For everything that’s going right for the Nationals so far this season, they are struggling on the road.
The team is just 6-7 on the road, compared to 12-4 (.750) at Nationals Park, the third-best home winning percentage in the major leagues. The disparity is even greater in one-run games, which have accounted for all but two of the Nats’ road losses. The Nationals are 1-5 in such games on the road, but 8-0 at Nats Park. Overall, their 15 one-run games ties them with the Los Angeles Dodgers for the most in the majors.
Nevertheless, the Nationals still have a chance to win their ninth of ten series this season, with their only series loss coming at the hands of the Dodgers in a three-game sweep April 27-29.
