The Nationals will have their focus on the Phillies tonight, but perhaps one eye on the Braves. Even as the Nationals have played well recently, the Braves have won seven straight and cut the lead in the NL East to 2 ½ games. “It’s fun,” Manager Davey Johnson said. I like a good horse race.” The Nationals are wearing the blue, patriotic uniforms in honor of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America Night. Edwin Jackson faces Vance Worley. Talk about the game right here.
