Nationals look for sweep of Milwaukee behind rookie Taylor

After two dramatic victories in the first two games of the series, the Nationals have a chance for a rare sweep Sunday. On the bump for the Nats will be rookie right hander Taylor Jordan (1-3).  Jordan, who despite just one win has pitched very well with a sub 4 ERA, will be opposed by veteran righty Kyle Lohse(7-7). Lohse and Jordan have had similar issues this season as both have been the victims of poor run support. Jordan likely only has a few more starts this year before he is shut down to limit his innings. Jayson Werth is hitting .381 against Kyle Lohse in his career with 3 longballs, while LaRoche is at .300.
