The Dodgers are coming off an extra-inning loss in Oakland on Wednesday — a game they let get away with some poor hitting with runners in scoring position and some not-so-great bullpen work.
The Nationals — after a COVID-fueled delayed start to their season, are playing in their second series of the season after dropping two of three to the Braves.
