WASHINGTON: 2017 97-65, first place, lost to Cubs in NLDS
MANAGER Dave Martinez (first season)
ADDITIONS: 1B-OF Matt Adams, C Miguel Montero, RHP Jeremy Hellickson, RHP Joaquin Benoit, INF Matt Reynolds
SUBTRACTIONS: Manager Dusty Baker, LF Jayson Werth, 1B-LF Adam Lind, C Jose Lobaton, RHP Matt Albers
OUTLOOK: This might be the end of an era at Nationals Park, with Harper eligible to leave as a free agent after the season and General Manager Mike Rizzo's contract set to expire, too. The team has won four NL East titles in the past six years but has zero playoff series victories to show for it. That's why yet another manager (Baker) lost his job, and yet another rookie skipper has been brought in (will Martinez have more success than Matt Williams?). Rizzo has made no secret of the need to start making postseason inroads -- a World Series is the stated goal, and that's certainly not an outrageous aim, given all the talent he's assembled. The lineup remains almost exactly the same, although Werth is gone after playing out his seven-year contract. The rotation and bullpen are also nearly identical to the way they looked at the end of 2017.
PITTSBURGH: 2017 75-87, fourth place
MANAGER Clint Hurdle (seventh season)
ADDITIONS: OF Corey Dickerson, LHP Kyle Crick, RHP Joe Musgrove, RHP Michael Feliz, 3B Colin Moran
SUBTRACTIONS: CF Andrew McCutchen, RHP Gerrit Cole, RHP Daniel Hudson, C Chris Stewart, 1B John Jaso, RHP Joaquin Benoit
OUTLOOK: General Manager Neal Huntington insists the Pirates are not rebuilding, but it certainly looks that way after they flipped franchise cornerstones McCutchen and Cole for less expensive and less proven talent. The Pirates did nothing in free agency, though they were able to grab Dickerson -- an All-Star for Tampa Bay last season -- in February. Dickerson's arrival gives Pittsburgh some stability in the outfield, but the Pirates still have some serious power issues outside of Bell, who finished third in NL Rookie of the Year voting. Pittsburgh finished 29th in the majors in home runs in 2017, and while McCutchen and Dickerson's numbers are comparable, the rest of the lineup isn't exactly imposing. If Marte can put his suspension-marred 2017 behind him, if Polanco and his hamstrings can stay healthy, if Moran proves he can do more than spell Freese at third, and if Taillon, Kuhl and Williams all improve, Pittsburgh could be competitive. That's a lot of "ifs," probably a few too many.
Nationals face Pirates, look to remain over .500

Jeremy Hellickson came close Tuesday. He got the Washington Nationals a win, but they still need more from their starters, whose short outings have taxed the bullpen.

Hellickson, who had given up 11 earned runs in his previous 8 2/3 innings over two starts, allowed three Pittsburgh baserunners on a walk and two singles in a 5-1 victory over the Pirates, but with the Nationals rallying in the sixth and wanting to build on their lead, he left for a pinch-hitter having lasted five innings.

"I think, over the course of a season, things turn around," Washington manager Dave Martinez said. "Our starting pitchers will get back in form and they'll pitch six, seven innings, and our bullpen will get the rest that they need. But right now, we've got to keep fighting, keep scratching and clawing."

The Nationals could get a boost when Stephen Strasburg returns from the disabled list, likely after the All-Star break.

In the meantime -- including the deciding game of the series against the Pirates on Wednesday at PNC Park -- Washington will be without closer and All-Star Sean Doolittle, who was placed on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday because of left toe inflammation. He got hurt Saturday when he tripped over a pitching mound and will miss the All-Star Game.

The Nationals recalled right-handers Wander Suero and Austin Voth from Triple-A Syracuse. They also returned right-hander Jefry Rodriguez, who took the loss and also lasted five innings in the Pirates series opener, to Syracuse.

The Nationals (46-45) broke a two-game slide and won for the fourth time in six games Tuesday to climb back over .500. Pittsburgh (42-49) ended a two-game winning streak and lost for the sixth time in eight games.

For the series finale, Washington left-hander Gio Gonzalez (6-5, 3.76 ERA) is set to face Pittsburgh right-hander Trevor Williams (6-7, 4.60).

Gonzalez's ERA has climbed from 2.27 to 3.76 over his past six starts. He is coming off two straight no-decisions of five innings each. Friday, he gave up eight hits and walked four yet limited Miami to two runs thanks to three double-play grounders in Washington's comeback win.

"We try to encourage him -- 'Hey, you're doing good. Get that little man out of your head'," Martinez said.

Gonzalez is 4-1 with a 3.88 ERA in nine career starts against Pittsburgh.

Williams sounded off after his last outing, when he took the loss Friday, 17-5 against Philadelphia, giving up five runs and five hits in 2 1/3 innings. It was his third straight loss and Pittsburgh's fourth setback in what became a five-game skid.

At that point, the Pirates had lost 30 of their past 44 games and had been outscored by 48-13 over four contests.

"We're tired of losing," Williams said. "I'm tired of getting my (rear) kicked every five days. I'm searching. ... I think for me, personally, it's getting a little embarrassing. I need to have ownership and be better about it."

He was 5-2 with a 2.72 ERA in his first nine starts but is 1-5 with a 7.02 ERA in his past nine.

Against Washington, Williams is 0-1 with a 5.68 ERA in two career appearances (one start). In that start May 3, he gave up three runs in 5 2/3 innings in a 3-1 road loss.
