Game 57 discussion thread: Nationals at DBacks

To do, Yunesky Maya will have to start a game the Nationals win for the first time – they’ve lost all six times he’s pitched, dating to last season. In his first start this year, Maya allowed four earned runs on six hits and two walks in 4 2/3 innings against the Padres.

This might be Maya’s last chance to make an impression in the majors for a while. Manager Jim Riggleman said today Tom Gorzelanny should be able to come off the disabled list the first day he is eligible, which is June 8. That’s also the next time Maya would come up in the rotation.

The Nationals will have a difficult, and interesting, task in facing rookie right-hander Josh Collmenter, who is 3-1 with a 1.49 this year. Collmenter has a funky, straight-over-the-top delivery, and facing him for the first time should be a challenge.

As always, talk about the game right here.
