Game #121 MacK gets a key start

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.

“[Josiah Gray’s] fastball as to be better. He has to keep the ball down in the zone. Pound the strike zone.

— manager Dave Martinez said

The Nats starting pitchers have a combined ERA of 4.84 for 25th best in MLB.

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
