The Washington Nationals wrap up their 4 game series at Nationals Park with the Atlanta Braves. Dusty Baker is waiting to see how Stephen Strasburg is feeling this morning as players arrive in order to fill in his line-up card.
Jayson Werth is also scheduled for a day off; however, we know Jayson has talked himself back into the line-up before and he did hit a booming 2-run HR last night to push the margin of victory to 3 runs in that 3-0 win.
Ryan Zimmerman is due back in the line-up today as well as Anthony Rendon who pinch-hit late for Dusty last night.
For now we have prepared the Stephen Strasburg vs. Braves batters box as well as the Yusmeiro Petit box.
Stay tuned for changes and updates and expect sunny skies and 63°F warm air for 1st pitch at 4:05pm.
After the game, the Nats will most likely bus it up to Philadelphia to start their road trip.
