Denard Span will have some awkward moments today when he plays against his old team for the first time. “I still catch myself ‘us’ and ‘we.,’ ” Span said. “I have to change it and say, ‘them.’ It’s still an adjustment. I was starting to move on in the fact that I’m a National. Now, them coming to town, it feels like it’s spring training, I got traded all over again.”

The Nationals are tying to get back to .500 as Gio Gonzalez faces Kevin Correia. Talk about the game right here.
