Washington Nationals shut out in Citi Field, in 10-0 loss to New York Mets

“It was going to come, and I kept telling him, ‘Hey, don’t fight it. Don’t worry about the wins and losses, it’s going to come, just keep doing what you’re doing,’” Davey Martinez said. He was talking about conversations with Patrick Corbin, who was winless through nine starts, at (0-7) with a 6.60 ERA, a 4.72 FIP, 20 walks, 39 Ks, and a rough .295/.372/.465 line against in 43 23 innings to start the third year of his 6-year/$140M deal with Washington’s Nationals.

“And tonight was a perfect example that he went out there and like I said, he pitched well, kept us in the game, we scored some runs and he got his first win out of the way,” Martinez added after Corbin gave up seven hits, two walks, and three earned runs in a six-inning, 80-pitch outing against the Colorado Rockies last week.
