Game 4 discussion thread: Nationals at Marlins

In three games, they collectively slapped up a 2.60 ERA, which ranks seventh in the majors. (The Pirates, at 2.55, are sixth … so, yes, again, don’t ready too much into this stuff.) Their starters have walked four batters in 17 1/3 innings, the ninth best rate in the majors. They have struck out eight, or 4.15 per nine, which is 26th in the majors, which probably is representative. Their 2.00 strikeout-to-walk rate ranks 19th, which seems about right.

Marquis’s health and effectiveness will be crucial to the success of the Nationals’ starting rotation. Talk about it right here.
