After a convincing win helped by a strong start by rookie Joe Ross, the Nationals will look to secure a series split on Sunday against the Brewers in Milwaukee.
They will have to do it, however, without Bryce Harper. Harper is out of the lineup after getting hit in the left knee with a pitch in Saturday’s win. Danny Espinosa is back at first base. And Yunel Escobar is batting cleanup.
Max Scherzer (6-5, 2.13) will start for the Nats in his 13th appearance of the 2015 season. He has allowed four earned runs in each of his last two outings.
Starting for Milwaukee will be 6-foot-6 right-hander Taylor Jungmann (1-0, 1.29). Jungmann is making just his second career start after debuting on June 9 against the Pirates. That day he went seven innings and allowed just one run on three hits and a walk.
We are not in Milwaukee for this one, but please check back in the morning for remote analysis…
