We get Gio Gonzalez and Adam Wainwright today in Jupiter

JUPITER, Fla. - After getting quite a pitching matchup yesterday in Viera between Stephen Strasburg and Max Scherzer, we’ll get another stellar couple of starters taking the mound today here in Jupiter.

Gio Gonzalez will get the ball for the Nationals, and Adam Wainwright will make his fourth start of spring for the Cardinals.

Gonzalez seemed to make every single one of his spring starts last year here in Jupiter, which became a running joke among reporters and the left-hander. So here he is, back at Roger Dean Stadium yet again after making the two-hour trip from the Nats’ facility at Space Coast Stadium.

The Nats have a lineup composed mostly of guys expected to be bench players this season, with a couple of non-roster guys in there, as well. Jose Lozada, who spent the 2013 season at Double-A Harrisburg, will get the start at third base, and Caleb Ramsey, an 11th-round pick in the 2011 First-Year Player Draft who had a strong season at high Single-A Potomac last season, will play right.
