The Dodgers will send right-hander Tony Gonsolin (2-1, 1.82 ERA) to the mound on Tuesday. In two career appearances (one start) against the Nationals, Gonsolin is 1-1 with a 5.00 ERA. The loss was Gonsolin's only one in all of 2022, as he gave up four runs on six hits over six innings on July 25.
Washington will counter with rookie right-hander Jake Irvin (1-2, 5.32), who will be making his sixth career start. Irvin made his major league debut May 3 against the Chicago Cubs and earned his first victory one start later against the San Francisco Giants -- his lone road outing.
Irvin is coming off a four-inning start against the San Diego Padres on Thursday, when he gave up two runs on two hits with four walks. He has yet to face the Dodgers.
The Nationals have won two of their past three series, but their loss on Monday was the fifth time they dropped a series opener in their past six tries.
