Hernandez (1-1) allowed two runs (one earned) on six hits and a walk over five innings in Thursday's win over Washington. He struck out four and picked up the victory.

Hernandez put together a nice performance after being roughed up in his previous start against the Reds, holding the Nationals off the board until the fifth inning. Alcides Escobar reached on an error and Juan Soto followed with a two-run homer, but Hernandez responded by inducing groundball outs from Josh Bell and Yadiel Hernandez to get through the frame. The 26-year-old hurler owns a 3.63 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 23:4 K:BB in 22.1 innings and is tentatively lined up to make his next start on the road against the struggling Mets.
