Nationals-Braves discussion thread: Game 4

All signs to point to Jordan Zimmermann making Friday’s home opener start against the rival Atlanta Braves. The Nationals could badly use him, as the back-up plan of relievers would not only hamper the team on Friday but also the following days. Right-hander David Hale starts for the Braves. “I think the city is excited about it, to have baseball back for this year,” Manager Matt Williams said.

The Nationals will remember the victims of last fall’s Navy Yard shootings and the first responders. A plaque at the stadium was dedicated in their honor before the game. The lineups are here. As always, discuss the game here.
