The Nationals look to get above .500 by winning the rubber match of this three-game set against Pittsburgh. That Nationals will send left-hander John Lannan to the mound to face Paul Maholm, who shockingly has made more starts than any other left-hander in the NL since 2006.

As for the widsom of playing this game at night, stay tuned. Rain is expected in the area, and the skies over PNC Park darkened considerably from the early afternoon, when temperatures were in the 70s with little cloud cover.

Let’s hope they get this one in. Talk about the game right here.
