Solano behind the plate, Lombardozzi playing second in Game 1

What a gorgeous day it is at Nationals Park. You’d have never known that the entire stadium nearly got washed away last night.

We’ve got sunny skies and temperatures in the 70s today, and if you’re a Nationals fan, you probably can’t ask for a much better day as the home schedule wraps up. Two ballgames in nice weather with the Nats still holding out hope of a playoff spot.

Dan Haren will start game one today, and he’ll throw to Jhonatan Solano. Wilson Ramos will catch Stephen Strasburg in the nightcap.

Solano will get a chance to play against his younger brother Donovan, who is batting second for the Marlins.

Steve Lombardozzi will play second base this afternoon.
