Well not much.
Instead of talking about breaking records for best batting averages, most home runs, ERA etc. The only record were talking about breaking is the 100 losses record. The team does seem adamant about spoiling it for division rivals and will be putting the best lineup on the field (which isn’t much) for those games. We will see the likes of speedsters Tony Campana and Dave Sappelt in the lineup a lot this September. You will also see the likes of newcomer Miguel Socolovich and also recalled Chris Rusin who is on the mound tonight.
Veteran right-hander Edwin Jackson (8-9, 3.53 ) will try to make another contribution to the Nationals’ division title chase by building on a superb outing Tuesday night against the visiting Cubbies.
Chris Rusin (0-1, 1.80) will try to help the Cubs snap a three-game skid as he returns to the majors. The left-hander gave up one run and one hit over five innings in his MLB debut Aug. 21 in Milwaukee but took the loss in a 5-2 defeat.
I’m not going to sit here and bore you with blah blah blah because there isn’t blah blah blah to talk about.
The lineups consists of:
DeJesus RF, Valbuena 3B, Rizzo 1B, Soriano LF, Castro SS, Castillo C, Jackson CF, Barney 2B, Rusin P
Werth CF, Desmond SS, Zimmerman 3B, Morse RF, LaRoche 1B, Espinosa 2B, Moore LF, Flores C, Jackson P

Nationals Park, Washington, D.C.
Go Cubs Go!!!
