The Nationals have still won five of seven games after their 4-3, 11-inning loss last night. Their season could look much different if they had played better and caught more breaks at the end of such games. They’ve lost six one-run games in a row and six straight extra-inning games. For a team with a strong bullpen, that’s odd. Jordan Zimmermann will take his 0.68 career ERA in Petco Park to the mound against lefty Eric Stults. Talk about the game right here.
