RUBBER MEETS THE ROAD
Washington and Arizona face off in the rubber match of this 3-game set today at Chase Field...following the game, the Nationals will head back to DC and enjoy an off day on Thursday before starting a 6-game homestand against NYM and CIN...the Nationals were stymied by Bronson Arroyo in last night’s 3-1 defeat...Ian Desmond’s RBI-triple in the 2nd inning plated the lone Washington run.
STATUS CHECK...OFFENSE
Despite significant injuries to WIlson Ramos, Ryan Zimmerman and Bryce Harper, as well as short DL stints from Denard Span and Adam LaRoche (5/10-pres.), Wash-ington’s offense ranks among National League clubs in batting average (6th, .251), on-base percentage (5th, .316), slugging percentage (5th, .399) and OPS (4th, .715).In addition, with 154 runs in 39 games, the Nationals’ run production is up 12 per-cent compated to the initial 39 contests of 2013 (137 runs).
K STREET
Nationals pitchers are T2nd in MLB in strikeouts (345), 3rd in K/9.0 (8.9) and are 3rd in the the league strikeout percentage (23.3)...the last DC team to pace MLB in strikeouts: the 1919 AL Nationals (536).
BULLISH ON THE NATIONALS’ ‘PEN
At 2.32 (32 ER/124.1 IP), Matt LeCroy’s bullpen is one of just 3 in MLB to currently sport a sub-2.50 ERA for the season (Padres 2.09, Giants 2.17).
SCORE 4 = WIN MORE
The Nationals are 16-1 when scoring 4 or more runs and, conversely, just 4-18 when limited to 3 or fewer runs by opposing pitchers.
SLOW STARTS, FANTASTIC FINISHERS
While the Nationals have run up an 18-run first-inning deficit (17 for, 39 against) this year, Washington has outscored opponents, 69-36, in from the 7th inning on.The Nationals pace MLB with a +33 run differential after the 6th inning (a.k.a. 7th-inning+) with the PIT (+25) ranking 2nd.
DC’S COMEBACK KIDS
Washington’s 11 comeback wins are 3rd in MLB behind the Brewers and Tigers (13) and the Angels (12)...like the Nationals, the Mets, Padres and Pirates also have 11 come-from-behind wins in 2014.
HOMEGROWN TALENT
11 of the 25 players on Washington’s roster are homegrown talents drafted and developed exclusively by the Nationals: Aaron Barrett, Ian Desmond, Ross Detwiler, Danny Espinosa, Sandy Leon, Tyler Moore, Anthony Rendon, Craig Stammen, Drew Storen, Stephen Strasburg, Jordan Zimmermann.• The Nationals have employed 33 players this season, 16 of whom are home-grown.
BUNTS R’ US
The Nationals pace MLB with 14 bunt hits...Danny Espinosa (6) is tied with LAD’s Dee Gordon for the most bunt hits in MLB.
SOLAR POWER
At 28-9, Washington’s Single-A South Atlantic League affi liate, the Hagerstown Suns, lead all of Minor League Baseball with a .784 winning percentage and rank 2nd with 59 stolen bases...their .284 batting average as a team pace the South At-lantic League.
MEET MATT WILLIAMS
Matt Williams, 48, was named the 5th field manager of the Nationals on Oct. 31, 2013...the managerial position is the first of his career...joins the Nationals organiza-tion after spending the previous 4 seasons on Kirk Gibson’s coaching staff in ARI...Williams hit .268 (1878-for-7000) with 338 2B, 378 HR, 1218 RBI and 997 runs in 1866 games spanning 17 decorated seasons with ARI (‘98-03), CLE (1997) and SFG (‘87-96)...Williams was a 5-time All-Star (‘90, ‘94-96, ‘99) and a 4-time recipient of the Rawlings Gold Glove (‘91, ‘93-94, ‘97) and Louisville Slugger Silver Slugger (‘90, ‘93-94, ‘97) awards...his 359 career homers as a third baseman ranks 5th on the all-time list (Mike Schmidt 509, Eddie Matthews 486, Chipper Jones 389, Graig Nettles 368). • Williams reached the postseason on 6 occasions, won 3 pennants and claimed a World Championship (2001 Diamondbacks)...in all, played in 51 postseason games/18 World Series contests...sports previous managerial experience gained with the Salt River Rafters (AFL division title, ‘12) and the Double-A Mobile Bay-Bears (skippered final 5 weeks of ‘07 after Brett Butler suffered a mild stroke)...Williams’ baseball DNA traces back to his grandfather, outfielder Bert Griffi th, who was a member of the 1924 World Champion AL Nationals...born in Bishop, CA and a native of Carson City, NV, Williams is an alum of UNLV.
