The Nationals open a three-game series in Seattle on Friday against Mariners ace Felix Hernandez, who is 13-4 with a 2.22 ERA and .885 WHIP this season. It will be Washington’s first matchup with the 2010 American League Cy Young winner.

The Nationals are plenty familiar with the ace they’ll see on the second leg of their trip — two-time National League Cy Young winner Clayton Kershaw. The Los Angeles Dodgers lefty is 6-2 with a 2.79 ERA in 10 career games against the Nationals.

Hernandez will mark the 24th Cy Young-winning pitcher to face the Nationals since they arrived in D.C. in 2005. Here’s a look at how the previous 23 have fared.
