3 Things to Watch as Nationals Look to Even Series With Giants
04/17/2019 8:45am

Following an impressive series in Philadelphia, things have not played out how the Nationals would have hoped. Dropping a home series to the Pittsburgh Pirates over the week was immediately followed by a 7-3 loss to the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday. However, Wednesday is a new day and an opportunity for Washington to get back on track.Here are three things to watch for:1. Wheres the relief The first couple weeks of the season didnt go well for the bullpen. Week three hasnt gone much better. The relief staff earned the loss on Sunday after allowing Pittsburgh to break the tie in the ninth with two outs and two strikes. On Tuesday, an inability to hold the Giants in the late innings hindered an opportunity at a comeback win. Besides Sean Doolittle, its hard to think of a reliable and consistent arm in that bullpen. If the Nationals want to get back on track, theyll need some consistency from their late-inning guys.2. Searching for Consistency: Speaking of consistency, its something Washington has struggled to obtain on a larger level than just the bullpen. As NBC Sports Washingtons Todd Dybas explained, the Nationals season has been filled with ups and downs. Philadelphia seemed to be a potential turning point, but two straight losses have stifled that momentum. Its a long season, but itll be interesting to see if the Nationals can begin to string wins together and build on positives.3. Silent Bats: Despite a win on Saturday, the Nationals offense hasnt scored more than three runs in four straight games. This comes immediately after scoring 25 runs in two games theres that inconsistency again. As of late, Anthony Rendon has been doing most of the heavy lifting on the offensive side. Howie Kendrick, Adam Eaton and Juan Soto have contributed at times, but the Nationals are still searching for more production throughout the lineup.Photo Credit: Shutterstock

Maryland Native Tiafoe Reaches Australian Open Quarterfinals According to Washington Kastles owner Mark Ein, the team had previously looked at the spot where Union Markets parking lot sits but couldnt figure out how to fit in the space.The problem was no one looked up, Ein said at a press conference Friday.

The Kastles first match will be the first public event on the rooftop.The team boasts several world-famous tennis players. Frances Tiafoe, a Hyattsville, Maryland, native who is currently the youngest American ranked in the Top 50 of the Association of Tennis Professionals ATP, is headlining the Kastles first three matches.
