    May 20-22: Nationals (23-21) @ Giants (24-20)




    Washington Nationals (23-21) @ San Francisco Giants (24-20)
    May 20-22, 2013




    Monday @ 10:15 PM ET


    ---------Zach Duke (0-0, 8.40 ERA) vs. Ryan Vogelsong (1-4, 8.06 ERA)


    Nationals: Pitching coach Steve McCatty informed Duke of the assignment Saturday afternoon, and the left-hander immediately had a bullpen session. In four games, Duke is 1-0 with a 1.08 ERA at AT&T Park.

    Giants: By making the NL All-Star team in 2011 and leading the Giants in postseason victories last year, Vogelsong has earned what manager Bruce Bochy called a "long leash." Vogelsong still might need a strong outing to guarantee himself another start.


    Tuesday @ 10:15 PM ET


    Stephen Strasburg (2-5, 2.83 ERA) vs. Matt Cain (3-2, 5.43 ERA)


    Nationals: In his last start against the Padres, Strasburg was solid, pitching a career-high eight innings, allowing two runs -- one earned -- on three hits and striking out four. Strasburg made it look easy to pitch in front of his family.

    Giants: San Francisco has won Cain's last four starts. But consistency has eluded him. The middle two outings, in which he allowed three runs in 15 1/3 innings, were sandwiched by a pair of games in which he surrendered three homers.


    Wednesday @ 3:45 PM ET


    -----------Gio Gonzalez (3-2, 4.01 ERA) vs. Madison Bumgarner (4-2, 3.09 ERA)


    Nationals: Gonzalez ended up with a no decision. He lasted 6 2/3 innings, allowed two earned runs and struck out five batters and walked three. It looked like it was going to be a short night for Gonzalez after he threw 45 pitches in the first two frames.

    Giants: Bumgarner endured some unpleasant firsts in his last time out. The nine runs he yielded exceeded his previous high of eight on June 21, 2011, against Minnesota. He also allowed his first Major League grand slam, struck by Colorado's Jordan Pacheco.

    So yeah this opening game is not what you want to see.

    Tough news about Vogelsong on the Giants side. Never want to see injuries happen.

    Ryan Mattheus has a broken hand after punching a locker on Sunday. Wonderful.

    Abad and Maya are coming up to offer some badly needed relief to this bullpen.

    Pretty sad when you can't score a run after the 1st inning and just give away a game. Doesn't help either when you need to use Yunesky Maya.

    Mattheus injury comes back to bite the Nats already. He probably would have pitched the 10th instead of the AAA fodder known as Maya.
