The Nationals are 1-5 over their last six games and are struggling to maintain the No. 2 spot in the National League.
Washington’s offense, which has been phenomenal for most of the season, has really struggled down the stretch and has averaged only three runs per game over the last week.
The Nats’ offense is filled with weapons, including Bryce Harper, Daniel Murphy and Wilson Ramos.
Those guys need to be better in this final week of the season, or the Nationals will fall behind the Dodgers in the standings.
They’ll tab A.J. Cole to take the mound in this one, a guy with a 1-2 record and a 4.68 ERA.
The Pirates were in the Wild Card talks until last week, but they’re too far behind the Mets and Giants to have any postseason hopes.
The Bucs have been plagued by lackluster pitching this year, and they find themselves 20th in runs allowed, 26th in hits allowed and 26th in BAA.
Pittsburgh has had to rely on its offense to score plenty of runs because of the pitching staff’s inabilities to get the job done. Let’s see how the Pirates fare with the young Tyler Glasnow on the mound as he looks for his first win of the season.
The Bucs don’t have anything left to play for, so spoiling the Nationals’ party makes for a nice incentive in this spot.
