What better way to celebrate Independence Day than with a ballgame in the nation’s capital against the defending World Series champions? It’s tough to top that. The Nationals and Giants continue their series today, and continuing with recent July 4th tradition, the game will begin at 11:05 a.m. (weather permitting, of course).
Stephen Strasburg is on the mound for this one, looking to keep up his impressive turnaround since coming off the DL. He’ll need to be in fine form, because Madison Bumgarner gets the ball for San Francisco.
I’m attending a family wedding today, and Chase is on vacation. But Rich Dubroff was up bright and early this morning and will have full coverage from Nationals Park on CSNwashington.com. Enjoy the game and enjoy your Fourth of July!
