Game 14 discussion thread: Nationals vs. Brewers

Today, April 17, Marquis will face the Brewers again in his third start of the season. Marquis spent his first two starts allaying concerns that his implosion last year owed to anything other the bone chips in his right elbow, which he eventually had removed. Marquis has allowed five earned runs in 12 1/3 innings over his first two starts, pitching at least six innings in both of them. Against the Mets, he struck out nine batters for the third time in his 246 career starts.

By winning Game 1 today, the Nationals can ensure a series victory and at least a .500 homestand while evening their overall record at 7-7. They’ll have to beat Yovani Gallardo, one of the most electric young starters in baseball. He’s allowed six earned runs in 20 innings and is making his fourth start of the season.
