Game #116 Looking for a split

The Washington Nationals have a rested back of the bullpen as they have only pitched one game in the past three days, and the hope is that manager Dave Martinez will need his high leverage bullpen to seal a win in the final game of this 4-game series in Philadelphia.

The ball will go to Patrick Corbin who is looking for a bounceback win, and the Nats offense hopes to get something going against Aaron Nola.

“We hit balls hard up the middle — but they were caught.”

— manager Dave Martinez said

The Nats starting pitchers have a combined ERA of 4.80 for 25th best in MLB.

Here is how they rank:

No. 5 Starter: Patrick Corbin 5.03
No. 4 Starter: Jake Irvin 5.00
No. 3 Starter: Trevor Williams 4.72
No. 2 Starter: MacKenzie Gore 4.62
No. 1 Starter: Josiah Gray 3.69
