The Nationals begin Sunday with a 25-24 record facing the 24-25 Phillies. In a rare in-season pairing of No. 1 starters, Stephen Strasburg (2-5, 2.68 ERA) opposes Cole Hamels (1-7, 4.45 ERA), who is off to a bad start. For those who are interested, Davey Johnson is still growing his beard. The lineups are here. As always, talk about the game here.
