The Nationals will try for a sweep tonight against the Mets behind Stephen Strasburg, who will try to improve upon his performance on the road this year. A day Denard Span was out of the lineup for a day off, he’s back at the top tonight. Michael Taylor also remains in the lineup for the third straight night, in right field as Jayson Werth continues to recover from a cortisone shot he received yesterday.
