The Nationals are in the midst of an uncommon stretch, a streak more unbelievable than you probably realize. According to ESPN’s research, the Nationals are the third team since 1900 to win six consecutive games while scoring at least five runs and holding their opponent to two or less. In their six-game winning streak, the Nationals have outscored opponents 40-12. They’ll try to keep it going tonight behind Ross Detwiler and against Mike Fiers, a funky right-hander. Talk about the game right here.
