Analysis: At least Roark did not walk a batter after issuing 73 last season, tied for fifth-most in the NL. He wasn't helped by the Nationals committing three errors behind him, but they did give him six runs of support for a second straight game, so another high win total could be in his future. He won 16 games last season and is 2-0 this year.

We expect him to be better next time out.
