Today’s Top Story: The Washington Nationals Losing Streak is now at Five

Once again we are writing about another Washington Nationals loss. This time it was at the hands of the Atlanta Braves. 

Even though Josh Bell and even Joe Ross helped the Nationals climb back to within one run of the Braves with a two run homerun and an RBI respectively the Washington Nationals weren’t able to complete their comeback and lost to the Braves 5-3 making their record 21-28 and putting them six games behind the first place Atlanta Braves in the NL East. Currently the Nationals are 8-13 when they are playing away from Nationals Park. 

With a 5.73 ERA, .270/.365/.427 line against, and an (0-3) record in five starts and 22 IP to this point in May, Joe Ross took the mound last night in Atlanta looking to avoid going winless on the month, and he was coming off a solid if short outing this weekend due to rain. 

Joe Ross’s Line: 5.0 IP, 3 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 3 BB, 7 Ks, 1 HR, 87 P, 56 S, 3/4 GO/FO.

Just a quick note, this time last month, the Washington Nationals were in first place in the NL East. Over the last ten games the Nationals have gone 4-6. The Nationals now have a 4.6% chance of making the postseason and less than <0.1% to win the World Series… So there is some hope for Washington Nationals fans!
