Washington Nationals hardly had to use all their gears during their walk-in-the-park 8-1 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates in the last match. That scoreline is enough to gauge the current form of the Pirates, who have now lost the last nine league games. Considering how both teams have been playing of late, this is likely to be the 10th straight defeat for the Pirates.
