Joe Ross took the loss after allowing four earned runs on Saturday. Ross threw 4 1/3 innings with seven hits, five runs (four earned), one walk, and five strikeouts.
After four solid starts with a 1.80 ERA, 1.04 WHIP, 30% K%, and 6% BB% in 25 innings pitched, Ross struggled a bit on Saturday against a Cubs team that traded away their top talent as the Nationals did. Don't cut Ross in 15-team leagues. He should bounce back in his next start.
