The Nationals will try to win their series in Philadelphia and come one step closer to clinching the National League East. With a win tonight and a Braves loss, the Nationals could seal the division title as early as Friday night in St. Louis.

Danny Espinosa is back in the lineup after Manager Davey Johnson held him out last night. The Nationals are back to their rubber stamp lineup. Gio Gonzalez will try for his 21st win, which would keep him at least one win ahead of R.A. Dickey for the league lead.
