The Nationals lost 5-3 to Atlanta as they surrendered a Grand Slam for the 2nd straight evening. Mark & Al run through the managerial decisions from the loss, ranging from when Juan Soto should have pinch hit, how the lineup was constructed, and the decision to walk the slumping Freddie Freeman in the 3rd? Should Soto have hit for Yan Gomes or Victor Robles in the 8th?
(13:05) Is there a trade that GM Mike Rizzo should look into in order to bolster the lineup? Would this deal be somewhat imminent or not until July?
(21:33) Erick Fedde's evening was a rough one as he gave up all five runs and continued his struggles against the Braves. However, the bullpen and mainly Kyle Finnegan, had an "Immaculate" Evening.
(30:31) Finally, a preview of Jon Lester's Thursday start as Washington looks to avoid being swept.
