Game 157: Gray Earns His 2nd Straight Win
Show Notes

The Nats beat Colorado 5-4 as Josiah Gray has been victorious in back to back starts. Al & Mark discuss Gray's outing, which was scoreless through the first five innings. What led to him becoming ineffective though in the 6th?  Was it hustling down the line on a bunt or was it facing the Rockies lineup for a third time?

(10:08) The Nationals bullpen had a good night as they only allowed one run.  Davey Martinez changed it up a bit as Kyle Finnegan pitched the 8th and Tanner Rainey took over for the save.  What should we read into this move?

(16:03) Alcides Escobar paced the offense with three hits and a crucial insurance RBI in the 9th. We also give our daily Juan Soto update as he currently trails Trea Turner by one point for the NL Batting Crown.

(24:57) Luis Garcia had a crucial 2 run single, but made a brutal throwing error in the 5th.  Was it lack of concentration that affected what should have been a routine throw?

(32:43) Patrick Corbin will make possibly the final start of his turbulent season on Tuesday night in Denver. How different would he have been handled if Washington were in the divisional race?
