Normally, facing Cliff Lee after Roy Halladay would be an incredibly daunting task — and quite honestly it still is. But the Nationals are stepping in against Lee at what may be a good time, after the left-hander went just 3 1/3 innings in his last start, allowing six earned runs in a 6-3 loss to the Braves.

We’ll see how he rebounds in a few hours but for now, here’s a look at the Nationals’ career numbers against him.
