Just when the Nats were getting some momentum, they dropped a stinker at home to the Marlins and missed the chance to get a sweep.
JT Realmuto had four hits and it wasn’t until the ninth inning that Miami hit one for extra bases. Nineteen singles before then were more than enough, though. Tanner Roark continued his struggles in the loss.
There just seems to be something off with this team. The Nationals will pile runs on in big wins but then come back the next day and look totally uninterested. It feels like it has to be something going on with the guys in the clubhouse.
Jeremy Hellickson started that game against the Marlins that the Nats came back from a 9–0 deficit. He wasn’t good in that one but this will be his first chance against Pittsburgh this season.
Pittsburgh snapped a five-game losing streak with a win over Philadelphia on Sunday. That win kept Philly out of sole-possession of first place in the NL East and kept Washington just five games back, as Atlanta lost too.
Francisco Cervelli is approaching 200 at-bats this season and he leads the Pirates with a 140 OPS+. He only has nine homers so his power isn’t the driving force behind that big number, but 32 walks to only 45 strikeouts is certainly a rarity in today’s game.
Aside from Cervelli, all three of Pittsburgh’s outfielders are above average in OPS. Corey Dickerson, Starling Marte and Gregory Polanco are all between 113 and 117 OPS+.
The disappointing member of the offense has to be Josh Bell, who has just five home runs after putting up 26 last season as a rookie. Look for him to get hot sometime in the second half.
