The Nats are on their way to Lakeland, Florida to play the Detroit Tigers at Joker Marchant Stadium at 1:05pm. Yusmeiro Petit was supposed to start today and due to yesterday’s rain-out, Joe Ross will now start the game versus Justin Verlander.
Also, the Nats projected Opening Day starters will make the trip and all will be in exactly what was predicted for Opening Day here last night with the stacked lefties that Dusty seems to favor against RHPs:
- Ben Revere CF
- Daniel Murphy 2B
- Bryce Harper RF
- Ryan Zimmerman 1B
- Jayson Werth LF
- Anthony Rendon 3B
- Wilson Ramos C
- Danny Espinosa SS
- Tyler Moore DH
Joe Ross RHP
This game will be carried with Charlie and Dave on the radio!
This is where Bryce Harper’s HR was hit above the tall batter’s eye:
Al Kaline has been watching baseball in Tiger Town since 1953. He said that he's never seen a ball hit where Bryce Harper hit one today.
