Washington split with the Cubs this week and remain 15 games over .500. But the Nats were 12 games over on May 6 so they’ve only been a little better than a win-loss ball club for the last two months.
Of course, the lead in the NL East is 9.5 games but it might not be quite as good as it looks for Washington. It got worse last night when Pedro Strop’s fastball broke Trea Turner’s wrist.
Turner is the Nationals’ second leadoff man to go down now after Adam Eaton tore up his knee back in April. Turner had stolen his 35th base earlier in the game and was hitting .280.
The Nats still have some firepower but no Jayson Werth, Eaton or Turner hurts. The starting pitching has to pick up some slack and Tanner Roark would be a great candidate to step up.
He’s really struggled since posting a 3.86 ERA in the first two months of the season. Now it’s 5.15 at the end of June.
St. Louis Cardinals
St. Louis was a blown save in game one away from sweeping the Diamondbacks on their own diamond.
Lance Lynn notched a quality save for his sixth win last night. He left the game right as the Cardinals’ bats broke out. St. Louis scored three in the seventh and five in the eighth to win 10-4.
Mike Leake gets things started on Friday. He, Lynn and Carlos Martinez are an overlooked trio in today’s world of big three’s. Leak has a 3.12 ERA with a WHIP close to 1.00.
Even so, he’s just 5-6 and is 0-4 since the end of May.

Free Washington Nationals vs. St. Louis Cardinals MLB Prediction: it’s going to be a pitcher’s duel.
I like Roark’s chances to turn things around against St. Louis and Washington’s lineup just isn’t nearly as scary without table-setters in front of Harper and Zim.
