Nats 6, Pirates 5

What a crushing weekend for the Pirates. Three one-run losses, two walk off losses, two blown-leads by their best relievers, a season-long losing streak (longest since 2012), and a lot of ground lost in the various playoff races. This game was a wild one, and wasn’t exactly well-played by either side at several points. Edinson Volquez and Doug Fister both looked great, but both...

Daily SP Rankings: Tuesday, Aug 12

Tuesday’s top fours — Adam Wainwright, Doug Fister, Jon Lester, and Chris Sale — are clearly the top pitchers on the day. As for the rest? That’s why we have the rankings! Odrisamer Despaigne will take on the Rockies (and Yohan Flande) at home in what should be a pretty good outing (or at least a great chance at a win). I like Kyle Hendricks, but the Brewers could be a tough...
