Nationals reinstate OF Soto (back) from IL

The Nationals were just swept by the Brewers and are now 14-22 on the season. The Nationals also have lost five of their past six games and eight of the past 10.

The Nationals have scored just seven combined runs over their past four games, although Hill (0-0, 3.60 ERA) will be focused mostly on his own issues. The bullpen gave up two runs in 1 1/3 innings on two hits and three walks with one strikeout. The over is 5-0 in Corbin's past five starts against a winning team, while going 4-0-1 in the past five for the Dodgers overall. And he is doing his damage with sporadic playing time as the Dodgers rotate their outfielders, other than Cody Bellinger, who plays daily. Strasburg struck out 11 batters but allowed four runs over 6.2 innings in Tuesday's 6-0 loss to Milwaukee. Ryu was pulled after just 1 2/3 innings of work in a April 8 start against the St. Louis Cardinals, saying after the game that he had felt some tightness in his left groin. Max Muncy led the Dodger offense, going 3 for 5 with a home run and 2 RBI. Justin Turner had an incredible night at the plate. Alex Verdugo had a 2 for 4 night with an RBI, and Austin Barnes went 1 for 3 with a double.

Patrick Corbin will be on the bump for Washington on Thursday.

Dodgers: RHP Walker Buehler (4-0, 4.95) hit 99 miles per hour for the first time this season in his start Monday against the Braves and also reached 100 pitches for the first time.

Needless to say, Ryu's short start as well as his injury did not bode well for a Dodgers team that desperately needed strong starting pitching to match their tremendous early-season offensive output.

Rich Hill will be making his third start of the season for the Dodgers after starting the season on the IL. He has not had a decision and has a 3.60 ERA and 1.30 WHIP with nine strikeouts in 10 innings. The under is 21-8 in Strasburgs last 29 road starts.

The Dodgers have faced Corbin a lot during his time in Arizona.

Clayton Kershaw has been solid against the Braves as they are hitting.241 in 79 at-bats against him.

Kenley Jansen also rebounded from his last outing, the walk-off grand slam, with a 1-2-3 frame to end it. While the rest of his team took a collective nap (combined 5-for-30), Dozier was locked in against the Brew Crew, supplying two singles and a double in the losing effort. Corey Seager is just 4 for 23, and Kike Hernandez is just 4 for 25.

Ryu Hyun-jin of the Los Angeles Dodgers dominated the Atlanta Braves in a complete shutout victory at Dodger Stadium on Tuesday, allowing four hits, no walk, and no run while striking out six over nine innings.

Kershaw was the big storyline heading into the winter, having signed a three-year, $93 million extension that made him one of the highest-paid players in baseball. After three National League Cy Young awards, an MVP, 154 wins and a 2.40 career ERA, Kershaw has not only become one of the best pitchers in Dodger history, but one of the best pitchers in the history of baseball. Take the Dodgers -150.
