Game #99 has a chance for the elusive sweep with some Crews magic

The Washington Nationals already had the CJ Abrams bobblehead night set before the 2023 season, and little did they know he would hit his 10th home run in that game and that the team would officially introduce their first round top prospect, Dylan Crews, at the same time. While Abrams was talking on top of the dugout to a group of about five hundred season ticket holders, they were certainly looking over Abrams’ shoulders at what Crews was doing during his first batting practice with the Nats.

On the mound this afternoon in this season finale against the San Francisco Giants is the Nats’ lefty, MacKenzie Gore, as his team will go for their first three game sweep in over two years, June 14-16. Is there a Crews in D.C. effect on this team?

“Other relievers are going to have to step up.

— manager Dave Martinez said

The Nats starting pitchers have a combined ERA of 4.61 for 19th best in MLB. The Nats are within 8 points of leapfrogging the Orioles and Dodgers, two potential playoff teams.

Here is how they rank:

No. 5 Starter: Patrick Corbin 4.89
No. 4 Starter: Jake Irvin 4.87
No. 3 Starter: MacKenzie Gore 4.59
No. 2 Starter: Trevor Williams 4.38
No. 1 Starter: Josiah Gray 3.45
