05/19 Padres Preview: Game 43 vs. Washington

USA TODAY Sports

Andrew Cashner and the Padres look to secure the series split against the Nationals on Military Appreciation Sunday.

Today the Padres will try to get back-to-back wins against the Nationals for the first time since 2011. Andrew Cashner will take the mound in the series finale of the four-game set between the two ball clubs at Petco Park. He is coming off two of the best starts of his career, each of which lasted 7 1/3 innings and saw him and giving up a combined two runs (one earned) and go 1-0. He is also 1-0 all-time against the Nationals in five relief outings. He's given up two hits and struck out six over 5 2/3 innings.

Washington will send Dan Haren to the mound to go for his fourth win in five starts. His last time out he pitched a solid seven innings while allowing just two runs on six hits, but ended up with the loss as the Nats failed to provide him with any run support. Haren hasn't had much luck pitching in San Diego. In two starts at Petco Park (as a member of the Angels) he's given up nine runs in 11 2/3 innings and taken the loss in both.
