Zack Greinke was in line for a win until he gave up a three-run home run to Aaron Altherr in his final inning of work at Citizen’s Bank Park on Wednesday.
Of course, the only reason Arizona was ahead in the first place was because Philadelphia gifted it two unearned runs in an eventual 5–3 win. Jake Arrieta held the D’Backs’ offense down all day and got through seven strong.
Zack Godley was a stud under the radar last season and he’s picked right up where he left off this season. He had a bit of a rough one against the Dodgers two starts ago but has been stellar in all the rest and has an ERA right around 3.00.
He throws strikes, commands all his pitches and mixes well. There isn’t anything too noteworthy about Godley; he’s just a good, solid pitcher.
After so many seasons of being a great team in the regular season and falling flat in the playoffs, Washington could be in for a struggle finally.
The Nats never had legitimate power behind Bryce Harper, even if Ryan Zimmerman hit 36 homers or Jayson Werth was there. They still don’t.
I’ve always considered that Washington’s big problem and it’s never made a true effort at fixing it. Instead of going after a big-time bat to pair with Harper, it always tries to solve its problem with mediocre value to lengthen the lineup.
It hasn’t gotten it done and I don’t think ever will. Now, the Nats are facing the clock with Harper’s impending free agency and it’s been a poor start to the season.
Stephen Strasburg remains an ace, however. Anytime he or Max Scherzer take the ball, Washington can expect to beat anybody. And that will always keep the Nats relevant.
