The Nationals will play, very likely, without Michael Morse and Ian Desmond as they nurse injuries that could have been worse. The Nationals send Gio Gonzalez (16-6, 3.23 ERA) to the mound to stop a two-game skid. With a win, the left-hander could notch a major league-leading 17th win. It’ll be a marquee pitching matchup, as he faces Roy Halladay (7-7, 3.95 ERA). As always, talk about the game here.
