Finally at the 47th game of the season, the Washington Nationals have put together their first winning streak of the season with three in a row. If the Nats can win two of their next three games, they will finish Monday with a 19-31 record at the 50-game mark in the season. Does that give you a sense of déjà vu? It should. But don’t expect the Nats to win 90 games this year with this roster.
This Nats roster and the results will boggle the mind. Victor Robles had three RISP hits in the first game of this doubleheader, and that equals Juan Soto‘s RISP hits for the entire season as he is 3-for-36 with runners in scoring position. Baseball is a streaky game, but it also matters where you hit the ball. Robles proved that today as he hit his first home run in a pulled shot which was actually shorter in distance than Soto’s flyball to the wall in centerfield.
It is Joan Adon‘s turn on the mound, and he has a chance to dominate a team that struggles offensively on the road.
Manager Dave Martinez has two of his best offensive players in the second game of this doubleheader with both Yadiel Hernandez and Keibert Ruiz in the lineup.
