This is a great image that the Nats graphic department made.
The Brewers send to the mound RHP Jimmy Nelson. The tall 6’6″ righty has a 3.61 ERA and he will be making his 38th career start. On the road, Nelson has large splits carrying a higher 3.95 ERA and batters hit him for 63 higher points on the top line batting average.
Jimmy Nelson has faced the Nats once before on 6/13/15 and Bryce went 2-2 against him, Yuni and Ramos both went 2-3 and each had a HR, Rendon was 1-2 with a walk and a HBP, Espi and MAT both went 1-3. Desi was HBP’d with no hits and DSpan started that game and went 1 for 5.
No sleep, no matter, the Nats are having fun in the locker room. Who is the player in the middle?
