San Diego Padres vs Washington Nationals (By: Mulder)
RHP Strasburg coming from a shaky outing as he allowed 5 runs against the White Sox but no need to panic yet as he pitched terrific this season. He has been bettter than his 3.54 ERA with a 2.87 FIP> 11.14 K/9.
On the road even a better 2.40 FIP> 11.32 K/9 for the hard trowing ACE.
He Had already a solid outing at home against the Pads this season with 2 runs allowed> 1 BB, 9 K.
Bullpen day for the Pads where GB pitcher Perdoma will start. His 45.1 GB% is not as it was and he posted a 4.08 ERA with a 8.66 K/9.
Erlin should follow him for a couple of innings and the Leftie pitched better than his 4.39 ERA with a 10.13 K/9.
However, he has been rocked by the Nats this season: 6.75 ERA. Last season a 13.50 ERA and in 2016 a 13.50 ERA as well against the Nats.
Nats are strong against LHP with a .328 wOBA on the road against Southpaws.
I wanna avoid that terrible Nats bullpen, hence taking the first 5 innings.
