Monday afternoon, the Miami Marlins will take the field behind Nathan Eovaldi as they square off against the Washington Nationals and Tanner Roark. Eovaldi will be making his 11th start as Roark makes his 10th.
Nathan Eovaldi boosted his record to 3 -2 with an ERA of 3.41 after getting the win in his last start. In that outing, Eovaldi allowed 3 runs on 10 hits in 6 innings of work. He walked 1 and struck out 2. Eovaldi should have no trouble posting a better record this season than he did last season when he went 4 - 6 with a 3.39 ERA in 18 starts.
In 2013, Eovaldi was 1 - 2 with a 6.00 ERA in 3 starts against the Nationals. And he will have to watch out for almost every batter in the Washington lineup. The Nationals are batting .317 with 2 homers and 10 RBIs in 63 at-bats.
Tanner Roark took a loss in his last start despite a solid effort from him. His record fell to 3 – 2 with a 3.42 ERA after he allowed just 2 runs on 6 hits in 6 innings. Roark walked 3 and struck out 2. But when your offense only scores a run, you get the loss. Last season, Roark went 7 - 1 with a 1.51 ERA in 5 starts and 9 relief appearances.
In 2013, Roark was 1 – 0 with a 0.00 ERA in 1 start and 2 relief appearances against the Marlins. In 9 innings of work, he only gave up 5 hits and 2 walks while striking out 6. This season, Roark pitched to a no decision against Miami after allowing 3 runs on 7 hits (including a homer) in 6.1 innings.
