The Washington Nationals, leading the NL East by 4 games, are in Georgia this weekend for a 3-game set. The team has been on a 10-game road trip that will end on Sunday. They lost 2 of 3 in Baltimore, then split 4 games in the heat (and fires) of Colorado.
The team has exceeded expectations with their excellent pitching, but has disappointed on the hitting side. Injuries to Morse, Werth, and others are largely to blame for the lack of runs, but the recent outburst at Coors Field (double-digit totals in the last three) offer some cause for optimism.
The Nats return home next Tuesday against the San Francisco Giants.
