The Bucs will look to clinch a series win tonight against the Nats. It would be nice if they could do that tonight, because tomorrow’s pitching matchup is far from ideal…
Ross Detwiler (3-1, 1.59) vs. Erik Bedard (2-4, 2.65)
Detwiler–the 6th overall pick of the 2007 draft–has settled into the Nats’ rotation nicely and is off to an awesome start this year (just like every other Nats pitcher). He’s their fifth starter and has pitched like an ace so far.
Bedard is coming off that ridiculous outing in St. Louis in which he struck out 11 over just 5 innings. Imagine what he could do if he gets deeper in to the game! We’ll see if he can be more efficient early on tonight.
