The Washington Nationals have their first getaway day of the season Thursday afternoon, playing the Miami Marlins in the finale of their three-game, four-day set at Nationals Park. After the game, the Marlins will mosey on up to New York to play the Mets while the Nationals will head to Cincinnati for a series that will feature two teams many expect to be in the playoffs.

The Marlins have a new cleanup hitter to face Jordan Zimmermann, with Greg Dobbs earning the honor on Thursday.
