Gameday Thread: Nationals @ Marlins, Game 3
« Topic Start: July 31, 2005, 11:14:14 AM »

Livan Hernandez, RHP (12-4, 3.32)

Brian Moehler, RHP (6-7, 3.56)

Game Time: 1:05 PM Scouting Report:
Hernandez will face the Marlins for the fourth time this season. He is 0-1 with a 3.43 ERA against them. In his last start, it looked as though Hernandez's 10-game losing streak against the Braves was going to come to an end. The last time he defeated the Braves during the regular season was on Aug. 18, 2000, when he was a member of the Giants. Hernandez pitched eight innings and allowed one run on five hits. He struck out five batters and walked only one. But the bullpen lost the game in 10 innings, 3-2.

Unsung for much of the season, Moehler had his four-game winning streak come to an end last Tuesday in a loss to the Pirates. In five July starts, the right-hander is 4-1 with a 5.20 ERA. His 4 1/3-inning outing against Pittsburgh was his shortest stint as a starter this season. Moehler has allowed 41 hits and 16 runs in 27 2/3 innings this month.
