The Nationals had lost both games to Atlanta over the weekend and turned to Anibal Sanchez on Sunday in their last chance to avoid a sweep.
As he has done time and time again this season, Sanchez delivered. He tossed seven innings of three-hit, shutout baseball to lower his ERA to 3.86. He’s one of the 20 best starting pitchers in the league, based on that metric.
So the Nats avoided the sweep, which keeps them a game-and-a-half up on Chicago in the Wild Card and stopped the bleeding before this series begins in St. Louis on Monday.
Stephen Strasburg and Dakota Hudson headline a dandy of a starting pitching matchup on Monday but Patrick Corbin and Miles Mikolas is a pretty good encore.
Heck, Max Scherzer and Adam Wainwright is a sweet veteran matchup in the finale. This should be fun.
St. Louis Cardinals
Lefties are hitting .195 against Corbin on the season with an OPS+ of 40. They’re hitting .228 with an OPS+ of 81 in over 1000 plate appearances over Corbin’s entire career.
As a team, St. Louis hits righties and lefties just about identically this year. Part of the reason is because Mike Shildt has the versatility at his disposal to take away left-on-left matchups.
Tommy Edman will be in there for either Matt Carpenter or Kolten Wong. Edman ranks sixth on the club in Wins Above Replacement despite not even 300 plate appearances on the year.
Dexter Fowler will be swung around to the right side, which isn’t his strong suit. He’s slugging nearly 100 points less as a right-hander than as a lefty.
