Bryce Harper hits leadoff for first time since 2013

Bryce Harper hits leadoff for first time since 2013”

The Washington Nationals picked up a home victory against the surging Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday night and now they have their ace on the hill for Tuesday's matchup at 7:05 p.m. ET. Updates with new lead and quotes.

Taillon had an 0.89 ERA through his first three starts but has given up 12 runs on 14 hits in only 5 1/3 innings his last two times out.

Chad Kuhl struck out eight hitters and allowed three runs in six innings in an 8-3 win over the Tigers on Wednesday. In Tuesday night's 12-4 loss to the Washington Nationals, the Pirates played one of their poorest games of the season as the offense did little, the pitching was bad, and the team had some miscues in the field as well.

If the Penguins had scored on the play, they would have cut Washington's lead to 3-2. And he throws everything at you. "He's very unpredictable on the mound". Washington left eight men on base.

The Central Division leaders got a two-run single from catcher Elias Diaz to break a 0-0 tie in a four-run sixth. Entering the game the Pirate first baseman had been struggling mightily this season, but he went 2-for-3 with a walk and a double on Tuesday night.

Roark gave up four runs on six hits over six innings in a loss to the Giants last time out. The Pirates had won five straight. Corey Dickerson hit a home run for the Pirates. Roark told his manager he could get Mercer out. I look for a 6-3 Washington win in this one, so let's go with the Over. The first six-game victor in the major leagues this year, Scherzer drove in his second run of the season with an RBI single and scored twice. Then Taillon threw a wild pitch, allowing the runners to advance. Roark hit the next pitch up the middle to score Matt Wieters and put the Nationals ahead 2-1, his second hit this season and his fifth career RBI.

"Yeah, at 25 years old you want to hit the baseball", Harper said. "He did his job, too". Trea Turner, Martinez's latest attempt at protecting Harper, doubled home three. He has yet to face the Nationals this year and only made one start against them in 2017 (0-1, 13.50 ERA and three strikeouts over four innings). Harper assented, convinced by the same logic Martinez said convinced him to suggest the move in the first place. In addition to moving Harper to the leadoff spot, Martinez chose to hit Scherzer eighth, putting Difo in the ninth spot. There is still no timetable for his return. Voth has been a starter for almost his entire minor league career, while Suero is a reliever with 30 career minor league saves.

Suero had a chance to make the team out of spring training before he suffered an oblique injury on March 9. After allowing 4 hits and issuing a pair of walks, Glasnow had been saddled for 6 runs and the Nats led 12-0.

"I like his ability to get both lefty hitters and righty hitters out".
