The Nationals will look to rebound from Friday’s loss and near-comeback, and they will turn to one of their most consistent starters, Tanner Roark (11-7, 2.94 ERA). Almost a year to the day, Roark made his major league debut at Turner Field. He is 18-8 with a 2.54 ERA (36 games, 27 of them starts) since then. He will be opposed by Aaron Harang (9-6, 3.41 ERA).
