Series Preview: Marlins @ Nationals

DC Sports Nexus ---- Friday, April 20, 2012

The Nat's are rolling at the start of the season without dropping a series so far.  They will look to keep up that streak as they go up against the division rival Miami Marlins.  This should be a decent test for the pitching staff as Miami has some decent offensive firepower.  Sunday would be a great chance for you all to get out to the ball park and cheer on the Nat's before they depart on a long road trip out west.

  • Friday: 7:05 PM, Detwiler (1-0) vs Zambrano (0-0). 
  • Saturday: 7:05 PM, Strasburg (2-0) vs Sanchez (1-0).
  • Sunday: 1:35 PM, Gonzalez (1-0) vs Johnson (0-2).

My pick for the game to make sure you watch in this series is Saturday.  The Marlin's lineup will be a really great test for Strasburg and a chance for him to show why he is the ace of this staff.  On the other side, Sanchez is a perfect 7-0 against the Nat's in his career, but he has never faced THIS Nationals team and I think it's about time for that perfect streak to come to an end.
