Nationals Looking To Remain Perfect Since All-Star Break

The all-star break did nothing to slow the Washington Nationals’ momentum, as the club has come out of the break with five consecutive wins. The Nats have outscored their opponents 39-15 in that span despite each outing being on the road. Ryan Zimmerman and company look to continue rolling when they close up a two-game set with the Los Angeles Angels on Wednesday.

Shark Bites
  • Bryce Harper (rest) is not expected to play in this game.
  • The Nationals are 14-2 SU in their last 16 games as road favorites.
  • The Angels are 5-2 SU in their last 7 games against the Nationals.

Gio Gonzalez will take the bump in this one in hopes of replicating his masterful last outing. Gonzalez allowed just four hits and no runs in 8.1 innings of work against Cincinnati last Friday and lowered his ERA to a stellar 2.66. The lefty might be the second-best pitcher in a loaded Nats rotation with Gonzalez allowing three or fewer earned runs in his past 10 starts.

The Angels are going another route with their starting pitching in this one by recalling Alex Meyer from Triple-A Salt Lake. The former first-round pick played one game in Triple-A since being demoted just before the all-star break, an outing that saw Meyer allow four runs in 5.0 innings while striking out seven.
