The Diamondbacks have the worst home record in the major leagues winning only 3 of 19 games as the host. They send out Bronson Arroyo to the mound in hopes of turning it around tonight. Arroyo has been fantastic in his last 2 starts pitching 14.1 innings and allowing zero earned runs on 8 hits and striking out 10. His overall home numbers don’t impress with a 0-1 W-L record and bloated 8.36 ERA, but he has pitched adequately in 2 of 3 of his home starts with his last outing being a quality start. Arroyo’s historical numbers versus Washington’s roster are poor, but the injuries to Zimmerman and Harper change the overall numbers. Stephen Strasburg gets the start for the Nationals and will be looking to extend his quality start streak to 5 games. Strasburg has owned Arizona in his career allowing 2 or fewer runs in all 4 of his lifetime starts.
