Wainwright ended a stellar July with his fourth win and quality start of the month, but wasn't pleased with his outing against the Pirates on Tuesday. He gave up eight hits and a walk in six innings and was constantly working out of jams. He blamed a combination of an inconsistent delivery and below-par stuff for his struggles on the day. He, along with La Russa, was encouraged by the fact that he made few mistakes with runners in scoring position and gave up just two runs despite the high number of baserunners.

Chico provided the Nationals with a short but solid outing last Tuesday against the Reds. He pitched five innings, and allowed a runner in scoring position in every inning. However, he fought his way out of jams and finished with just two runs allowed on nine hits. He's the only Nationals pitcher who hasn't missed a start this season.
