The Nationals have risen to the top of the National League East, in part, by pounding their divisional opponents. The Nationals have gone 9-1-3 in series against the NL East, including the win they secured against the Mets already. They are 23-14 within the division; no other NL East team is more than one game over .500. Today, they get to send Stephen Strasburg to the mound against Jeremy Hefner. Talk about the game right there.
