend by the Rangers, in Detroit. Justin Verlander pitched 7 strong shutout innings on Sunday and left with a 2-0 lead. The story of the season though, has been the bullpen. The pen proceeded to let up an 8 spot in the 8th inning and the Tigers eventually fell.
They’ll send out Anibal Sanchez here, who is 3-3 with a 5.87 ERA on the season. Sanchez comes in off a start where he made it through 6 innings for the first time this season, but still took the loss against Cleveland. Sanchez has seen plenty of the Nats and has gone a stellar 9-1 with a 1.98 ERA in 21 career appearances.
The Nationals left Chicago with quite the bitter taste in their mouth. They were swept away in a 4 game set, with the most recent loss Sunday coming in extras.
Bryce Harper had a frustrating series, as the Cubs took him completely out of the series. On Saturday and Sunday, Harper went 0 for 0 with 9 walks and a hit by pitch. Overall, he finished with 13 walks in the series. Chicago would not give the Nats star anything to hit, which ended up being a solid strategy.
Washington will send out Stephen Strasburg here, who has been the stopped thus far for them. On the season, Strasburg is a perfect 5-0 with an ERA that sits at 2.36. The Nats RH is 8-3 with a 2.88 ERA in his career during interleague play.
