Washington won its third game in a row on Saturday. Mark Reynolds hit two homers and drove in 10 in the 18–4 win.
It was tied 3–3 in the fifth inning before the Nats started pounding the ball, which they have been doing ever since a players-only meeting following a sweep at home against the Red Sox.
It’s unclear who will start this game for Washington, though it won’t be Stephen Strasburg, who has a rehab start scheduled for Tuesday night in Virginia. You have to think he’s going to be ready to go following the all-star break, if he isn’t back just before.
The Nats are starting to make their move, down five games to both the Phils and Braves in the NL East.
Pittsburgh has won just 10 of its last 30 games and is on a slide that has lasted longer than that after a surprisingly good start.
I couldn’t figure out how the Pirates were winning so many games in the early going. A friend of mine who is also a Pirates fan explained it very simply the other night: they were playing a lot of bad teams.
Well, Washington has looked bad at times this season but it doesn’t look that way now. This is a huge opportunity for the Nats to keep their winning run going on the road.
