With a day off on Thursday and Max Scherzer going Friday, Washington’s bullpen figures to be well-rested for Saturday’s game.
But Tanner Roark has been a work-horse just for the last several seasons and 2018 has been no exception. He’s failed to go at least six innings just once in nine starts this season and he’s thrown into or through the seventh inning six times, including all three of his starts this month.
It’s the great advantage Washington has in what’s shaping up to be a three-team race in the NL East this season. It has tremendous starting pitching that has proven durable and consistent for more than just a season or two now.
But all of these guys, from Scherzer to Gonzalez to Strasburg to Roark, have logged lots of innings over their careers and I’m wondering when the first will go down, then the second, then the third.
The Nationals will only win the division if they stay relatively healthy for another year, which so far they have. Even if they do, it will be a challenge to contend with the Braves and Phillies’ youth and excitement.
You may have noticed I didn’t mention the Marlins, who will finish in last-place for yet another season.
The Fish are 14–16 in their last 30, though, after starting miserably.
Don Mattingly will send Wei-Yin Chen to the mound after he pitched admirably in his most recent start against Atlanta, going into the sixth inning and only allowing five hits and two runs, walking two and striking out five.
That was the game when Atlanta scored two in the sixth, two in the seventh and six in the ninth to come back and win, 10–9. It wasn’t Chen’s fault, however. He put his team in a good position to beat a good team, which is his job again in this game.

Free Washington Nationals vs. Miami Marlins MLB Prediction: Miami.
I’m not typically fond of backing Roark. There isn’t anything special I like about Miami other than that it’s at home and Chen looked good last weekend. Plus, it’s going to be an underdog.
