The Nats are just on a rampage. Last Wednesday, they scored 17 against Cincinnati, had Thursday off, won a 2–1 game on Friday, and then combined to score 30 runs on Saturday and Sunday against the Brewers (they just went 1–1).
Then, they pounded the Pirates, 13–0, in Monday’s series opener. Trae Turner had two hits and three RBIs from the leadoff spot and Asdrubal Cabrera and Matt Adams drove in nine hitting fifth and sixth in the lineup. Juan Soto went 4-for-4 with a walk and scored four times.
Joe Ross was rolling into the fourth inning, when the took a comebacker off the leg and had to depart, up 11–0. X-Rays were negative and all’s for hoping he doesn’t miss any time and comes back in the same form he was in before he was hit.
Washington will continue to play it safe with Max Scherzer, who says he’s ready to pitch. They have already lined up Stephen Strasburg and Patrick Corbin for the next two games in this series. With those two, Ross, Erick Fedde, and Anibal Sanchez pitching just fine, there really isn’t any rush to get Scherzer back.
Even once Ross departed, the Pirates’ offense didn’t show many signs of life against Washington’s suspect bullpen.
Javy Guerra went through the seventh and a pair of Nats’ relievers split the final two innings. In total, Pittsburgh mustered one hit against the ‘pen over the final 5.2 innings of the game.
Joe Musgrove pitched into the eighth inning for just the second time all season in his last start against the Cubs. He gave up four hits, two runs, and struck out nine, though he didn’t get the win in what eventually amounted to a 3–2 win for the Pirates.

Free Washington Nationals vs. Pittsburgh Pirates MLB Prediction: Corbin.
He should be great again because he turns Josh Bell around to his weaker side and should keep Brian Reynolds at bay. I’m playing the Nats up to -150
