August 7, lineups vs. the Rockies

by Jacob Emert 

Last night, Joe Ross led the Nationals to a statement win, one they hope will end the recent tumble. Wilson Ramos and Ian Desmond both had big hits, and they will both be key for the Nationals down the stretch.

The big news of the night came after the game, when Matt Williams announced Joe Ross will stay in the rotation, and Doug Fister will move to the bullpen. 

Below are tonight’s lineups for the series opener against the Rockies, accompanied by each starter’s second-half slash line (average/on-base/slugging).
