There are 162 chances for redemption in baseball. And following Friday night’s collapse by the Nationals bullpen, which allowed five runs, four of them earned, in a 6-4 loss to the Atlanta Braves in the opening series of an early marquee matchup between the two teams. In a matchup of both team’s No. 1 starter, Stephen Strasburg (1-1, 4.38 ERA) will start and Tim Hudson (1-0, 3.27 ERA) goes for the Braves. After saving three straight game in the White Sox series and rested on Friday, Rafael Soriano is presumably available if needed. The lineup are here. The game will be televised on Fox at 1 p.m. You know what to do here: talk about the game.
