Game Time: 7:35 PM


Tony Armas, RHP (7-7, 4.53)
Armas will make his first appearance since Aug. 23. On that day, Armas left the game against the Reds after three innings because of a sore left shoulder.

Smoltz looks for his team-high 14th win after breaking a four-start winless streak his last time out at Milwaukee. He? pitched seven innings in 15 of his last 17 starts and is 1-0 with a 2.86 ERA (seven ER in 22 IP) in three starts against Washington this season.

This is the lineup from CBS Sportsline.  Nothing up yet on MLB.com, but I'm interested to see whether or not Zimmerman plays.  It was supposed to be virtually guaranteed that he was playing tonight, but perhaps not?

Apparently Furcal is starting instead of Betemit, and Zimmerman is not starting.  Whether he will play at all, who knows.

I'm sure, he's (Zim) gonna play against the phillies, pretty sure.

Cruz is batting second...I hope, he's gonna do better then Guzman. :D

This will be a very difficult game I think.  John Smoltz is going to have to have a flu or something.

However...whatever....LETS GO NATS!!!

2-0 Atl. That was quick.  For anybody watching the game, what happened on Furcals infield single.  Did Cruz make a weak throw?

It seemed like a weak throw, but it wasn't terrible fielding or anything.  Furcal made it to first very quickly.

I can't understand how Brad Wilkerson can go through his entire career striking out like he does.  It reminds me of the kid that burns his hand on the kitchen stove.  When Wilkie was a kid I guess no matter how many times he burned himself he just kept touching the stove.  :roll:

He doesn't seem to have anything going on today. This is going to be very difficult with this start. But you never know, lets score some runs and see what will happen.
