Both team's number ones face each other: Tim Hudson for the Braves, Stephen Strasburg for the Nats.

Ramiro Pena did such a good job yesterday, he's rewarded with a start today!

  1. B.J. Upton - CF
  2. Jason Heyward - RF
  3. Justin Upton - LF
  4. Evan Gattis - C
  5. Dan Uggla - 2B
  6. Juan Francisco - 3B
  7. Chris Johnson - 1B
  8. Ramiro Pena - SS
  9. Tim Hudson - P

Last night's game brought back fond memories of the 9-0 comeback last year against the Nats, and Strasburg started that game. The Nats will have the same lineup 1-7 with Wilson Ramos doing the catching for Strasburg and batting eighth.

In 2012, Hudson gave up at least four runs in each of his three starts against Washington, all of them losses. Let's hope he can turn his recent bad luck against them around and keep this winning streak going.

The game will be one of three televised on FOX (TB/BOS and SF/CHC are the others) and, as usual, will be broadcast on radio at AM 680.
