Nationals at Marlins: Game 160 discussion thread


(Matt Slocum - AP)
With a victory tonight, the Nationals would even their record at 80-80, at .500 for the first time since July 18, when they were 48-48. The Nationals will also be able to finish with a winning record for the first time if they can win tonight and tomorrow.

Javier Vazquez will make the final start of his career for the Marlins, and John Lannan will make the final start of his season. Lannan notched his career-best 10th win in his previous start, and he carries a 3.73 ERA into tonight. By pitching four innings tonight, Lannan ensure he reaches his second-highest season inning total.
