Series Preview: Rays @ Nationals

DC Sports Nexus ---- Monday, June 18, 2012

After a brutal series against the red hot Yankees, the Nationals look to rebound during a three game match up against the Tampa Bay Rays.  Here is how things stack up:
  • Tuesday: 7:05 PM, Price (8-4) vs Wang (2-2).
  • Wednesday: 7:05 PM, Hellickson (4-3) vs Strasburg (8-1).
  • Thursday: 7:05 PM, Moore (4-5) vs Gonzalez (8-3).
Wang has the tough task of stopping the losing skid against David Price, who has been solid all season.  Luckily, we have Stras and Gio going Wednesday and Thursday, which will almost certainly get the Nats back on the winning track.  Game of the series is going to be Wednesday where you can  be sure Strasburg will be out to deliver another fantastic performance.

And Eva Longoria had a setback on the set of Desperate Housewives and he won't be playing in the series.

Sound of the series:  The Black Keys return to the nexus for this week.  The Nationals are dealing with being swept, instead of doing the sweeping.  Bryce Harper struck out everytime he was up last game.  These are Strange Times in DC to say the least.

Prediction Time:
Putting my reputation as a "baseball guy" on the line by predicting the outcomes of each series.  Feel free to yell at me in the comments or on twitter @dru90. 
  • Nationals LOSE Tuesday
  • Nationals WIN Wednesday
  • Nationals WIN Thursday
Nationals WIN the series 2-1.
