Game 46 lineups: Nats vs. Mets

As we saw last night, just because two starting pitchers are facing each other for the second time in six days, there's no guarantee the result will stay the same. And yet, the Nationals will be hoping for just that tonight when Stephen Strasburg faces Matt Harvey in a rematch of Thursday night's 9-1 victory for the Nats at Citi Field.

For those who have lost track, Strasburg is 7-0 this year, and the Nationals have won his last 13 starts dating to 2015, a franchise record.

Harvey, on the other hand, is under all kinds of intense scrutiny right now after an abysmal outing against these Nats that raised his ERA to 5.77. We have no way of knowing how he'll perform tonight, but this much we do know: The New York media will have an incredibly strong opinion about it, one way or the other, most likely in the form of overreaction.
