As we wrote in the preview, would Tanner Roark be able to bounceback after a rough start? The answer was unfortunately was “no”. Roark was hit with 7 earned runs, and his ERA ballooned to 4.73. In the bullpen, both Blake Treinen and Enny Romero gave up earned runs.
The Nats worked back to a 4-4 tie in the game, but Roark could not keep the game tied. Roark gave up 4 walks and 8 hits over just 5.0 innings. Dusty Baker said after the game he doesn’t think Roark is hurt.
