The Nationals continue their youth movement with the flamethrower Reynaldo Lopez as tonight’s starter to face Kevin Gausman in this 2nd game of the four game road/home series with the Baltimore Orioles.
The Nationals hope to get back to their winning ways as they have now dropped two consecutive games in which they have lost by one run.
The Nationals lead is now 8.0 games in the NL East as the Nationals are now 22 games above .500, and the Orioles are currently in tight race in the AL East where they are in 3rd place.
The Baltimore Sun and the Washington Post had very different views on the series.
