Game 73 discussion thread: Nationals vs. Mariners

Old friend Adam Kennedy will be playing third base and batting third for the Mariners tonight. He’s actually having a pretty decent season – .274/.313/.425 with five homers – but his presence in the third spot kind of tells you what you need to know about the Mariners offense. They’ve scored 254 runs, 32 fewer than the Nationals.

If you’re watching the game on television, do not be alarmed by the Nationals’ leadoff hitter. It really is Jayson Werth. He just shaved his trademark beard, leaving only a soul patch.

Livan Hernandez, coming off a complete-game shutout, will try to keep rolling against Doug Fister, who’s got a 3-8 record despite a 3.53 ERA. We told you about that Mariners offense.

As always, talk about the game here.
