Game #95 Nats coming off of a good win have Corbin on the mound

The Washington Nationals are in Wrigley Field for their second of three games against the Cubs. For the Nats, it is Patrick Corbin fresh off of the paternity list, and he should have a fresh arm after he has not pitched since before the All-Star break on July 9. After midnight tonight, Corbin turns 34 years old.

After Mason Thompson and Kyle Finnegan covered the relief innings last night, manager Dave Martinez said that other relievers are going to need to step up and cover the late innings in the game with Hunter Harvey on the 15-day IL.

“Other relievers are going to have to step up.

— manager Dave Martinez said

The Nats starting pitchers have a combined ERA of 4.67 for 23rd best in MLB.

Here is how they rank:

No. 5 Starter: Jake Irvin 4.96
No. 4 Starter: Patrick Corbin 4.89
No. 3 Starter: MacKenzie Gore 4.59
No. 2 Starter: Trevor Williams 4.42
No. 1 Starter: Josiah Gray 3.59
