After showing an actual pulse and taking 2 of 3 from the Padres, the Nats get ready for a 3 game set against the Giants to finish out the 1st half. Matt Cain (KANE!) takes the hill tonight for San Fran against a fella by the name of (checks team website)….Stephen Strasburg. I understand he’s quite good. Saturday will feature Giants lefty Johnathan Sanchez being opposed by Craig Stammen. The 1st half finale will see Livan Hernandez battle Giants rookie Madison Bumgarner. I’ll be back Monday barring something crazy happening tonight with a 1st half review and comprehensive coverage of Matt Capps warming up in the 6th inning for the NL All-Star team.
