The Nationals vs. today's starter: LHP Cliff Lee

← return to Nationals Watch

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.

Ian Desmond: Never faced.

Rick Ankiel: 0-for-4, 3 K

Jayson Werth: 1-for-3 (.333), .333 OBP, 1 K
