Game Thread: Nats v. Reds - 4/5/13

Only three games into the 2013 season and we only have one undefeated team? True. And that would be the Reds (2-1) next opponent to visit Great American Ball Park, the Washington Nationals (3-0). Our friends over on District on Deck sent us this tweet…

Would have been nice to square off in the NLCS last year, huh?

DOD Co-editor Jared Book has a look at the series. Jared is my second favorite Canadian. We all know who’s first…

Game time is 7:10 PM ET. Here’s your starting pitchers for tonight’s battle between the NL’s top two teams from the 2012 season.
