The Washington Nationals will be back at Space Coast Stadium this afternoon to take on the Houston Astros.
Doug Fister will make his second appearance of the spring for the Nationals, after throwing two innings of one-run ball in the teams’ 10-3 win over the Marlins last Sunday. Fister gave up one hit while striking out two and walking one, throwing 19 of his 30 pitches for strikes.
