The Nationals schedule does not get any easier for the team that 14-25 as they must face the Tampa Bay Rays tonight. They have the best record in the American League. To add to the Nats woes, they have Juan Soto still out with a sore elbow, Luis Garcia is out with a sore heel, Asdrubal Cabrera out with a sore back, and reliever Dakota Bacus was put on the 10-day IL and most likely finished for the season with a strained flexor tendon.
For the Nats, they have Max Scherzer on the mound, and the Marlins go with Charlie Morton who is the 36 year old picked up last year by the Rays. After a very good 2019, Morton has struggled with a 4.82 ERA and a 1.45 WHIP.
Garcia was just scratched from the lineup which will be redone.
