This second game of the doubleheader will also be a scheduled 7 inning game per the 2020 rules. This game features Wil Crowe for the Nats as the 29th man called up for the doubleheader, and the Braves will pitch Huascar Ynoa. The Nats scratched Juan Soto in the first game due to a sore arm. The Nats officially said it was a sore left elbow, but ESPN said a sore shoulder. So far, there has not been any additional news on Soto’s condition.
With the loss in the first game, the Nats losing streak is at seven games. Austin Voth has lost five of the Nats 24-games this season. The team has lost twice as many games as they have won this year, and it is truly mind-blowing until you see some of the defensive plays as well as the quality of many of the at-bats as well as the starting pitching.
Determining who will be available out of the bullpen is always a difficult choice in doubleheaders. At least the starting pitchers will allow manager Dave Martinez to play platoons in these two game as he went with a more righty dominant lineup in game one against the lefty Tommy Milone, and in this game the Nats face the righty Ynoa.
Like the first game, this second part of the doubleheader will be televised on MASN2 and FOX Sports South. First pitch timing is at 7:20 pm and was set based on the timing of when the first game finished.
