The Nats have less than a week left on the Grapefruit League schedule

Exactly a week from today, the Washington Nationals will be hosting the Boston Red Sox in Nationals Park. Today marks the last of 3 games remaining for the Nationals in The Ballpark of the Palm Beaches, and today the Nats are the visitors against their cohabitant Houston Astros for a 1:05pm. The pitching match-up features Tanner Roark of the Nationals and right-handed Lance McCullers for the Astros.

With Roark returning to camp, he just threw 48 pitches for Team USA in the WBC, and should be on a 65-70 pitch count today. Today could also mark the return to action for Daniel Murphy who needs his hacks to get his timing synchronised.

Today’s game is on the Houston Astros TV feed, and Charlie & Dave have the radio call. The Nationals are holding an open house today by invitation with the game shown on the big board.

From the Nationals: Come enjoy a fun-filled afternoon at Nationals Park on Saturday, March 25 beginning at 12:30 PM. Take pictures with the Racing Presidents and get ready for the season with special Team Store discounts.
