Game #80 in a Washington state finale

The Washington Nationals are 31-48 heading into this 3-game finale in Seattle, Washington. After a great win yesterday in 11-innings that collared Seattle with not one, but two blown saves in the game, the scrappy Nats once again showed their personality in one of their best wins of the season. They will either be at 32-48 or 31-49 after the game. Also, they get their first day-off in 16-days tomorrow. A day of rest that this team has earned.

Today, CJ Abrams and Joey Meneses will not start. Meneses is in a mini-slump and Abrams hurt his elbow after a HBP. On the mound for the Nats is lefty Patrick Corbin who has to rebound after one of his worst starts of the season five days ago.

“They fought. This team is relentless. They don’t give up. They stay focused. They stay in the game, and we come out victorious in the end, which was awesome.

— manager Dave Martinez said yesterday

The Nats starting pitchers have a combined ERA of 4.56 for 20th best in MLB.

Here is how they rank:

No. 5 Starter: Patrick Corbin 5.32
No. 4 Starter: Jake Irvin 4.72
No. 3 Starter: Trevor Williams 4.28
No. 2 Starter: MacKenzie Gore 3.89
No. 1 Starter: Josiah Gray 3.43
