Time flies when the schedulers have you finished with a team by May 1. That is the case between the Washington Nationals and the San Francisco Giants. This is the rubber game in this 3-game series. Josiah Gray starts for the Nats and Alex Cobb comes off of the 10-day IL for the Giants.
After this game, the Nats fly to Colorado, and of course they want to take a happy flight to Denver. This early afternoon game in San Francisco will be played under clear skies which has been a rarity for the Nats this season so far.
All MLB teams will have to pare their rosters down by two players to get back to 26 on their roster. Expect the Nats to cut two relievers. One will certainly be a lefty, but don’t be surprised if two lefties are gone in this round of cuts.
