They Can Come Home Again

After a mildly successful road trip, the Nationals return home for a brief 6-game homestand. First come our fierce rivals, the Blue Jays. Then, we have a return matchup with the Pirates.

It'll be tough to duplicate the success of the last homestand, but there's no reason that we can't go 4-2 against these teams, both of whom we are probably better than. 5-1 would sure be nice though!

Tonight, it's Esteban Loaiza against Josh Towers.

Frank has moved Tony Armas to Saturday, splitting up Loaiza and Liva, who know goes on Sunday. The bullpen will appreciate the respite.

We won't get Roy Halliday this time around, thankfully. We need to take advantage of it now, because after these six, come nine games against post-season competitors, with six of those on the road.
