Roark back to the hill in series finale vs. Mets

Tanner Roark’s first major league start couldn’t have gone much better.

Roark threw six scoreless innings, allowing just four hits, walking none and striking out four in a win over the Marlins. The rookie right-hander improved to 5-0 with that win, and his ERA dropped to a sparkling 0.94.

Today, Roark gets the ball again in the finale of the Nationals’ four-game series with the Mets.

The Nats have taken the first three in New York and are gunning for a much-needed sweep.

Veteran right-hander Aaron Harang will make his first start with the Mets, after signing with them Sept. 1. Harang went 5-11 with a 5.76 ERA with the Mariners earlier this season before being released.
