Game 144 lineups: Nats at Pirates

PITTSBURGH – Hello from PNC Park, where this reporter is making his first trip to this beautiful ballpark! I’ve heard a lot of great things about this stadium and it certainly lives up to the hype.

After a 2-7 homestand, the Nationals will try to reverse their fortunes as they embark on their penultimate road trip of the season. The Nats have played well on the road recently, going 6-4 over their last 10 games away from Nationals Park.

Patrick Corbin will look to become the Nats’ first 10-game winner since 2019, when he, Stephen Strasburg, Max Scherzer and Aníbal Sánchez all won double-digit starts. Oh, how times have changed since Corbin won 14 games in his first year with the Nats, now the owner of a 9-13 record and 5.23 ERA this season.

Corbin gave up three runs over 5 ⅓ innings while taking the loss in the first game of a doubleheader against the Pirates on April 29. But he’s 2-1 with a 2.31 ERA in six career starts at PNC Park.

The Nats dropped two of three to the Pirates that weekend in April, getting outscored 24-11.
