In the actual game, Tom Milone will make he second start of his career against Bud Norris. Milone’s Class AAA Manager, Randy Knorr, has come to the Nationals from Syracuse. Knorr explained that on days with a light roster, he would actually use Milone as a pinch-hitter. So maybe that home run he hit on the first pitch he saw in the majors wasn’t a total fluke.

As always, talk about the game right here.
