Washington Nationals Game Notes
Paolo Espino’s last start against the Pirates was by far his worst. He gave up the most home runs in an appearance all year and the most since September 24 last year. A large part of his success comes from his curveball, which grades out as one of the better curves in baseball, and even better than it was last season. His changeup could use some improvement, but he does not throw it nearly enough for it to hurt him.
