The Washington Nationals are back on the road, and woke up today in Kansas City, Missouri for a weekend series against the Royals. Tonight, it is Patrick Corbin on the mound with the hopes of getting back in the win column.
There is no telling how manager Dave Martinez will set up his bullpen for tonight. The hope, of course, is that Corbin can be effective and pitch efficient, and go deep in this game.
For the Royals, they have Jordan Lyles, a right-hander getting the start in this one. Martinez will counter with Corey Dickerson in left field as the team tries to stack a few more lefty batters.
The Nats starters have a combined ERA of 4.41 for 16th best in MLB as they just moved behind the Yankees by 0.04.
Here is how they rank:
No. 5 Starter: Jake Irvin 5.32 ERA
No. 4 Starter: Patrick Corbin 4.47
No. 3 Starter: Trevor Williams 4.32
No. 2 Starter: MacKenzie Gore 3.88
No. 1 Starter: Josiah Gray 2.65
