The Nationals will try to win their third series of the season today, with Tom Gorzelanny facing Kyle Lohse. Gorzelanny, having previously pitched for the Cubs and Pirates, both NL Central teams, has quite a bit of history with the Cardinals. He’s made eight starts against them, and he’s got a 4.98 ERA with 26 walks and 24 strikeouts in 47 innings.
The Nationals, with a win, can run their road record to 5-4 for the season, a significant step in the right direction toward remedying a major issue last season. In 2010, the Nationals went 28-53 on the road, fourth-worst in the majors.
As always, talk about the game right here.
