Game 43: Nats Rally Again to Sweep the O's
May 23, 2021

The Nationals held off the Orioles 6-5 to complete the three game sweep.  Al & Mark look at how they overcame another disastrous top of the 1st with a heavy dose of early offense.  They then put in perspective the recent hot streak for the previously maligned duo of Josh Bell & Kyle Schwarber.

(12:21) Juan Soto did not run out a pop up with two outs that unexpectedly landed in fair territory and cost Washington a run.  Mark gives his take on Davey Martinez admonishing his star player afterwards. Did Martinez handle this situation appropriately?

(18:16) There was some confusion pregame regarding Victor Robles' status that resulted in him going on the IL due to a right sprained ankle.  Al wonders, what exactly happened and did the Nats botch the situation?

(24:25) Patrick Corbin had another poor start as his ERA is north of six. What to make of his recent backside?  Plus, a critical analysis of the decision for Corbin to hit for himself with the bases loaded in the 5th.
