8/27 Game Thread. Joe Ross takes the mound to win series. Span rests back tonight.

The Nats send Joe “Cool” Ross to the mound today to face Andrew Cashner of the San Diego Padres.  The Nats are at the point of the season where almost every game is now must wins to keep pace or draw closer to the NL lead and today is a day to carry momentum forward for the weekend where a win is needed.  With the Nats it starts with pitching, and Joe Ross brings his arsenal of sinker, slider, and changeup to the mound.

By now everyone remembers that Joe Ross was a Padres minor leaguer traded to the Nats and younger brother of Tyson Ross.  Ross was part of the 3-team trade involving the Nats, Padres and Rays for Souza, Wil Myers, Joe Ross and Trea Turner as the main parts.
