Game Preview: New York Yankees @ Washington Nationals 5/20

Just like that in the blink of an eye the series between the New York Yankees and the Washington Nationals ends today. It feels like only yesterday these two teams were getting started in the series inside Nationals Park, probably because it was just only yesterday when the series started. Last night we watched as Nathan Eovaldi dueled with Gio Gonzalez and tonight we should have another good pitching matchup with Adam Warren taking the hill for the Yankees to face off with Jordan Zimmerman for the Nationals. The game will be played at 7:05 pm ET and can be seen on the YES Network and MLB TV.

  • Warren is coming off a start in which he pitched well against the Tampa Bay Rays but not well enough to win in a loss for the Yankees. Warren pitched a career high seven innings against Tampa throwing his first quality start of his career allowing three runs and seven hits with seven strikeouts in the loss. Hopefully that was a building block for Warren and the Yankees this season.

  • Zimmerman has been dominant in his last three starts for Washington posting a 1-0 record with a 1.89 ERA with 12 K's. Zimmerman is a tough matchup for any team especially the New York Yankees who will be without Alex Rodriguez for much of the series.

The Yankees are off tomorrow so it’s never a bad thing to go into an off day and end a road trip with a victory so let’s hope New York gets that victory in this contest. Go Yankees!
