The Baltimore Orioles determines to end their losing streak
At the start of this regular season, many people expected that the Baltimore Orioles would belong to the top weak teams of the league one more time. However, this team has brought a big surprise to the baseball fans. In spite of the fact the 2020 season has just begun, they have won 5 out of 8 first games.
Unfortunately, the Baltimore Orioles could not have kept up the form. After the great performance at the start of the season, they are now in a long losing streak of 4 fail games. At this time, the whole team knows that they still have a lot of things to do in order to get out of this streak. Otherwise, if Baltimore continues losing, they may be knocked back into the very bottom of the AL East league.
On this Friday night, the player Tommy Milone will take the mission to be the game starter. This is quite a concerning situation if we base on the results of this player in 2020. So far for this league, the record of Tommy Milone was not good, as he only gets a 0-1 record coming along with a 5.63 Earned Run Average (ERA). Things even come worse when we notice the ERA of his career. In detail, this number is only 4.48 ERA. Therefore, it is very difficult to expect that he could be an above-average starter in the future.
But that does not mean no hope for the Baltimore Orioles. In fact, Baltimore’s fans can still place their trust in the second baseman – Hanser Alberto. This player has made a quite good performance till now with a .333 batting average coming along with 2 home runs and 5 RBIs. Furthermore, Hanser Alberto is now in good form after successfully making 2 hits in 5 at-bats in the last day. Well! What we can say now is that Hanser Alberto has been ready for the match!
The Washington Nationals will fight to keep up the good work!
After being the champion of the World Series last season, the Washington Nationals begins this 2020 league receiving a lot of pressure. Because the Washington Nationals has lost some essential key pieces such as James Bourque, Andrew Stevenson, Max Scherzer, Stephen Strasburg, etc., they will get many difficulties on the way to protect their title this year.
Unlike the Baltimore Orioles, the Washington Nationals begins their season quite slowly. Among their 5 first games, Washington has been beaten on 4. But luckily, they have noticed their weakness and started fixing it. As a result, Washington Nationals has made it to win 3 out of 4 games recently. And at the moment, this team is belonging to the top 3 squads in the NL East. With this impressive performance, Washington Nationals will try their best to continue winning the August 7 match.
About the resources of the team, the whole players just have finished their beneficiaries of a day off on the last day. Also, they did not have to travel a far distance, as Washington had the permission to play on their home field the previous match against New York. Thus, these players will be able to have the fullest stamina for the next game.
On this Friday night, the star outfielder Juan Soto will lead the offensive part of the team. This man has performed quite well, despite the fact that he has not played much in this 2020 league. More specifically, Juan Soto has got a .500 Batting Average and 1 RBI from the season beginning till now. Having been just removed from the 10-Day Injury List (Coronavirus exposure), Juan can not make sure for his best health, but he will still try his best to dedicate a good game.
