Game 40 discussion thread: Nats vs. Marlins

Jason Marquis gets the start for the Nationals, who are trying to avoid losing a fourth straight game and a sweep against their National League East rival. Washington will be without shortstop Ian Desmond for a second straight game because of a sore left quadriceps muscle.

Washington’s offense struggled mightily in yesterday’s 1-0 loss during which Marlins ace Anibal Sanchez scattered three hits over eight innings and Leo Nunez collected his MLB best 14th save in as many opportunities.

This afternoon Florida sends Javier Vazquez to the mound on a party sunny afternoon that hopefully won’t include much if any precipitation. Talk about the game right here.
