The longest scoreless innings streak by a Nationals pitcher this season doesn't belong to Max Scherzer or Stephen Strasburg or Patrick Corbin or Sean Doolittle. It belongs to Joe Ross.
Was talking to somebody with #Nats about Joe Ross' renaissance recently. A few teams called Washington about him at the deadline and they said no. They still believed in him. He's rewarding them for their -- extreme -- patience.
Forecast: cloudy with a chance of a curly W! Joe Ross pitches a quality start in the #Nats' 3-1 win over the Reds!
Joe Ross has not allowed a run in his last 16 1/3 IP, the longest streak by a Nationals pitcher this season.
That’s pretty incredible on a team that includes Scherzer, Strasburg, Corbin, Doolittle, etc.
Daniel Hudson gets out of a 9th inning jam to earn his 1st save as a National, 12th of his long career. Nats beat Reds, 3-1, behind another strong start from Joe Ross.
*gets to 4.5 back from both wild card spots*
Loses up 3-0 with Castillo on the mound
Loses to Erick Fedde
Loses to Joe Ross
It’s just been that kind of year.
Nats win 3-1. They complete the save without Doolittle thanks to a 4-out save from Hudson. Joe Ross was good. Dozier/Soto both return to the lineup with homers.
Joe Ross on @MASN postgame tells @masn
Kolko that Paul Menhart has changed the pace he works at and the height he lifts his knee among other tweaks. Gave him credit for what's gone well with him lately. #Nats.
*Removes Joe Ross' glasses. Then use my hands to push on his face and pull on his cheeks.

Score six runs last night and lose.
Hold the Nationals to three runs tonight and only score one run vs Joe Ross (6.75 ERA, 5.19 FIP) and the 15th worst bullpen by ERA in MLB history.
Last three starts from Joe Ross:
5.1 IP, 1H, 5 walks, scoreless
6.0 IP, 3 H, 2 walks, scoreless
6.2 IP, 5 H, 2 walks, one run
You made Joe Ross look like a CY Young.
#Reds lost their 3rd game in a row, drop their record to 15-16 following the All-Star break. https://t.co/7eUpkFPk2i

It finally happened. I DM’d Joe Ross so much he unfollowed me
I got trolled by one when I said I loved Joe Ross. Asshole
Wow, great pitching by Joe Ross last 3 starts.
1) I need that last Hudson pitch on loop forever
2) Robles is amazing
3) Soto. Don’t be surprise.
4) I buried Joe Ross. He was outstanding tonight. I’ll eat crow. He’s been incredible.
The unshakeable Joe Ross...Reds can’t shake him
#NATSWINHIVE THE NATIONALS WIN THE SERIES AS JOE ROSS PITCHES WELL AGAIN. DANIEL HUDSON GETS A HUGE SAVE. ROBLES AND SOTO CONTINUE TO SHOW THAT THEYRE THE BEST YOUNG DUO IN BASEBALL. THE RACE TO OCTOBER CONTINUES. https://t.co/391Si16nTD
