The Washington Nationals had it all set up for their third walk-off in a row but they just came up short in a one-run loss. That happens as we know. Josiah Gray took the blame for three bad starts in a row but said he is not going to over-think it. Yes, today is a new day.
The ball gets handed to MacKenzie Gore, and he will get a chance to start on two days of extra rest. He has to step up especially after the bullpen was worked hard last night in Gray’s short start.
Here is how they rank:
No. 6 Starter: Trevor Williams 5.20
No. 5 Starter: Joan Adon 5.00 (starter’s ERA only)
No. 4 Starter: Patrick Corbin 4.85
No. 3 Starter: Jake Irvin 4.76
No. 2 Starter: MacKenzie Gore 4.62
No. 1 Starter: Josiah Gray 3.96
