News and Notes: 

  • A.J. Pollock returns to the lineup after getting a couple of days off with tightness in his right knee. Pollock will be in the no.2 hole and play in centerfield. Coming into today’s game he has reached base safely in 25 of his last 26 games.
  • Dbacks Manager Chip Hale doesn’t know if Chase Anderson’s next start will be a rehab start or with the Dbacks.
  • After saying that this would be Zach Godley’s last start, Hale said he might give him another start and go with a 6 man rotation to limit innings of LHP Patrick Corbin. Godley’s innings will be watched because he was a reliever last year.
  • Chris Owings is out of the lineup again. He is working on lengthening his swing after having to put both of his hands on the bat because of his left shoulder.
  • Jayson Werth will not be in the lineup for the Nats getting the day off. He has feasted on Dbacks pitching.
  • Goldy is hitting over .400 in his career at Nationals Park.


Here are the lineups for Chip Hale’s Dbacks and Matt Williams Nationals.
