Nationals @ Rays, Game 1
« Topic Start: September 15, 2020, 03:47:08 PM »

Game #1 of a 2-game series
Tuesday, September 15, 2020
Game Location: The Trop
Game Time: 6:40 p.m. EDT
Weather: doesn't really matter

Another thread started a bit early to hopefully remind anyone visiting the forum over the course of the day that this is yet another game with an odd starting time.

Both teams are 5-5 in their last ten games, with two of the Nats wins also being Rays losses. The Rays "starter" Curtiss is a relief pitcher who has only ever opened one other game, and then only for 1 1/3 innings. As a reliever/opener, he is slightly over 1 K per inning. Aníbal's last start was a win over the Rays last week, giving up three runs in 5 innings on 4 hits and 2 walks with 6 Ks.
