The Nationals seem to be set up well tonight in their growing-more-desperate-by-the-day pursuit of the second wild card. They play the team with the worst record in the National League, and the Reds play the Dodgers, who have league’s best record. In Vegas, though, the Nats are the underdog and the Reds are the favorite. That’s what happens when one team is facing Jose Fernandez and the other is facing Chris Capuano.
Dan Haren will try to topple Fernandez, who is making the penultimate start of his remarkable rookie season. Talk about the game right here.
