The Nationals are not losing focus on the season, despite holding a 14 game lead over the Miami Marlins in the NL East. Washington has won three of their last four games including a series win against the Padres in San Diego over the weekend.
Tanner Roark (9-8, 4.70 ERA) will be making his first start of the year against the Astros. Roark has been good over his last three starts.
He is 1-1 with a 3.26 ERA in those starts, but has been rattled at home this year.
Roark is 3-6 with a 5.11 ERA at home this season.
Houston has not been as consistent as they have been all season. The Astros struggled in a three game series against the Athletics at home and most recently lost to them Sunday, 3-2.
Houston leads the majors in basically every offensive category this year. Now, some would say Houston is no longer the favorite to represent the American league in the World Series.
Charlie Morton (10-5, 3.69 ERA) makes his first start of the year against the Nationals. He looks stay as solid as he has been over his last three outings.
Morton is is 1-1 with a 3.32 ERA over his last three starts. A lot better that what the Astros have been getting from the staring staff lately.
