Game 145 lineups: Nats at Pirates

PITTSBURGH – The Nationals got a great start from Patrick Corbin last night to end a long stretch without length from their starter. Is it too much to ask for a second in a row?

Joan Adon will try to provide the Nats with back-to-back quality starts for the first time in a while. Since rejoining the rotation as the sixth man, the right-hander is 2-1 with a 5.59 ERA over six outings. He has tossed two quality starts, each coming in his two road starts in Cincinnati and Miami. Although he struck out six in his last start, he gave up two runs in five innings on 80 pitches.

Offensively, the Nats took the lead first last night for the first time in two weeks, led by CJ Abrams’ first multi-homer game and another homer from Dominic Smith. Again I ask, is it too much to ask for a second in a row?
