WASHINGTON — The Washington Nationals nearly swept the Pittsburgh Pirates after it took the previous series against the Texas Rangers earlier in the week.
Washington has won five of its last seven games heading into July. It comes as the Nationals (29-49) are one of the worst teams in baseball statistically but has been riding some timely pitching, including great starts recently from starter Patrick Corbin.
Josh Neighbors of the Locked On Nationals podcast and show shares his thoughts on the Washington Nationals series finale with the Pittsburgh Pirates. He discusses what was a fun back-and-forth game to end the three-game series and gives credit to the offense.
