Today the Nationals play their final game before the All-Star break with a chance to take two of three against the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park. Tanner Roark (7-6, 3.12) will take the mound after skipping his previous start due to last Tuesday’s postponement.
Roark last pitched on July 4, a stretch of nine days. He’ll go up against a Phillies team against which he has little experience and little success. In two outings – one of them a start – Roark has allowed seven earned runs and two homers in six innings.
Kyle Kendrick (4-8, 4.46) will pitch for Philly and make his 24th career start against Washington. Including two relief appearances vs. the franchise, Kendrick is 5-9 with a 4.86 ERA against the Nats.
Mark is off to Minnesota for the All-Star Game, so please check back in the morning for analysis. Thanks and enjoy the game…
