The Nationals will try to end a two-game losing streak, both in extra innings, when they face the Marlins in the second game of this weekend’s three game series.
Washington sends out Livan Hernandez for his eighth start of the season, fifth at home and 34th of his career against the Marlins. Hernandez has won three in a row at Nationals Park and is 3 1/3 innings from 3,000 for his career.
Opposing Hernandez is Anibal Sanchez, whose last start came against the Nationals on Sunday. Sanchez allowed two hits and struck out a season-high 11 in seven innings during a 2-1 victory.
Talk about the game right here, and let’s hope the weather cooperates.
