Of those 15 wins recent, they have scored two runs in six. They may have to squeak out another low-scoring game against Mariners rookie right-hander Michael Pineda, who in his first 14 career games is 7-4 with a 2.64 ERA. Pineda throws in the mid-to-high 90s and strikes an imposing figure on the mound.

The Nationals will counter with Jason Marquis, who leads the Nats with seven wins but allowed 12 hits in a no-decision his last start. As always, talk about the game righ there.
