The Washington Nationals didn't list a starting pitcher at the time this article was published, but I'm not sure it matters much. The Nats offense just isn't producing right now, which includes back to back shutout losses. Urias also looked great in his season opener, so the Nationals will have their work cut out for them anyway. Hard not to side with the Los Angeles Dodgers in this spot.
