Series Preview: Nationals @ Marlins

DC Sports Nexus ---- Friday, July 13, 2012

All Star Break is over and the Nats are being thrown right back into the fray of the NL East.  They face the Marlins in Miami in a four game series to open up the second half.  As talked about, Davey is going with a new order rotation, so here is how the series stacks up:
  • Friday: 7:10 PM, Zimmermann (5-6) vs Johnson (5-5).
  • Saturday: 7:10 PM, Gonzalez (12-3) vs Buehrle (8-8).
  • Sunday: 1:10 PM, Strasburg (9-4) vs Nolasco (8-6).
  • Monday: 7:10 PM, Jackson (5-4) vs Zambrano (4-7).
Game of the Series:  Saturday.  Gonazalez versus Buehrle is the big time match up in this four game series.  Buehrle is also the guy with this best shot of beating the Nationals on the Marlins.

Sound of the Series:  Easy choice this week.  The All Star Game is nice and everything, but baseball fans everywhere just want regular baseball back.

Prediction Time:
Putting my reputation as a "baseball guy" on the line by predicting the outcomes of each series.  Feel free to yell at me in the comments or on twitter @dru90.
