The Nationals tonight will try to get back to .500 for the first time since July 19. Their bullpen has been depleted by the previous two days. Without Rafael Soriano, Tyler Clippard or Craig Stammen available, Manager Davey Johnson said, Drew Storen will serve as the Nationals’ closer in case of a save situation. To start, they’ll give Gio Gonzalez the ball. Talk about the game right here.
