Phillies at Nationals discussion thread: Game 50

(Gene Puskar / AP)

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.

James Wagner joined the Post in August 2010, wrote about high school sports across the region for two years and has covered the Nationals since the middle of the 2012 season.
