Nats kick off 10-game homestand
The well-rested Nationals will take on the Reds to kick off a 10-game homestand tonight. Chien-Ming Wang, coming off of a strong outing against the Cubs, will take on Mike League in tonight’s matchup.
Here are tonight’s lineups:
*In case you missed it, the Nationals signed their top draft picks at the deadline last night; this includes first-round picks Anthony Rendon and Alex Meyer, sandwich-round selection Brian Goodwin, and third-rounder Matt Purke.
*Though he’s not in the lineup tonight, Jonny Gomes will face his former team for the first time this series, should he get in a game before Thursday’s finale.
*In five plate appearances against Leake, Zimmerman has two base hits and a walk. Werth has three hits, a walk and an RBI in seven plate appearances against Leake.
