The Washington Nationals musted only four hits when they took an 11-0 beating by the hands of the Baltimore Orioles on Friday. The defending World Series champions have had a disappointing start to the year, but I think they'll bounce back with a big win in Saturday's matchup with the O's.

Tom Eshelman (0-0, 2.70 ERA) will take the ball for Baltimore. This will be his first start after tossing 3 1/3 innings out of the bullpen in a 4-0 loss to Miami on August 5. Last season, Eshelman posted a 6.50 ERA through 10 appearances (four starts) covering 36 innings of work.

The Nats counter with Austin Voth (0-1, 3.60 ERA) for his second start of the season after giving up three runs (two earned) in five innings against Toronto in his season debut. Last season, Voth posted a solid 3.30 RA through nine outings (eight starts) with 44 Ks through 43 2/3 frames. That includes six innings of one-run ball in an 8-1 Nationals victory over Baltimore.

While Voth is far from an ace, this is just a good spot to back the Nats to bring their bats to get the job done following Friday's beatdown.
