Game #120 The second game in the series; Max is also a road warrior!

With all of the time spent talking about road and home splits, it is hard to believe that Max Scherzer is even better on the road (1.79 ERA) than he is pitching at Nats Park. Tonight’s matchup will feature Max Scherzer going up against Luis Perdomo of the San Diego Padres.

This is the second game in this four game series in San Diego’s Petco Park. The Nationals won last night’s game in a pitcher’s duel that featured a lot of small ball and one long ball by Ryan Zimmerman.

The Nationals have a lot of players who could use another day off. It is the dog days of summer, but there is a day off coming on Monday for the Nationals players with a scheduled day off.

We have also updated “The Firm” statistics and have included Matt Alber‘s stats in the graphic but not in the totals. Brandon Kintzler, Ryan Madson and Sean Doolittle‘s stats are all in included in the totals.

All of the Nationals players with a history against Perdomo have hit the right-handed pitcher well except for Wilmer Difo and Daniel Murphy in the small sample sizes.
