Nationals Going for 6th Straight Win, Sweep of Tigers

The Washington Nationals have won a season-high five straight games, reversing the damage of a four-game skid that left them 27-35 a week ago. They can creep closer to the .500 mark on Thursday afternoon when they go for a sweep of their three-game series with the host Detroit Tigers.

Nationals’ Hot Streak

The Nationals began their burst with three straight wins over the Atlanta Braves and have scored 29 runs during the hot streak. Leadoff hitter CJ Abrams led Wednesday’s 7-5 victory with a solo homer and RBI double.

Washington at first intended to begin left-hander MacKenzie Carnage on Thursday. However, Patrick Corbin, a different lefty pitcher, will be called up to replace the 25-year-old. The Washington manager Dave Martinez stated, “We’re pushing MacKenzie back a day.” He needs another day because he has a small nail problem on his throwing hand. Along these lines, Corbin’s all set.”

Patrick Corbin’s Struggles

Corbin (1-7, 6.15 ERA) has lost four straight decisions in a span of five starts. Most recently, against the visiting New York Mets on June 5, he gave up six earned runs, including three home runs, and seven hits in 5 1/3 innings. “Couple heaters on the corner, but elevated,” Corbin said of the homers. “Maybe not the best sinker. They put some good swings on some of those pitches.” Over his past four starts, Corbin has been taken deep eight times.

Corbin won his only career outing against Detroit. On May 20, 2023, he held the Tigers to two runs on six hits in six innings in a 5-2 win in Washington.

Casey Mize’s Season

Casey Mize (1-4, 4.73 Time), who is planned to begin for Detroit, has not dominated a match since April 21. He has a record of 0-4, with four no-decisions and a 5.73 earned run average. Mize pitched 5 1/3 innings against the Milwaukee Brewers, allowing eight hits and five runs (three of which were earned). He threw 97 pitches and only struck out one player. After two innings, the Tigers had a 4-1 lead, but they lost 5-4. Mize stated, “Obviously, I did not do a sufficient job on the scoreboard.” Too many runs and too many hits Our offense had a decent blueprint against (Brewers starter Freddy) Peralta and pursued him from the game early and set up certain runs. What’s more, I couldn’t hold the lead for us. evidently dissatisfied by that.”

Disappointing could describe the entire season for Mize, who missed most of the past two seasons after undergoing Tommy John surgery. His fastball velocity is better than ever, averaging 95.5 mph, but he has struggled to put away batters. He has just 39 strikeouts in 59 innings. Mize, the top pick of the 2018 draft, will be facing the Nationals for the first time.

Bullpen Situation

Assuming that Thursday’s down is close, Washington will probably be without closer Kyle Finnegan. He has pitched the beyond three games, getting two recoveries and a triumph. In this series, Finnegan struck out three of the four hitters he looked on Tuesday, a 5-4, 10-inning triumph. Despite giving up a solo home run to Riley Greene, he pitched the ninth inning on Wednesday and got his 19th save.

Conclusion

The Nationals will count on Patrick Corbin’s solid performance pitching as they aim to increase their winning streak to six games and sweep the Tigers. Meanwhile, the Tigers are optimistic that Casey Mize will rediscover his old self and help his team avoid being swept. The final episode is guaranteed to be a thrilling competition as both teams are committed to securing a victory.
