The Nats will have a game under the lights at 6:05 at Champion Stadium in Disney World against the Braves. Tanner Roark will start against former Yankee top prospect Manny Banuelos.
The Nats will send a travel roster featuring a travel roster that includes the hottest hitter perhaps in the Grapefruit League, Scott Sizemore, who could easily have a few more Home Runs if not for that left field jet stream that has been blowing with some strong gusts into leftfield.
Here is a video of Sizemore courtesy of Luis Albisu who has been providing us with some spectacular photos and videos.

Meanwhile, the Braves will be without Freddie Freeman who is nursing a sore right hand near his wrist that he says felt better today. The Braves made many cuts including some veterans including Kendrick and Volstad.
