Nationals vs. Astros discussion tread: Game 14

April 19, 2012

The Washington Nationals send right-hander Edwin Jackson to the mound against the Houston Astros as they seek their first four-game sweep at home since 2005.

Jackson (1-0, 2.57 ERA) is coming off a two-hitter in a 4-1 victory over Cincinnati on Saturday in which he needed just 92 pitches. He became the fourth Nationals pitcher to record a complete-game victory while throwing fewer than 100 pitches.

The Astros, meantime, counter with right-hander Bud Norris, who is 0-0 with a 3.46 ERA this season.
