Game #125 Little League Classic game

The Washington Nationals were honored to be chosen to play in the sixth annual Little League Classic game in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. They will play on national TV on ESPN with a lot of pride on the line, and if Trevor Williams can step up and deliver a gem for his team — the Nats can win this series and show the world that they are indeed on the upswing as a team!

All Williams has to do is follow the lead of rookie Jake Irvin who threw a 6.0 inning scoreless gem yesterday. With a day-off tomorrow, expect all hands available for this one — plus an extra set of hands as the Nats can expand the roster to 27 players for this game.

The team will add a 27th man to the roster as well as they optioned Cory Abbott back to the minors after his meltdown on the mound yesterday with 8-earnies in one inning of work.

“They don’t quit, and they play hard.

— manager Dave Martinez said

The Nats starting pitchers have a combined ERA of 4.77 for 23rd best in MLB.

Here is how they rank:

No. 6 Starter: Joan Adon 7.62 (starter’s ERA only)
No. 5 Starter: Trevor Williams 5.20
No. 4 Starter: Patrick Corbin 4.71
No. 3 Starter: Jake Irvin 4.47
No. 2 Starter: MacKenzie Gore 4.38
No. 1 Starter: Josiah Gray 3.96
