Game 2 of 4: Tuesday, June 26, 8:40 EDT, Coors Field
After a night when the offense struggled mightily once again and not even Stephen Strasburg could will the Nats into the W column, the Nationals send their 1A stopper Gio Gonzalez (9-3, 2.55 ERA) to the mound to face Christian Friedrich (4-4, 5.65 ERA).
Game 2 of 3: Saturday, June 16, 1:05 EDT, Nationals Park
Last night wasn't a great showing for the Nationals, as Gio didn't pitch all that well but kept us in the game, and ultimately a lack of offense and a very poor showing by Lidge sealed the deal for the Yankees. Today, the Nats send Jordan Zimmermann (3-5, 2.91 ERA) to the mound to face off against Andy Pettitte (3-2, 2.81 ERA).
Game 1 of 3: Friday, June 15, 7:05 EDT, Nationals Park
After sweeping the six-game interleague road trip at Boston and Toronto, the Nats are back home tonight to face the first place New York Yankees. The Nationals send Gio Gonzalez (8-2, 2.35 ERA) to face Phil Hughes (6-5, 4.76 ERA).
Game 2 of 3: Tuesday, June 12, 7:07 PM
Last night the Nats received a stellar outing from Edwin Jackson and the offense got to tee off on the Toronto bullpen to the tune of six runs on 14 hits after Brandon Morrow left the game in the first having only thrown nine pitches. Tonight the Nationals send Chien-Ming Wang (1-2, 5.11 ERA) to the mound to square off against Henderson Alvarez (3-5, 3.76 ERA).
Game 3 of 3: Sunday, June 10, 1:35 EDT, Fenway Park
Sorry for the lack of a preview yesterday, I was overcome by events. Yesterday turned out to be another great day for the Nationals as Gio dominated for his 8th win and Clippard secured his 7th save as well as another series win for the Nats. With a chance to sweep the Red Sox in Fenway, the Nats send Jordan Zimmermann (3-5, 2.82 ERA) to face Jon Lester (3-4, 4.64 ERA).
Game 2 of 3: Wednesday, June 6, 7:05 EDT, Nationals Park
Last night was a long and wild evening in which both teams used every man in their bullpen, the Mets used every bench bat they had and the Nats eventually won, after three comebacks, on a Bryce Harper walkoff single. Both teams will be looking for deep outings from their starters tonight as the Nats send Edwin Jackson (1-3, 3.17 ERA) to face Mets rookie Jeremy Hefner (1-2, 5.60 ERA).
