Nationals Vs. Blue Jays: Washington Looks To Win 5 In A Row

After winning game one of the series on Monday, the Washington Nationals will attempt to win their fifth game in a row as they take on the host Toronto Blue Jays. The Nationals (36-23) have a three-game lead atop the National League East, while the Blue Jays (31-30) are in fourth in the American League East.

Chien-Ming Wang (1-2, 5.11 ERA) takes the mound for Washington, and he'll be facing off against Henderson Alvarez (3-5, 3.76 ERA) of Toronto. Wang, the weakest link in the Nationals rotation this year, has a 7.18 ERA in his last five starts against the Blue Jays. Alvarez has not won a starting decision since May 10.

The game is scheduled to begin 7:07 p.m. It will be televised on MASN.
