This are two pitchers who know each other. Kris Medlen from his Atlanta Braves years before serious arm troubles faces off against Stephen Strasburg. This 2:15pm afternoon game is the 6th game on this road trip before the Nats head to Wrigley Field for a 4 game series starting tomorrow.
Dusty will employ a day game after a night game roster and can take advantage of the DH to rest a player. It worked well for Jayson Werth last night as he went 2-4 with a HR.
Here are the Nats against Kris Medlen:
Here is Stephen Strasburg against the Royals:
Line-up (subject to change without notice):
Taylor 8, Rendon 5, Harper 9, Zimmerman DH, Murphy 4, Werth 7, Ramos 2, Robinson 3, Espinosa 6, Strasburg 1
