Washington Nationals 2019 first-round pick Jackson Rutledge starts tonight for the FredNats against RHP Juan De Los Santos for the Shorebirds. 1-5 with an 8.00 ERA on the season so far.
Rutledge is in search of his second win in his last four starts after pitching 6 shutout innings at home against Lynchburg two weeks ago and then facing one over the minimum through 4 innings before a rain delay ended his start in Myrtle Beach.
In 11.1 innings at home this year, Rutledge has only allowed three earned runs for an ERA of 2.38. In his last home start against Lynchburg, the sinkerballer righty got 12 groundouts to go along with four strikeouts and only one walk. Rutledge pitched in the last series at Delmarva and got roughed up, lasting just 2.2 innings and giving up 6 hits and 6 earned runs.
