The Nationals could use a pick-me-up victory after the blow of losing Gio Gonzalez to the disabled list this morning. Jordan Zimmermann faces Zack Wheeler, whom the Nationals have beaten once already this season. Zimmermann is 4-5 with a 3.22 ERA against the Mets in his career.
Before the game, bullpen coach Matt LeCroy vowed he would eat a banana-and-mayonnaise sandwich for lunch. He claims the Nationals are 4-0 on days he scarfs one of those.
