The Washington Nationals traveled to Miami last night for their 4 game series which starts tonight at 7:10pm and matches up Tanner Roark and Jose Fernandez. Both pitchers are coming off good starts after shaky first starts. In fact, Fernandez lost his first start ever at his home park in the Marlins 2nd game of the year.
The Marlins got seemingly blindsided and then swept by the Atlanta Braves who were winless unless they beat the Marlins in 3 straight games over the weekend.
This game begins week 3 of the season for both teams, and with a 4 game series we will see where we are after Thursday’s game.
Here are the Nats stats against Jose Fernandez:
