The Nationals’ record sits at 48-48 record, the 20th time they’re at .500 this season. If anything, that’s consistent. But, the Nationals are tied with the Philadelphia Phillies for second place. Gio Gonzalez (7-3, 3.03 ERA) takes the mound and will oppose Zack Greinke (8-2, 3.49 ERA), a former well-known Nationals’ trade target. The lineups are here. As always, vent about the game here.
