Nationals pitchers for Game 7
Because of the amazing performance from Strasburg in Game 6, the Nationals have just about every pitcher available in Game 7.
Even with extra rest, it’s hard to see Scherzer going very long in this game with the injuries he’s been dealing with.
I expect this to be another grinder of a game for Scherzer, and I would be happy if the gave us 5 solid innings.
After that, there’s really only three or four pitchers the Nationals can go to in order to finish off the game.
If they need to cover another inning in the middle of the game, it will likely be Anibal Sanchez that gets the ball.
But those are the five pitchers the Nationals will be counting on in Game 7 in order to win the World Series.
Any chance Strasburg could throw one more inning? Doubtful, but it is a Game 7 of the World Series, anything can happen.
