Nats face Twins again in exhibition finale

Hello from Nationals Park, where it's currently raining (shocking, I know), but the forecast calls for clearing skies in time for today's 12:05 p.m. exhibition finale between the Nationals and Twins. It will be a bit chilly, though, good practice for what the first few weeks of the regular season could be like.

After last night's 4-3 victory here, Dusty Baker is going with nearly the same lineup. The only change: Michael A. Taylor gets the start in center field instead of Ben Revere. Interesting that Taylor is taking Revere's leadoff spot. We saw that some this spring, but will that be the case during the season as well? Guess we'll find out.

Joe Ross, who will make the opening day roster and be the No. 5 starter, gets his final tune-up today, with Ricky Nolasco on the mound for Minnesota ...

Gametime: 12:05 p.m. EDT
