The Nationals begin a seven-game home stand with tonight’s opener against the Mets and starter Chris Young, who is making his first start since being placed on the disabled list retroactive to April 11 with right biceps tendinitis.
Young’s last outing before the injury was against the Nationals on April 10, when the right-hander yielded one hit and one run over seven innings but did not figure in the decision.
Jordan Zimmermann takes the mound for Washington looking to rebound from his worst outing of the season on April 20. Zimmermann allowed five runs, eight hits and two walks over six innings against Milwaukee to lose his second game in a row.
Just keep your fingers crossed the Nationals don’t get more inclement weather. Talk about the game right here.
