Game Thread #12: Brewers (4-7) at Nationals (6-5)

New, 313 comments

On Friday and Saturday the Nationals won the first 2 matchups in the current series. Today, Doug Davis will dig deep inside to find his inner-Suppan-sweep-stopper. Doug Davis will match up with Nationals starter Jason Marquis. Both Davis and Marquis sport ERAs of over 12.00. After crunching the numbers, I have concluded that this game is unlikely to be scoreless after 19 innings, and probably 19 pitches.
