The Washington Nationals are wrapped up in CitiField and will pack-up and fly to Miami for their first road trip there this season. The Nationals head there with a nice 3 win series in NY after dropping the 4th game today in the finale.
Joe Ross pitched well today but Jacob deGrom was excellent in this game with a 5-1 final score. Joe Ross had 2 earned runs on his record and we will say it again — you will not win many games scoring just one run.
The highlight for the Nationals was 4 stolen bases by Trea Turner which was a National’s record but with the 3 times that Trea was in scoring position, he was stranded each time on the bases. Trea Turner also forced another throwing mistake in the game which was ruled a fielder’s choice. Speed kills.
Trea Turner just set a Washington @Nationals record with 4 stolen bases in one game. #TreaBurner #SpeedTrea-cer pic.twitter.com/hMMCfkyLat

Dusty Baker was able to rest the back of his bullpen which will help in this next series.
