Game #41 Nats need the good pitching to align with the good hitting!

The feast and famine continues for this team as they were shutout again, and this team is one of the better teams on advanced offensive stats, especially when they are winning. The Washington Nationals have scored an average of 7.7 runs per games in wins contrasted to just 2.1 runs per game in losses. 

Two big names are on the mound tonight, and both starters have been struggling. Both Brandon Woodruff and Patrick Corbin have ERAs north of 5.00. If there is any good news, Corbin has been trending better lately.

Tonight also marks the four-year anniversary of Juan Soto‘s first career start and first home run of his career when he victimized Robbie Erlin of the Padres.

In a reversal of what looked to be Corbin with Riley Adams as his personal catcher, Keibert Ruiz will get the start tonight. Victor Robles will be on the bench, and Yadiel Hernandez will start in left field.
