The Nationals need a victory to avoid getting swept and their first three-game losing skid since June 27. The Nationals’ rotation has essentially made them immune from losing streaks. Tonight Doug Fister will try to bounce-back from a rare so-so start, a loss in which he allowed four runs in six innings. He’ll face Kyle Kendrick, who is 6-11 with a 4.93 ERA this year.
The game will start later than usual because the Phillies are honoring the Taney Dragons Little League team — the squad led by Mo’Ne Davis — on the field. Talk about the game right here.
