With their 3-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates on Sunday afternoon, the Nationals have now lost six of their 10 games since the All-Star break ended.
The Nationals enter Sunday with a chance to split their four-game series against the Pirates with Joe Ross on the mound.

The Nationals' starting rotation hasn't been nearly as good collectively as many predicted it would be this year, and part of the reason has been the disappointing season of Doug Fister.
