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.

That’s great that Rendon and Meyer got signed. The Nats are on their way up in the NL East, that’s for sure. It’s gonna take them a few more years to compete with the Phillies though.
