Hang on. I think you'll find I wrote about this one in the series preview, so I'm not sure there is much more I can usefully add to what I said there. Basically, both pitchers will be looking to improve on their last starts, which even their respective mothers would be hard-pushed to describe as mediocre. As also discussed there, this is an important series for both teams, who need to catch up on the teams above them, and are faced with a steadily-shrinking window of games in which to do it. Mind you, if the Nationals could put up another 14-spot on the Giants, like last night, I wouldn't mind.

BattleMoses driving the recap train again tonight. Line-up after the jump.

  9. Ian Kennedy.P

And, of course, Zagurski in the bullpen. I'll have to check the small print, but I don't think that "Designated For Assignment" usually means "re-added to the major-league roster a couple of days later." Sigh. Just when you thought you were out, they pull you back in. Let's hope we don't see him tonight, because you know what that usually means...
