Eight home runs were hit between both teams on Wednesday and batting practice on Thursday didn’t appear much better. In a match-up of veteran right-handers, Freddy Garcia pitches for the Orioles and Dan Haren for the Nationals. Adam LaRoche asked for a day off from the field and will serve as designated hitter while Chad Tracy will play first base. The lineups are here. As always, talk about the game here.
