The White Sox pay a visit to Washington to face the Nationals in April. Yes, it’s April and the Nationals and White Sox are playing. Thanks to the Houston Astros moving to the AL West and resulting new interleague format (you can credit MLB for that), teams from opposing leagues face each other earlier than before and year-round. Asked it felt unusual to face an AL team in the second home series of the season, Davey Johnson agreed: “It does seem kinda strange.” Gio Gonzalez (1-0, 0.00 ERA) takes the mound against the team that originally drafted him in 2004 out of high school. Right-hander Jake Peavy (1-0, 1.50 ERA), who Stephen Strasburg idolized growing up in San Diego, takes the mound for the White Sox. As always, talk about the game here.
