doug_fisterThe third and last game of this weekend mini-series between the Washington Nationals and the Cincinnati Reds features Doug Fister taking on Mat Latos , this Sunday at 1:10 PM ET at the Great American Ball Park, in Ohio.

The Nationals won the first game in the series on Friday 4-1 and are now with 56 wins and 45 losses in the season and 26-25 away from home.

“It’s part of our DNA,” manager Matt Williams said. “We’re going to be aggressive. Sometimes it works. Sometimes it bites you. You can’t change the way we play. It’s aggressive by nature.”

Fister will be his 14th game in the season; he has a 9-2 record with a 2.92 ERA, despite the fact that he has barely 49 strikeouts.

The Red won the last outing 1-0; they have 52 wins in the season and 51 losses and 28-22 at home.  Matt Latos has seven starts in the season with 2-2 record, 3.15 ERA and 26 strikeouts.

“You’ve heard me talk about how teams go through stretches like this,” manager Bryan Price said. “You hope it’s not in September where it takes you out of the race. This one didn’t, but I’m sure everybody in this building is feeling a lot better.”

“You can’t fault the guys for trying,” Latos said. “It all boils down to me not executing pitches.”

The money line has Cincinnati +010 to win the game, and Washington is -110. The game total for this one is at 7 runs.
