Game #150 A.J. Cole in Miami: Game Thread

As the team celebrates Gio Gonzalez‘s birthday in the city of his youth, the Nationals really want to celebrate an improved Magic Number to make up for losing two in a row in Atlanta.

Tonight’s match-up is rookie A.J. Cole for the Nationals, and Wei Yin Chen for the Florida Marlins. Chen returns from the disabled list, and A.J. Cole continues in his quest to impress for a shot to make the Nationals post-season roster in some capacity.

Dusty Baker is sitting Daniel Murphy again today as he is resting the backside of his left leg or as Dusty Baker called it ‘his buttocks’. Bryce Harper is getting a much needed rest day for what Dusty calls a ‘mental day’.
