Game 78 discussion thread: Nationals at White Sox

At about 12:20 local time, 50 minutes before first pitch, General Manager Mike Rizzo thanked John McLaren in front of the Nationals, and the clubhouse instantly erupted with applause. McLaren will end an awkward tenure as Nationals interim manager today, trying to take a series from the Chicago White Sox.

Livan Hernandez will pitch for the Nationals, trying to bounce back from a difficult start that preceded the Nationals' memorable five-run ninth inning last week. Jayson Werth and Ryan Zimmerman are both trying to regroup after going hitless with five combined strikeouts yesterday.

As always, talk about the game right here.
