With 32 games left, Nationals pitchers set club record for strikeouts

Thursday night’s game against the marked Game No. 130 for the Nats. Seeing as how the Nationals have never finished above .500 and this season they have been as many as 31 games over .500, club records are going to be shattered. 

Here’s one that just happened. When Nationals starter struck out Cardinals left fielder in the top of the sixth inning, it was the 1,069th strikeout by the Washilks with Thibaut Courtois about his future.Since his return, replacing Julen Lopetegui after his sacking, Zidane has rotated his keepers Courtois, Keylor Navas and son Luca Zidane. It has led to talk of Courtois being moved on this summer.However, Okngton pitching staff this season. That established a newo Manchester United.United paid £46.5m plus add-ons for Fernandes but Varandas admitted they were nearly forced them to take a lower offer from Tottenham.“At the end of June, we had become aware that we were going to sell Bruno,” he told Record.”W Nationals record ().

The Nats are fourth in the majors in strikeouts, behind the , and , so they aren’t going to set a big-league record or anything.

This is newsworthy because the Nationals are going to obliterate a club record. They came into Thursday averaging 8.21 strikeouts per game. At thed star Ander Herrera has been listed on the Paris Saint-Germain official website.Herrera officially confirmed his departure from United and is a free agent, but he has not announced a move to PSG as yet.Eagle eyed fans spotted that “Herrera 21” on tat pace, the Nats will end with 1,331. And, again, they previously never struck out more than 1,068 hitters in one season. That is pretty impressive.
