Nationals Vs. Brewers: Tom Gorzelanny Looks To Stop Washington's Skid

The Washington Nationals will look to get back on track when they take on the Milwaukee Brewers in Milwaukee on Monday night. Washington has lost four of their past five games, with the lone win being a 17-5 blowout victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Friday night. Washington fell, 2-1, to the Orioles on Sunday after a late home run by Vladimir Guerrero provided the winning margin.

Tom Gorzelanny taken the hill for the Nationals looking to improve on his 2-3 record. Gorzelanny has pitched well this season, but like many Nationals pitchers, he has been victimized by poor run support. That's what happened in his last start, a 3-0 loss to the Mets.

Milwaukee, meanwhile, is on a roll, having swept the Colorado Rockies over the weekend. The Brewers have won 11 of 15 after a seven-game losing streak earlier in the season, and will send Yovani Gallardo to the mount looking to improve on his 5-2 record.

Here's the Nationals' lineup.

 

  1. Roger Bernadina (CF)
  2. Ian Desmond (SS)
  3. Jayson Werth (RF)
  4. Laynce Nix (LF)
  5. Wilson Ramos (C)
  6. Michael Morse (1B)
  7. Danny Espinosa (2B)
  8. Jerry Hairston Jr. (3B)
  9. Tom Gorzelanny (P)
