Baltimore Orioles at Washington Nationals

  1. The Washington Nationals have won five straight against the Baltimore Orioles. The longest win streak by either team in this series is six by the O's over the Nats in 2015 and 2016. Bryce Harper homered twice in Baltimore this season, outscoring the entire O's team, 3-2, over three games.
  2. The Nats have lost four straight full games -- they finished the last three innings of a suspended game with Yankees, getting the win -- after being swept by the Blue Jays and losing a makeup game with the Yankees. This is the Nationals third losing streak of four or more games this season; they only had two such streaks last season.
  3. The Orioles halted a nine-game losing streak by winning the getaway game against the Marlins, scoring double-digit runs for just the third time this season.
  4. David Hess has four quality starts in six career starts, including one against the Nationals in which he allowed a single run over six innings in a head-to-head matchup with Max Scherzer. Hess has yet to strike out five or more batters in a game.
  5. Manny Machado has not had an extra-base hit in eleven consecutive games. The longest such streak of his career is thirteen games which spanned the end of the 2013 season and beginning of the 2014 season. He has slashed .333/.389/.576 against the Nats in his career.
  6. Daniel Murphy is slashing .136/.174/.182 in his six games back from injury. He has recorded at least one RBI in 12 of 16 career games (18 total RBI) against the Orioles.

WASHINGTON -- The Washington Nationals welcome the Baltimore Orioles to town for a three-game series Tuesday and welcome reliever Kelvin Herrera to an already formidable bullpen.

The Nationals struck far in advance of the trade deadline Monday, acquiring the Kansas City Royals' closer for three minor leaguers. Herrera is 14-for-16 in save opportunities this year with a 1.05 ERA.

The 28-year-old right-hander joins a late-inning group that includes set-up men Ryan Madson, 38, Brandon Kintzler, 33, and closer Sean Doolittle, 31.

"For the front office to send a message to us this far ahead of the deadline, to try to get us some help in the bullpen, I think it's one of those situations where in April and May, the bullpen as a whole had a really heavy workload," Doolittle told the Washington Post. "You saw Madson and Kintzler land on the DL because of that. It's almost their way of saying, 'Here's some help. Here's some reinforcements.'"

Madson allowed two home runs in Sunday's loss to Toronto and Kintzler is out with a right forearm flexor strain.

Doolittle picked up the save Monday against the Yankees in the completion of a suspended game and has succeeded in 19 of 20 chances, posting a 1.37 ERA.

"For me, we have an all-star closer right now," manager Dave Martinez said. "So (Herrera) will be asked to do some different things."

On Monday, the Nationals and Yankees finally completed their two-game series from May 15-16, splitting the two games.

Washington (38-32) won the suspended game, which resumed in the sixth-inning with score tied 3-3. Rookie Juan Soto, who had not yet made his major league debut when the game originally began in May, clubbed a two-run homer to give Washington a 5-3 win.

New York won the second game 4-2 behind Sonny Gray and scoreless one inning stints from four relievers as the Nationals went 0-for-11 with runners in scoring position.

Baltimore (20-50) sends David Hess (2-3, 4.13) to the mound Tuesday against Jefry Rodriguez (0-0, 0.00).

The Orioles travel down the Baltimore-Washington Parkway on a rare high following Sunday's 10-4 win over the Miami Marlins.

Baltimore had dropped nine games in a row and had lost 11 straight at home, tying the club record.

The Orioles hadn't scored more than five runs since a 9-3 win over the White Sox on May 24 in Chicago, a span of 20 games.

"It was difficult for everyone," Sunday's starting pitcher Dylan Bundy told the Baltimore Sun. "We know what we are capable of, and we're not doing it right now. It was one of those days where we performed the way we should."

The Orioles collected 14 hits, six for extra bases. Third baseman Jace Peterson matched his career high with four RBIs, including a two-run homer. Mark Trumbo hit a solo homer and had an RBI-double for Baltimore, which had scored four runs or fewer in 18 of its past 19 games.

"Usually when the team's struggling as a whole, the pitchers get a little more comfortable on the other side, and they cruise through some of those innings," Trumbo told the Sun. "It's important to try and kind of peck away. I'd like to see a whole lot more games that look like this going forward. I think everybody would."

Hess had been solid before allowing five runs in 3 1/3 innings in his last start, a loss to Boston. He faced the Nationals May 30 and took the loss despite allowing just one run on four hits over six innings.

With starters Stephen Strasburg and Jeremy Hellickson on the disabled list, Rodriguez, 24, will make his first major league start. He is 5-3 with a 3.31 ERA in 13 starts for Double-A Harrisburg.
