With youth comes mistakes, and you must learn by them. And in this case you must win with them. The youngsters must step up if the Washington Nationals have any chance of winning any more games this season. Even with Juan Soto‘s big game yesterday, it was not enough. The Nats are a season’s worst 55-77 entering this game with 30 left to play. If they cannot win eight more games, it will be a 100 loss season. Think about that for a moment.
The Nats have lefty Sean Nolin on the mound tonight for the start of this 5-game series that includes a doubleheader on Saturday, and a wrap-around game on Labor Day.
For the Mets, they are going with a lefty of their own, Rich Hill, in this one. The Nats have seen him plenty. We will see if manager Dave Martinez goes with Josh Bell in leftfield again with Ryan Zimmerman at first base.
Also, will there be any roster moves made today?
