The Nationals were resilient Friday night against the Phillies, clawing out an 11-inning, 4-3 win against a key divisional foe.
Their reward for such a victory? How about a 1 p.m. start time for Saturday.
That's just what we have here today as the Nats and Phillies will partake in a little day baseball with Gio Gonzalez getting the start for the home team. Vance Worley will pitch for the Phillies.
Note: Ray Knight is under the weather today, so I'll be filling in for the pregame and postgame festivities on "Nats Xtra." I'm sure you're all overjoyed.
