Game 49 lineups: Nats at Marlins

Fresh off an impressive 5-0 win over the Marlins in Game 1 of their series-opening doubleheader, the Nationals go for the sweep by sending right-hander Wil Crowe (0-1, 7.50 ERA) to the hill for his third big league start. The Marlins will pitch left-hander Daniel Castano (0-2, 3.32 ERA).

Castano took the loss in the Nats’ 5-4 win on Aug. 22 at Nationals Park. As the opener, Castano allowed two runs on one hit with two walks and recorded only one out, a strikeout.

Today marks the beginning of a five-game series between the Nats and the Marlins. They also faced off in a five-game series from Aug. 21-24, 2020 at Nats Park. The last time the Nats played in a five-game series was against the Phillies during the final homestand of the 2019 campaign. The Expos played in a five-game series against the Marlins from Sept. 13-16, 2004.
