Game #137 Nats need to get back to winning ways!

The Washington Nationals made their two required moves to bring their roster to 28 players for the annual September 1 roster expansion, and Travis Blankenhorn made his impact immediately felt with a game tying home run in the third inning to make it a 3-3 game. The Nats eventually lost in extra innings — a game they seemed to winning with regularity before Stone Garrett broke his leg on August 23. The Nats are a lethargic 4-6 since that point after being 24-14 in the 38 games before that.

The Nats will now turn to Trevor Williams to get the team back on the winning path. Manager Dave Martinez was rightfully critical of some of the plays the Nats did not make last night.

“Our defense, we made some nice plays today. Had some boys hit some home runs. We just couldn’t get enough guys on-base.

— manager Dave Martinez said

The Nats starting pitchers have a combined ERA of 4.70 for 21st best in MLB.

Here is how they rank:

No. 6 Starter: Joan Adon 6.00 (starter’s ERA only)
No. 5 Starter: Patrick Corbin 4.90
No. 4 Starter: Trevor Williams 4.82
No. 3 Starter: Jake Irvin 4.35
