Today's lineups: Battle of the Beltways Round II

← return to Nationals Watch

BALTIMORE — Coming to you live from Baltimore for the second round of the Battle of the Beltways and, if history is any guide, this one might feature a couple of home runs. Camden Yards is certainly a hitter’s ballpark and when it’s hot (my car said it was 97 degrees in Baltimore) like it is today, the ball flies.

Last year, the Nationals rolled into Camden Yards fresh off back-to-back shutouts in New York City. They scored 17 runs in a 17-5 lambasting of the Orioles that featured six home runs and six players with multi-RBI.

The Nationals will be hoping for some of that same luck tonight.
