The Buccos have now lost seven in a row and will play a three-game set in D.C. looking to break out of the losing column. JT Brubaker is on the mound tonight, and he’s cooled off considerably after a hot start to the year. Meanwhile, the Nationals will be trotting out Jon Lester, who has yet to win a game this season. Something should give tonight... either Lester gets off the goose egg or Brubaker gets backs in a groove. Let’s hope it’s the latter.

Let’s go Bucs!
