College of Sports Media Game of the Night:
They’re by far the worst team in all of baseball and have absolutely no chance of playing any type of meaningful baseball in September. That being said, the Washington Nationals are also the hottest team in baseball riding an eight game winning streak into Atlanta to play the first of two with the Braves. Leading the charge for the Nationals are Adam Dunn and Ryan Zimmerman. Combined the dynamic duo have bombed 54 home runs and batted in 159 runs. Atlanta on the other hand is smack dab in the middle of a tightly contested Wild Card race. They sit in the fourth spot and trail the Wild Card leading Colorado Rockies by four games. They may also have a shot at their division. They’re only four and a half games behind the leading Philadelphia Phillies, but would also have to leap frog a surging Florida Marlins team, who are a game up on the Braves. In tonight’s game the Washington Nationals have lefty John Lannan (7-7) on the mound. Atlanta counters with rookie Tommy Hanson (6-2).
Another game to watch may be in Seattle as its game two between the Chicago White Sox and the Mariners. Why you ask? Tonight Alex Rios might be seen patrolling centre field in his White Sox debut. Also Chicago trails the Detroit Tigers by three and hope Rios may help them in their post season push. John Danks (9-8) goes for Chi-town and Doug Fister (0-0) makes his Major League debut for Seattle.
