Welcome to MASN's live thread for tonight's Nationals-Cardinals game at Busch Stadium. We're tag-teaming this one tonight; Kristen Hudak will have the first part of the game, and I'll have the second half. We'll have updates and analysis throughout the game, and whether you're just watching the game on TV or following online, you can participate by commenting in this thread. Or, if you're on Twitter, you can tag tweets with #masnnats, and they'll be included in the chat.
If you want to participate in the chat via our Gamezone space, which includes live stats, matchup data, pitch tracking and more, head here. And if you're not into in the live chat experience, that's fine, too; I'll provide periodic updates below the chat window.
