Rain, rain, go away


Hopefully the sky will be blue on Sunday for series finales across Major League Baseball.

A storm blew up the east coast Saturday from the southeast, postponing both the Nationals and the Marlins’ games. Washington will play host to a traditional doubleheader tomorrow for their series finale with the Brewers. The Marlins and Phillies will make up their game on June 15th.

Anibal Sanchez will face Cole Hamels in the City of brotherly love on Sunday in the shortened-series finale. If the Fish can take down the Phillies, the two teams will be tied for first in the East.

Greg Dobbs gave the Phillies something to lament over on Friday night when he hit a pinch-hit two-run single to give the Marlins the lead. Dobbs has been a consistent pinch-hitter this season, and has been filling in at third base while Florida is trying to resolve the hot-corner position.

In our nation’s capital, Jason Marquis will take the mound versus Yovani Gallardo. Marco Estrada is set to take on Livan Hernandez for the second game of the day. If the Nationals sweep, they will be above .500 for the first time in…who knows when.

With Ryan Zimmerman on the DL, the Nats have been getting offensive help from Jayson Werth, Danny Espinosa, and Wilson Ramos–among others.

  1. Great analysis. Nats finally get their offense going and win game 1 vs. the Brew Crew.

    Fish fall to the Phillys. Have a great week everyone!
