Gio cruised through the 1st, capped off by a sick catch by every baseball movie’s villain Adam Eaton.
In the top of the 2nd JT Riddle continued crushing Nats pitching with a double into the rightfield corner off of Gio. Who the HELL is JT Riddle??
First blood from Miami in the top of the 3rd with a Starlin Castro bloop after two walks by Gio. Followed by a ball over Bryce’s head to get two more.
The rest of Gio’s start was an absolute dumpster fire:
4.2 innings: 10 hits, 8 Runs (all earned), 4 walks, 5 K’s. Up to 4.51 ERA on the season.
The Nats spent the rest of the day giving up more runs and letting Urena pitch all over them.
Urena’s final line:
9 innings, 2 hits, 1 ER, 2 walks, 4 K’s. Just straight up dominated the Nats bats.
Terrible game, terrible series, terrible season.
7:05PM ET Tuesday, Velasquez (8-9, 4.13 ERA) vs. Roark (8-12, 4.13 ERA)
