The Washington Nationals have only missed Sandy Alcantara once this season in their series matchups with the Miami Marlins. Today will be the fifth and final time for 2022 that the Nats will have to face the Cy Young hopeful.
Alcantara’s dominance this season against the Nats starts with the 3-0 record, 0.84 ERA and a WHIP of 0.844. The only way to beat Alcantara is that your own pitcher has to put up zeroes and hope you score against the Marlins bullpen. Erick Fedde gets this unfavorable matchup tonight for the Nats and he must put up zeroes.
Manager Dave Martinez has Ildemaro Vargas back at third base for this game after Cesar Hernandez struggled to make some defensive plays.
